After School Science

Description: Stimulate your creativity each week, with the best educational hands-on experiments and activities.  Our sessions will delve into the topic of the brain, eyes, senses, and how they are all connected! Stop by for 1 to 1.5 hours between 4:30 & 6:30pm Mondays and Wednesdays.

The boys program is located in the Walder Science Center Building, and the girls program is located in the Adas Yeshurun building (down the stairs from the main entrance).

Cost: the cost for each child is $10 per individual session, $60 for 8 sessions, or $100 for 16 sessions.  Siblings join for half price.  The program is located at 3050 W. Touhy Ave.

Sign up: Preregistration is required so that we can be prepared (with staff and supplies) for the right amount of students.  You can sign up your children over the phone at 773-649-5360 or at programs@walderlab.org.  We can answer any of your questions as well upon contact.
