These labs have been chosen because of the likelihood that the materials you need are at home or are readily available. If you need a kit prepared, email us and we will put one together.  Given: that all children are different; variation in level of at home  supervision; participant ability; supplies availability;    the balance of demonstration versus hands-on is up to you. We will be providing instruction and feedback. There will be one primary instructor, with other instructors in the session watching the participants and giving them instructions and providing additional direction.
There are 2 different labs each day:
  • Experiment 1 is from 9AM to 11AM and repeated again 3PM to 5PM.
  • Experiment 2 is from 12PM to 2PM.
