Observe and Question!
Learning with Hands-On Activities!
For years educators have stressed that students learn better “by doing” – especially in the sciences. Students of all ages learn more science-content and skills when they engage in investigation and discovery using everyday materials and the basic equipment of science. Inquiry based learning builds critical thinking skills which are important to decision making in all aspects of our children’s lives. Our carefully designed inquiry centered lessons capture children’s natural curiosity and help engage them in observation, measurement, identification of properties, and experimentation involving life, earth, environmental and physical science concepts. In doing so, they learn not only important science topics but the ability to think critically in the world around them.
Exciting program topics!
Environmental Science, Rocketry, Chemistry, Paleontology, Forensics, Culinary Science, Oceanography, Biology, Medicine, Technology and many other disciplines of science. All Terrific Scientific lessons are designed to help with the development of the following scientific process skills: observing, classifying, comparing, measuring, critical thinking, predicting, hypothesizing, sequencing and experimentation.
For elementary school students, Terrific Scientific’s after school enrichment program consists of weekly one hour sessions that last for 8-12 weeks (depending on location). Classes are conveniently held on your child’s school campus, and start immediately after school ends.
