August 18: Marine Biologist
Get a clue about the Big Blue! Learn about Earth’s largest ecosystem--from the role it plays in our world and everyday life to the animals that call it home.
September 15: Chemist
Let’s get chemical! This month we'll discover some of the different elements that make up our universe and experiment to see what they are really capable of.
October 20: Paleontologist
These creatures once walked on the same ground we do, and even though they are long gone, they left behind clues to what life was once like on planet Earth. We'll also figure out how scientists know so much about animals they’ve never actually seen.
November 17: Zoologist
Mammals, Reptiles, Birds, Fish, and more! Our planet is home to a wide variety of animals, so let's discover their similarities and differences while meeting some real life examples of them, too!
December 15: Mechanical Engineer
It’s GO time! Let’s learn all about cars, boats, planes and more. Where do you think the machines that move us around get their get up and GO?
January 19: Robotic Engineer
What’s a robot, and how can we get them to do all our work for us? Get your wheels turning while you learn to program and play with our resident robot collection.
February 16: Microbiologist
Microorganisms are all around us, but they are too small to be seen with our eyes alone. If they’re so small then why are they a big deal? We’re going to zoom in and find out!
March 9*: Astronaut
Leave Earth and spend a day among the stars. Let’s explore outer space, everything in it, and see how scientists discovered worlds beyond our own. Don’t space out, we have too much to learn!
April 20: Geologist
Science Rocks! Especially the science OF rocks. Learn about the different kinds of rocks and how to identify them as you gain a new appreciation for the ground below your feet.
May 18: Acoustic Technologist
Our ears are responsible for one of our most important senses...or so I hear. Let’s make some noise for this week's lesson as we learn about different sounds, how they are produced and processed.
