Thank you to those who attended a group lesson and provided me with great feedback.
I have added some new topics and have combined the two age groups. I see this as a better way to serve students in both age groups. Group lessons will be held on Tuesdays Starting at 1pm and lasting till 3pm. Lessons will be $15 per class and location will be in Prunedale at Grace Community Church on Paradise Road. This will be open to ages 5 and up.
Frog life cycle October 12th
Everyone loves frogs. In the class students will learn all about frogs and their ecosystems. What frogs do in the wild and about their life cycle. Live frogs will be attending class as well!
Pumpkin Science! October 19th
this is the season of everything pumpkin, including science experiments! Come and enjoy a variety of science experiments involving our favorite fall vegetable.
Insect hunt and learn! October 26th
Students will learn about the important role insects play in our lives and why we need them around! Students will be able to explore, collect and see how scientists create insect displays. They will have the option to recreate a display themselves as well!
What’s a cell? November 2nd
Has your student ever seen a cell under the microscope? Do they know what they are or how important they are? Join us this week and we can even take a look at your own cells under the microscope!
Bird Watching! November 9th
Students will be learning about our local native birds and maybe even some invasive species. We will learn how to spot them with our eyes and ears. Students will also learn about obstacles birds face every day in today’s world and how they can help the birds! We will have fun trying to be birds and survive a day in the modern world and will be learning how to use apps while bird watching to add value to citizen science projects around the world by using an internet enabled device right from their own backyards.
What happens after I eat my food? November 9th
Once we enjoy our delicious meal, where does our food go? Does it have a party in our stomach? Does the stomach do all the work of getting the nutrients out of our food or does it have help? Join us as we explore how our digestive system works and get hands on in an experiment to show us each step of the way.
Who is in my backyard? November 30th
Mammals are all around us in this beautiful area we live in. In this class students will learn about our local mammals and will learn how to find tracks and how to identify tracks when they do come across them and how scientists document and take molds of footprints to take home for further study.
What's out in Space? December 7th
Planets, Stars, Rockets, and what else? Let’s explore the universe around our planet and maybe even try to visit space! We will be exploring the planets and everything else up there. Then we can put our scientist minds together and see if we can get to space before SpaceX does!
Winter is here! December 14th
Holiday themed chemistry crafts and projects will get your kiddos in a festive mood! Students will engage in making chemistry inspired tree ornaments, and use their knowledge of physics to design a mini sled and race them down an icy track!
