Come  on a journey through space and learn all about the stars, planets, and  thousands of galaxies beyond our solar system. Students will learn about  the latest discoveries made, the scientists behind the progress we have  made, and what makes our solar system so unique.

February 20 & 21: Forensic Detectives

Can  you crack the case? In this mysterious program, students will use  forensics, chemistry, physics, and observation skills to investigate a  “crime” scene and piece together all of the evidence to solve the  mystery!

March 13 & 14*: Dive Right In

We  are diving deep into the vast field of Marine Biology! Students will  learn all about what lies in the deepest depths of the Ocean, discover  how to survive if they were stranded out in the Sea, and explore how we  can keep our beaches here in Florida clean.

April 17 & 18: Ecology, Pollution, and Conservation

Discover  the levels of complexity that form ecosystems, explore how pollution is  harming not only Earth but all species living on this planet, and learn  about how each and every one of us can make a difference in making our  planet a better place to live on.
