Our After-School Science Enrichment program begins the end of September and goes throughout the school year with four unique sessions. Each session is six or seven weeks in duration with a different lesson theme each week. Classes meet immediately after school at your location, are 1-hour induration with a 15-minute snack break at the beginning of class.

  • Registration opens August 30th and closes September 16th (18th for Hoover and Webster)  
  • Classes begin the week of September 23rd and end the week of November 4th (No classes on Halloween; Make-up classes are the week of November 11th)
  • Weekly Lessons: Crazy Chemistry, Slipper Slimy Science, Bubble Fizz POP!, Halloween Science, Test Tube Adventures, Colorful Chemistry, Polymers Please!

Class Descriptions ↓

Crazy Chemistry: Who doesn’t love mixing stuff together to see what happens? In this class we learn what matter is by experimenting with ordinary kitchen items and make tons of Chemistry FUN!

Slippery, Slimy Science: Join us for this hands-on slippery, slimy science class. We will explore how matter changes physically and chemically as we create Slime and homemade Silly Putty. Get ready this is a messy one!

Halloween Science: Join us for this spooky science activity. Together we explore how matter changes physically and chemically as we create a spooky science lab and make some cool concoctions. Ooohh scary!!  

Bubble, Fizz, POP!!: We’ll learn about the amazing ways scientist are using CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) to help keep the environment clean. Then, we will perform our own discoveries with CO2. We’ll begin by making spaghetti dance, then we’ll blowing up a balloon without using a breath and lastly, make a CO2 sandwich!! 

Test Tube Adventures: If you love making potions and testing new objects then you’ll love this class. We will make a static electricity/density tube, a test tube volcano, and a bubbling blob/lava tube with the “world’s greatest test tube”. We will learn about changes in density, creating electricity and the states of matter all while having FUN!!

Colorful Chemistry: In this colorful class, you will learn about science and ink as we perform some amazing experiments. Students figure out the answer to the question, “Is black ink really black?” and create their very own beautifully designed Sharpie Pen t-shirt.

Polymers Please: Polymers are really cool! We’ll learn all about them as we experiment with three different kinds. First, we make a super bouncy ball, then we’ll watch clear spheres grow from the size of tiny pebbles to the size of marbles. To top it all off we’ll play with amazing Kinetic Sand. You won’t be able to keep your hands out of it!
