Experience the wondrous world of science through fun hands on science experiments and activities!
We will explore different areas of science through engaging books, videos, songs, class discussions, and best of all through hands-on learning! Our young scientists will be introduced to the scientific method by asking questions, making predictions, doing experiments and activities, and recording their results. This will be an exciting hands-on class with materials that you probably have around the house, so dive in and explore your inner scientist while having lots of fun!
Participation in the experiments and activities is encouraged, but not necessary – learners may simply watch the teacher do a live demonstration, although participating will absolutely make this more exciting. Experiments and activities are safe and do not involve heat or an open flame!
