Science Club

Science Club participants explore material science, chemistry, engineering, robotics, biology, physics, and cryptology.

  • Who:  4th grade students
  • When:  Fridays after school from 2:15 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
  • Where:  LC art room

Participants build and launch rockets, dissect frogs, conduct chemistry experiments, practice first aid, create and program LEGO® robots, and take a field trip to the planetarium. Professionals from the community host sessions, and high school students help out. Introducing elementary students to science encourages them to explore their world and understand that science is all around them.

Space is limited to 24 students. Parents complete a permission form, which includes a student-written description of why they want to be in Science Club. Open slots are divided equally among the fourth-grade classrooms.
