Virtual Science Classes

After an overwhelmingly positive response to our online summer camps, we’re offering virtual science classes this school year.

Each week, students will receive a 50-minute lesson aligned to Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Each session will be packed full of interactive, hands-on STEM learning (no boring Zoom lectures). Plus, students will interact with real scientists and industry experts as well as attend exclusive live science shows.
