Educational In-Class Programs (preschool through grade 8)

 

Our educators are experts at getting kids excited about science and we will bring science from the real world into the classroom.  Workshops are age specific and will include hands on experiences, educational hand-outs, stories, games, and crafts.

Program Length: 50 minutes.
Class Size: 15-30 students; at least one chaperone required.

Students will receive educational hand-outs, a survey to complete upon completion of the program (age specific), and a Certificate of Participation.
