Walder Science Center

Super Science Sunday!!

DESCRIPTION: Super Science Sunday invites students each week in grades N-6 to participate in the best science program around!  Each Sunday, for an hour and 15 minutes, students participate in 3 to 5 fun hands-on experiments and activities to explore the science topic of the week in our real science lab!  Activities and curriculum are designed at the age and level appropriate for each group, often allowing them to take home samples of their work!  We believe education is fun and exciting when designed properly.  Our program works to help kids develop an appreciation of the study of science, which we hope will help them take seriously and make the most of the science they learn in school.

Below you will find a list of the sessions offered, costs, sign up instructions, and a list of program dates for the whole year (at the very bottom).

Our new kindergarten/nursery programs, which have their own facility on site, take place at the same time as older kid sessions, making it convenient for families/carpools to send siblings together.  To be eligible for the Kindergarten/Nursery program, participants must officially be enrolled in Kindergarten or Nursery in one of our community schools/programs (or be turning 4 by November 30th).   

LOCATION: 3050 W. Touhy Ave, in the Albany wing of Cong. Adas Yeshurun.

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