november programs

We are hosting two programs in November 2021: Intro to Biochemistry for grades 3-4 and Mathematical Graphing for 5-6.

 

Each workshop consists of lessons and hands-on activities (i.e. science experiments) for students to participate in. As a result, students are required to provide their own materials that will be used during the workshops.

 

Below is more information about each program. You may find the required materials for each workshop below as well.
