Calendar Next available session starts Jul 25, 2022 at 9 am

Jr. Physicians Academy - Explore all of the cells, organs, muscles, and bones that make up YOU! Put yourself together from the inside out, while learning about all the systems that make your body tick! Get microscopic while making a model cell, create a stethoscope to hear your heartbeat, and inflate model lungs that work just like yours! Get a little sticky while making “Mad Mucus” and a mashed potato brain!

Radical Reactions & Detective Science - Become a skilled science sleuth while investigating the role of chemistry at the scene of a crime! Learn about chemical reactions as you grow crystals. We will use dental alginate to make fabulous finger molds and the chemistry continues as we create sidewalk chalk from scratch, design chromatography bandanas to take home, and even make your very own ice cream!

For ages 8-12.
