ages nine to twelve

While we provide free live virtual workshops for students, we also publish workshop curricula for families or teachers to use for their students. To ensure that our curriculum is appropriately tailored to each student’s learning level, we have developed and divided our workshops based on age. Our lessons cover topics ranging from astronomy to environmentalism!
