Spring 2017 After-school Elementary Science Classes

After-school sciences classes for students in grades one through five begin next week. The six-session classes run from 4 to 5:30 p.m. in the Great Lakes Research Center. Hands-on explorations are taught by Michigan Tech science and engineering students. 

This spring’s classes are:

  • Science Explorers ( grades one and two) Wednesdays, March 15 to April 26. Students will participate in fun physical science and chemistry activities, including observations and comparisons, sound vibration, frequency and pitch, characteristics of objects, forces, matter and density. They will identify mystery powders, make their own secret formulas, experiment with magnetic attraction and strength, and engineer a method for separating mixtures.

  • Science and Art (grades three through five), Thursdays, April 13 to May 18. From taking walks and looking for patterns in nature, to making musical instruments that create many different sounds, science is intertwined with art. We’ll explore how in this fun and creative class.

Cost of each class is $75 per student. You can pay by credit card by calling the Michigan Tech cashier, 7-2247, (your space is not reserved until payment is received). The Houghton school bus will drop off students at Michigan Tech at 3:45 p.m.

You can register online.
