Learning with Hands-On Activities
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.
Our 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.
Our unique Science Club program is designed to meet the needs of children in grades K-4. 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. Science was never this much fun!
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.
Club SciKidz believes in parental involvement. Parent Guides are on our website with at home activities for your scientist!
Each science unit lasts for five sessions. Sessions meet once a week for approximately 60 minutes. Class size is 8-10 students, per instructor, with the cost of $80 per student per unit.
Sign-up for both 5-week units (if two are offered that semester) and pay only $150. Register today!

|Have you ever heard the saying "necessity is the motherhood of invention?"|
During Invention Convention we will discover how some of the
things we use every day came about. Did you know that several of our
modern conveniences were invented by NASA scientists for the space
program? We will explore how something goes from a rocket ship to
