october programs

We are hosting two programs in October 2020: Introduction to Environmental Science (Grades 3-4) and Introduction to Chemistry (Grades 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.
