For years educators have stressed that students learn better "by doing" - especially in the sciences. Students of all ages learn more science-content and skills when they engage in investigation and discovery using everyday materials and the basic equipment of science. We incorporated these ideas when we created our after school STEM programs.
How can this learning take place?
Our after school STEM programs feature carefully designed inquiry centered lessons that involve children with hands-on activities which capture children's natural curiosity, stimulate their interest in science, and teach them important science topics along with critical thinking skills.
About Our After School STEM Programs
Our unique Science Club program is designed to meet the needs of children in grades K-6. Club SciKidz lessons help engage students in observation, measurement, identification of properties, and experimentation involving life, earth, and physical science concepts. The units are rigorously researched by science educators with the help of teachers and children. The results are lessons that students can enjoy and genuinely learn from.
Dozens of program topics!
Rocketry, Chemistry, Paleontology, Forensics, Weather, Flight, Technology, and many other disciplines of science. All Club SciKidz lessons are designed to help with the development of the following scientific process skills: observing, classifying, comparing, measuring, critical thinking, predicting, hypothesizing, sequencing, and experimentation.
Each science enrichment SEMESTER lasts for 8-10 weeks. Classes meet once a week for approximately 60 minutes. Minimum number of students required is 15. We can customize sessions based on your need. Email /call us for details.
