Having fun with science is an important element in Science Concentration (… besides of the periodic table of elements 🙂 )
Experimenting, Investigating, Designing, being amazed or left thoughtful, this is what science concentration is about!
Participants explore areas that are of interest to them and discover others. Sending rockets to the sky, growing bacteria and exploring DNA, making a student fly off the ground, using scientific technology and a 3D printer, dissecting a rat, exploring Lasers, magnetic field, plasma…
Come and enjoy the Experience!
This program is open to all students and the required depth of knowledge is different from one level to the next, in respect to each one’s ability and grade level.
