    Join us this session for some awesome hands-on science FUN! Uncover the mysteries of air, and learn about aerodynamics. Discover gravity and have FUN as we push, pull and get the job done! Have fun with chemistry and learn about solar power.

    Topics covered: Nutty Newton, air pressure, food chains, flight, our living planet, bubbles and chemistry

    Science Made Fun programs provide an opportunity to expose kids, at an early age, to the amazing world of science and nature, through discovery-style learning and inquiry-based dialogue with a real scientist. In this hands-on science class, students will explore various topics among chemistry, physical, life and Earth sciences. Each week the students will discover a new and engaging scientific concept, which will be accompanied by two or three hands-on experiments which bring the concept to life. Students roll up their sleeves and become REAL scientists!

    Session 3 Classes:

    Earth Sciences 
    Our Living Planet©: Discover the effects of global warming! Have FUN as we explore clean and renewable energy.
