Super Science Sunday!!

Super Science Sunday is a great opportunity for kids in grades 1-6 to fuse fun and learning.  Come join us every week in our real laboratory to participate in exciting and educational science experiments.  Participants are carefully divided into age appropriate groups at each session.  We are located at 3050 W. Touhy Ave, in the Albany wing of Cong. Adas Yeshurun.  

Session Times:
Kindergarten/Nursery:  10:15am-11:30am  NEW!*
Girls Grades 1-6:  10:15am-11:30am
Boys Grades 4-6:  1:45pm-3:00pm (early drop off available at 1:30pm)
Boys Grades 1-3:  3:30pm-4:45pm

Registration and payment in advance is required so that we can make sure to prepare enough materials and staff for each session.  Cancellations must be done by the Wednesday before any session in order to get a refund or use the credit toward a future program.  Those who try to sign up at the door will be taken if space and materials are still available at the walk-in rate of $13.

Topics for the Winter 2017-18 Session include:

  • Science of Sound
  • Rain and Snow
  • Adaptions
  • Radio Science
  • Science of Motion
  • Physics of Flight
  • Genetics
  • Earthquakes

*We are now offering a new program to accommodate Kindergarten and Nursery scientists!  In the past, children of this age were not mature enough, didn't have the necessary attention span, and lacked needed motor skills to safely be in our lab.  Now we have designed a program more suited to help these youngsters be able to participate at the appropriate level in science!    

We had many camps join us this summer for a half day science field trip, and many kids were interested in participating in more of our science programs throughout the year.  Super Science Sunday is a great opportunity for them to do so!

Plan ahead...
Our 7 Spring Sessions for 2018 will be Apr 15, 22, 29, May 6, 27, Jun 3, 10.
