Liven Up Your Summer
Care for a Science Center Animal

Do you have a soft spot for a critter that’s furry, feathered, or scaled? The Science Center is looking to adopt out our live animals over summer break. We’ll give you training, written instructions, and an initial food supply. Adoption months will be approximately mid-June through mid-September. For more information, contact the Science Center:  sciencecenter@ka12.ma.us. Or, call Newman School and ask to be transferred to the Science Center: 781-455-0416.
