Science Saturdays are a time to explore, discover and learn for elementary age children grades 3 to 5. Each month we investigate the world around us using fun hands-on experiments. Each session is designed to teach age-appropriate concepts in science, technology, engineering and math. Science Educator, Michelle Van Voorhis leads the activities. Sessions run from 10:30 am – 12 Noon.

Science Saturdays are funded through a FY2019 LSTA Grant Anytime STEM Learning.
