Virtual After-School Science!


Our After-School Science Enrichment program begins the end of September and goes throughout the school year, ending in May. This year the setting and logistics of our program will be based on the phase of the MI Safe Schools Plan (outlined by Governor Whitmer and the COVID-19 Task Force) your school district is in. Our first session will be taught virtually using Zoom. Once South East Michigan is in phase 5 of re-opening we will be back teaching awesome experiments in your school! We have four 7-week sessions planned for this school year that are fun and engaging, each having a unique theme.

SESSION 1: Science Explorers, VIRTUAL CLASSES! The week of September 29th – the week of November 9th, Description: Students explore the many facets of Science in this Seven-Week Session of virtual classes! We begin by discussing germs, bacteria, viruses and learn how to properly wash our hands and wear a mask. We investigate sound, light & color, explore the scientific explanation of a few magic tricks, celebrate Halloween with spooky science experiments and much more!

SESSION 2: Crazy Chemistry,  November 30th – Jan 29th (make-up week Feb. 1st-5th) Description: Are you ready to explore the world of Chemistry with hands-on experiments?
