Scientists in Action is an engaging “Mr. Wizard”-type week in the science lab doing chemistry, physics, biology and more! Does your child take stuff apart just to see how it works? Does she want to read and learn about animals and how they live? Does he like to build and create new inventions? If so, have your child join in our scientific fun. We will spend the week investigating, dissecting, building, observing, creating and finding out “why and how” things happen. Children are grouped by age. Enrollment is limited, so sign up soon for this fun-filled week of wondering and investigating.
