Science Club is designed to get students of all ages excited about Science and let them get their hands dirty while learning a few things along the way.  Each month we will be diving into a different area of Science, doing experiments, watching demonstrations and learning how the world around us works.  We will also be learning about how we can take care of the world around us for future generations.

Science Club is open to ALL grades, K-8.  We will meet on Thursdays in the Science Lab.  Science Club will begin immediately after school and end at 4:30pm.  Pick up will be in the front bus loop.  Snack will not be provided but the students are welcome to bring their own to have before we begin work on our experiments.  The cost of the club is $25 daily and there is a discount if you sign up for the entire month.  Ideally preregistration helps us get a count on supplies but drop-ins are always accepted.
