Club NF goes to the Science Center!

Saint Louis Science Center
5050 Oakland Ave, St. Louis, MO 63110

Washington University NF Center and St. Louis Children’s Hospital invite you to attend our upcoming Club NF event, a FREE therapy and educational program for children with NF1.

Join us on Saturday, October 7th, at the Saint Louis Science Center
for an instructional event where participants will create a Rube
Goldberg machine and learn to build Salvage Bots. The activities
will target and promote development of the following skills often
delayed in children with NF1:

  • Fine motor skills including handwriting, tying shoes,
    getting dressed and organizing a school binder
  • Executive function skills such as following multiple step
    directions, and finishing homework and school projects
  • Social skills to enable your child to speak in a group, initiate conversation, make eye contact and boost confidence

View the event flyer for additional event details.

Every child must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
