Learning with Hands-On Activities
For years educators have stressed that students learn better "by doing" - especially in the sciences. Students of all ages learn more science-content and skills when they engage in investigation and discovery using everyday materials and the basic equipment of science.
How can this learning take place?
Our carefully designed inquiry centered lessons that involve children with hands-on activities which capture children's natural curiosity, stimulate their interest in science and teach them important science topics along with critical thinking skills.
Our unique Science Club program is designed to meet the needs of children in grades K-6. Club Scientific lessons help engage students in observation, measurement, identification of properties, and experimentation involving life, earth and physical science concepts. The units are rigorously researched by science educators with the help of teachers and children. The results are lessons that students can enjoy and genuinely learn from. Science was never this much fun!
Dozens of program topics!
Rocketry, Chemistry, Paleontology, Forensics, Weather, Flight, Technology and many other disciplines of science. All Club Scientific lessons are designed to help with the development of the following scientific process skills: observing, classifying, comparing, measuring, critical thinking, predicting, hypothesizing, sequencing and experimentation.
Club Scientific believes in parental involvement. Parent Guides are on our website with at home activities for your scientist!
There are science enrichment sessions that last for the entire school year. Classes can meet once or twice a week for 1-2 hours depending on the school and the parent's needs.
Sample After-School Program
Fall Semester-Biological Brainics
Ever wonder what makes a kangaroo a kangaroo? Is it that big tail? Animal Instincts will explore animal adaptations. We will learn how animals survive in their habitats and how animals work together.
A chemistry lab is a good place to be! In Chemistry Chaos we will make things pop, change color, erupt and bubble. It is all science!
In Something’s Fishy we will unravel some of the mysteries of the deep! Exploring the elusive Giant Squid and whale migration patterns will make the mysteries not so mysterious. We will also see how tsunamis are formed and why they are so dangerous. Get your mental diving gear ready to join us!
Spring Semester-Scientific Superstars
Have you ever heard the saying “necessity is the motherhood of invention?” During Invention Convention we will discover how some of the things we use every day came about. Did you know that several of our modern conveniences were invented by NASA scientists for the space program? We will explore how something goes from a rocket ship to your home!
The Great Scientists!
The great scientists of the past all had one thing in common. They were inspired! During these weeks we will be inspired ourselves as we discover several great scientists and recreate some of their greatest experiments.
Have you ever thought about how a robot works? What exactly is a robot? In Robot Rumble we will start by learning how robots “think” and continue on until we create a robot of our own!
