The Science Seed - The Science Seed - $154
Children are natural scientists; curious and full of the desire to observe and explore. Preschool and early elementary is the perfect time to start a lifelong love of science by introducing students to basic science concepts. The Science Seed™ teaches geology/earth science, chemistry, biology/nature, physics, and nutrition in fun, interactive and age-appropriate ways. Our goal is for students to understand the breadth of science and therefore each session contains lessons from the different disciplines. In addition, we introduce students to the fact that scientists are also note-takers, data recorders, writers and authors by creating a journal of the session…a memento they will bring home on the last day of class. Students will bring home from each class a note to the parents informing you of what was explored in class and how to continue the lesson at home. Topics will be different for each session offered at this school for the year. For information on the specific topics taught this session, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
