These hands-on programs will integrate science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics in fun and exciting ways! Lasting 45-60 minutes, these programs are ideal for budding scientists who want to try some experiments of their own.
This program is suggested for rising 3rd-5th grade students.
Registration is not required, but space is limited.
