Hands-on learning. Real life connections that make science fun. Grades 4-12.
From building model boats or underwater ROVs, students exploring how things in their world really work. What's in the control box that runs games? How can a machine make a floating object sink or a car move? Why can electricity be made from different sources, like wind, solar and fossil fuels?
Now the fun learning really begins!
