At Storefront Science, we value the process of science. We encourage children to direct their own learning by asking questions, designing experiments, collecting data and engineering solutions. Our curricula — which are tied to National Science standards — are open-ended to allow for deep exploration.
All of our programs integrate a variety of science disciplines. Rather than studying biology, kids can take a class called “Show Some Backbone” and learn about invertebrates and vertebrates. Interested in genetics? Check out “Whose Genes are You Wearing?”. And physics fans will love “Darn Tootin’ Newton” or “Let There Be Light!”.
After-school clubs are designed for children grades K-5. To give youngsters a head start on their path to science literacy, StoSci offers an Early Explorers program for children ages 2, 3 and 4. Each summer, we offer interactive and interdisciplinary science camps at Storefront Science, with both half- and full-day options. Topics for summer 2013 include: “Tinker Time,” “Amazing Animals,” “The Periodic Table,” “The Mighty George Washington Bridge,” “Rise Robots Rise” and “Water Water Everywhere.” Camps run July 22 through August 30.
In addition to clubs and camps, Storefront Science offers home-school and pre-school programs, school field trips (Science Scavenger Hunt), Science Birthday Parties, Open/Drop-Off Exploration on weekends and special events for the community.
