Visit a Farm
$5 - $10
Agri-science is not only big business, but it's also WAY more STEM-oriented now than it ever has been. Between the technology involved and the food science that surrounds it, farms must be well versed in many fields of STEM. One stop by a local farm, and you'll see why. Side note: While we don't promote kids drinking wine, a vineyard is technically a farm, and we find the vineyard tour to be a pretty neat educational opportunity. You're the parents...so you can decide on that one!
There are a couple of GREAT farms that accommodate visits:
18186 Dairy Farm Rd, Lewes, DE 19958
Black Hog Farmstead
16371 New Rd, Lewes, DE 19958
Nassau Valley Vineyards

Black Hog might require a call ahead.
Hopkins has ice cream...so be advised.
The vineyard offers tastings (for adults)...so bring a designated driver if the adults are going to partake.
