School Science Adventures

Children are naturally curious during this wonder- filled age as they begin to make sense of the world around them.  Getting kids hooked on science at an early age is so important as the world becomes increasingly centered on the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields.  Young children need practice and to be guided in the skills of hypothesizing, observing, experimenting, revising, and communicating their findings. 

Fueling kids interest in science through hands-on discovery and helping to build the skills needed for a lifetime of learning is what we are all about!

We believe early childhood is a wonderful time to harness a child’s curiosity about the natural world. Our captivating hands-on activities will build the inquiry skills needed for a lifetime of learning and ignite your student’s enthusiasm for science. We can’t wait to wonder why with them and guide them in scientific discovery!

Science is a way of thinking much more than it is a body of knowledge.
