Fall: Food Science & Nutrition!
Familiar with the phrase "you are what you eat?” This course will explore the effect of different nutrients on the body and how a variety of food groups are vital for optimal nutrition. Students will learn all about the science of nutrition through hands-on cooking activities, fun interactive meal planning workshops and more!

Where do certain foods grow? How do people in other climates get their nutrition? Students will gain an understanding of global healthcare and explore food from different cultures around the world! It's food, science and geography! Let's cook up a healthy appetite and use science to explain how food nourishes in more ways than we think!
Winter: Mad Science Chemistry
We'll be exploring all things chemistry with hands-on experiments where we make things pop, fizz and more! What happens when you add vinegar to baking soda? Slime anyone? Leave the mess to us as our kids practice hypothesizing and experimenting with all different kinds of liquids and solids to learn about chemistry!
