What We Do

We spend time every week with elementary school kids doing fun, hands-on science activities. You don't have to be a science genius to help out—we'll give you a copy of the lesson and the basic facts and information. We want kids to realize that (1) they are capable of learning science, (2) science is fun, and (3) science is everywhere (in the food they eat, the weather, etc.) But, most importantly, we are spending time with the kids—paying attention to them, caring about them, and giving them good role models to look up to. As crazy as it can get, spending an hour each week making a mess is actually quite a good stress reliever!
