Science Enrichment Programs

 
We offer innovative, interactive, hands-on science programming that effectively enhances the science curriculum however, it's been a little challenging this year since all enrichment programs have been virtual so far.  But we have been able to offer a wide and interesting range of programs.
 
Biology, Chemistry, and Physics are all covered by programs ranging from learning about animals in their natural habitats to weather to light and sound and how they work.
