Learning with Hands-On Activities

PhotosFor 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 activies which capture children's natural curiosity, stimulate their interest in science and teach them important science topics along with critical thinking skills.

It's unique!
Our unique Science Club program is designed to meet the needs of children in grades K-6. ClubScientific 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 ClubScientific 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.

ClubScientific believes in parental involvement. In every ClubScientific class, your child will receive a lesson card describing the lesson with some suggestions for extending the learning experience at home. After each semester session, students will receive a science medal to recognize their Scientific achievements.

Each science enrichment SEMESTER lasts for fifteen classes(approximately fifteen weeks). Classes meet once a week for approximately 60 minutes. Class size is 8-10 students, per instructor, with the cost of $75 fee a week + $25 materials fee every five weeks, per student per Semester.

2014-2015 After-School Program Semester Descriptions

Fall Semester

Fourteen projects starting August, 2014

Solving Mysteries
Everyone loves a good mystery! Students will solve the mystery of some of their favorite snacks, including ice cream and soda. And, just in time for Halloween, students will discover the science behind movie effects, as well as the secrets of talking bones and how science is used to solve crimes.

Spring Semester

Fourteen projects starting January, 2015

Nature AlwaysFinds a Way
Did you know that our oceans house millions of different species of which many have not yet been discovered? Or that there are 914 species of birds in the U.S.? How about that the U.S. alone produces 243 million tons of garbage each year? In this session, students will learn about our wonderful world of creatures and how we can affect and can protect their environment.

2014-2015 After School Program Session Descriptions

Fall Semester will feature:

The Science of Ice Cream, Soda Pop and Candy: Ever wonder why ice cream never gets really hard in the freezer or what put the pop in soda? Here’s your chance to find out! We will be investigating the science behind a few of our favorite snacks. Science has never tasted so good!

Spooky Science: Many of the spooky things we see in the movies are really just good science. Just in time for Halloween, we will make slime, play with scary sound effects, and discover how our bodies react when we are scared. Students will also create some cool glow in the dark crystals.

Partners in Crime: Join us for the growing science of talking bones (forensics). Students learn about the link between the criminal and the crime as they solve the case of the missing cookies! Fingerprinting, powder identification, and rainbow chromatography are just a few of our forensic explorations.

Spring Semester will feature:

Leagues Under the Sea: Did you know that there is a whole area of the ocean that hasn’t been explored yet? Or that the ocean is a vast ecosystem full of strange and unusual creatures? We will be discovering how an octopus swims, learn about the unusual ocean creatures that have just been discovered, and study how the ocean moves. You will never think of eating a shrimp in the same way again!

Going Green: Everyone wants to take good care of our Earth. In Going Green, we will learn how you can help! We will identify bird species found around your home. We will also discover the power of our sun as we make sun prints. Creating your own reusable lunch bag and making your own paper will turn you into a real environmental expert!

Creepy Crawlies: Let’s go on a bug hunt! Students learn about the fascinating, and sometimes creepy, world of insects. This session begins as we create our own bug hunting kit while learning some bug lingo. As the session continues, several bugs are featured as we explore their world. We will observe a real praying mantis egg sac and watch as the “baby bugs” emerge.
