SCIENCE CLUB AFTER SCHOOL AT PARK HILL
Science Club is ideal for students interested in science, math, engineering, literature, creating, exploring, analyzing data, building and working with others that have similar interests. Each semester will bring a new theme and involves a series of core concept ideas including an engineering component where students will have the opportunity to test and design a prototype. Additionally, students will practice working both independently and as a team in order to foster collaboration, communication, and social skills. Work from class will come home and photos from class will be posted on Facebook each week so parents can enjoy seeing their kids in action. We hope to see your curious kid in classes soon! *Please send a peanut and nut free snack to school with your child each week.
Meets Wednesday 3:20-4:20, in the Cafeteria, Ages 1-5th gr.
