The Science Seed

planting a love of science


Registration: Summer Camp


DESCRIPTION:  The Science Seed™ is a science enrichment program designed to develop a love of science that will last a lifetime. We strive to introduce kids to the vastness of science…science is more than potions!  The Science Seed™ has topics from all of the major disciplines.  Your students will have lessons in Physics, Biology, Nature, Chemistry, and Geology/Earth Science.

The camp day will include time to explore scientific materials, experiment, listen to stories, act out stories and scientific principles, sing science songs, choose among activities, complete a craft, snack (brought from home), and record observations in a personal science journal.

The Science Seed™ will provide a daily note to parents explaining what we learned that day and how to continue the lesson at home. To finish out the week, caregivers will be invited to a short, informal “showcase” where campers’ science-inspired craft creations will be on display and the young scientists will demonstrate some of their discoveries for invited guests. Also on the last day, campers will take home their science journals, which document their week of science learning. Through recording in their journals, the campers learn that scientists are note-takers, journalists, writers, authors, and illustrators.

This summer camp program is designed for ages 5-8 years old.
