Science Adventures Classes Spring 2018

Spies and CSIs! Join us this spring for amazing problem solving Science Mysteries!  This is the class for those who love to ask “WHY?” and really want to know the answer.  Our programs are for grades K-2nd and 3rd-6th.

Grades K-2  Spies and Sleuths

This is a great “Who dun it?” adventure! Please see Parent Letter Here!

Dr. Lipid is back and boy is he mad! Our arch enemy is up to no good and we have to stop him!

We are the O.X.Y.S. (Only Excellent Youth Scientists) and we must match our wits against Dr. Lipid, Head of the Organization of M.O.R.O.N.S. (Magical Ogres Reshaping Our Natural Systems). The children will learn many exciting science principles as they learn to solve a crime scene and track Dr. Lipid!

In order to succeed at finding our spy we must unravel clues and secret messages. Each clue will help us learn a new skill to be better spy scientists. These skills include:

  • Becoming detectives by examining finger, foot, and lip prints!
  • Learning Spy Games.
  • Making Alarms to protect our headquarters-the children will learn about circuits.
  • Having fun with a periscope to spy around corners!
