Help your child discover science! This weekly meeting will cover a broad range of science concepts that are exciting and interesting to young learners. Explorers will learn the vocabulary word of the day, observe a teacher demonstration of the concept, interact with peers to answer questions, and then will finally make their own project that highlights the concept and reinforces their learning. A new concept is presented each week. These topics are independently taught from one another and...

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will be given feedback during discussion and while making their projects.
45 minutes per week in class, and no time outside of class.
At times, your child may need help cutting or putting their project together. These are designed for the student to build, but occasionally they need adult help. It is suggested that parents are available to assist quickly if needed. Sometimes, cardboard boxes will need to be cut in advance for students.
