Description

Class Experience

Learners will improve their understanding of various scientific facts with each experiment we complete. In class, concepts are not discussed too far in-depth, leaving class light and airy. It is important for learners to have fun, while we mix in a few terms and comprehension as different ingredients can cause similar reactions, etc.
