With over 550 workshops in biology/life science, chemistry, earth science, engineering, forensic science, mathematics and physics, students explore a remarkable diversity of exciting topics. For example, they can learn to culture and experiment with various cell types, analyze DNA, perform forensic analyses of hair and cloth, build models of the solar system, or create wind powered cars.
Our hands-on experiments engage students’ attention and make science fun while teaching them the skills needed for a lifetime of successful learning.
