Learn physical and chemical properties of matter through fun experiments then apply this information to discover the identity of unknown substances. Plus, you will learn how to measure and pour using the same equipment that scientists use in labs today!
- Fri: Sept. 8, 15, 22, 29
In this class, we will conduct experiments to learn about the brain, the nervous system, the skin and sight. We will do experiments with your own body (don’t worry, nothing hurts). We’ll even dissect a brain! Don’t miss out!

Expanding World of Gases
How do you get an egg stuck in a jar and remove it using only gas pressure? If that’s not enough, you’ll build your own hot air balloon and we will fly them on the last day of class. Don’t miss out on the fun!
- Fri: Nov. 3, 10, 17, Dec. 1 (no class Nov. 24)
Become a novice meteorologist in just 4 short weeks! You will make your own weather station to take home. We’ll discover how a thermometer actually measures the speed of particles through experimenting with the thermometers you will make in class. Learn the difference between Fahrenheit and Celsius through measuring samples in class. How do clouds form? Why do clouds have different names? We’ll make our own clouds and see if clouds form better in clean or dirty air. Discover why weather patterns form, which clouds bring rain, and how tornadoes form. Does warm air rise or fall? What about cold air? How does that make our weather? What is lightning and how is it formed? We’ll have clouds, rain, dew, wind, tornadoes and lightning right inside our classroom! Bring an umbrella for this one!

More Detective Investigations
Are you ready for more mysterious capers that need to be investigated? We will put you to work as a forensic scientist, using actual crime lab techniques to help us solve some interesting but silly cases. Completion of Detective Investigations #1 is not necessary for participation in this class. This class is all Hands-On!
- Fri: Jan. 26, Feb. 2, 9, 16 (no class Feb. 23-President’s week)
How do you define life? What is the difference between living and non-living objects? What are the differences between solids, liquids and gases? What causes some things to float while others sink? Let’s find the answers through hands-on experiments!
- Fri: Mar. 2, 9, 16, 23
Amazing World of Water
Water is one of the most abundant resources on earth. What is it made of and how does it function? You’ll be amazed at how much you do not know about this substance that constantly surrounds us. We’ll learn about why it is important to protect the water on our planet and we’ll even perform some water tests by designing and using our own water filters. Come join the fun!
- Fri: Mar. 30, (No class Apr. 6) Apr. 13, 20, 27
In this class your students will learn about the behavior differences among various types of animals. Just a few of the questions we will explore are: What is the difference between an earthworm and a mealworm? What does a snail eat? What is an earthworm’s favorite spot, light or dark, moist or dry? We’ll have all hands-on activities to learn about the behavior of these and other critters.
