Detective Investigations-Part 1

You'll become a real forensic scientist as you use modern day crime solving techniques to solve a variety of mysteries. Some of the tests you will perform are fingerprint analysis, chromatography (ink analysis), hair analysis using microscopes and more! There will be a new case to crack each week. Come join the fun!

Wednesdays: Sept. 16, 23, 30 and Oct. 7

Rocks and Minerals

Come explore the fascinating world of rocks and minerals! We'll explore crystal formation, and learn how to identify minerals through various tests like the Mohs hardness test, specific gravity, color, streak and others. We'll also learn about sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic rocks.

Wednesdays: Oct. 14, 21, 28 and Nov. 4

The Incredible Human Body

Come discover how wonderfully intricate the human body is! We’ll explore the digestive, respiratory and circulatory systems as well as bones and muscles. You’ll learn how your own body works. Come join the fun!

Wednesdays: Nov. 11, 18 and Dec. 2, 9

Inventors and Their Inventions

What does it take to be an inventor and make some of the most famous inventions

of all time? We will complete some of the experiments that were used by inventors

like Galileo (make a telescope) and Thomas Edison (make a light bulb). You will

even make a few inventions of your own, like an apparatus to safely escort and egg

from the top of a building to the ground. Put on your thinking caps before you

come to this class!

Wednesdays: Dec. 16, Jan. 13, 20, 27 (no class Dec. 23, 30 and Jan. 6)

Biology of Birds

Why do birds have feathers? 

What kind of birds live near your home? 

What are the different types of beaks and feet that birds have and what does that say about what they eat and where they live? 

We'll answer these and many more questions as we take an in-depth look at the biology of birds. We'll even piece together what an owl had for breakfast by dissecting owl pellets! You won't want to miss this fascinating look into the world of birds.

Wednesdays: Feb. 3, 10, 24, Mar. 3 (no class Feb. 17)

Space, The Final Frontier

The final frontier....come explore the planets of our solar system including satellites like our moon! We'll discover what planets are made of and what the differences are among them. We'll even discover why the Earth is the perfect place for us to live. You'll get to make your own rocket to launch on the last day of class!

Wednesdays: Feb. 3, 10, 24 and Mar. 3

The Tiny World of Microbes

Welcome to the wonderful world of microbes! We'll look at the differences between plant and animal cells and also discover protists and bacteria. With the use of our microscopes we'll also discover what lives in a drop of pond water as well as some crazy new organisms each week! fi causes some things to float while others sink?

Let's find the answers through hands-on experiments!

Wednesdays: Apr. 21, 28, May 5, 12

Mean, Green Photosynthesizing Machines (2 week class)

Come learn about the fascinating life of plants. Plants provide us with life giving oxygen. In this class we’ll grow our own plants and learn all about the different parts of plants, photosynthesis and the carbon-oxygen cycle and we’ll also discover the process of germination and transpiration. You’ll be a real green thumb when you finish this class.

Wednesdays: May 19, 26th
