Super Science Sunday will resume when deemed safe per COVID-19 guidelines. Meanwhile, Walder Science is committed to helping parents keep children learning and engaged during this time. Please visit our Daily STEM Learning page for robust STEM resources including science videos, math videos, riddles, and a weekly raffle!
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.
Our Early Childhood Science program, which has its own facility on site, takes place at the same time as older kid sessions, making it convenient for families/carpools to send siblings together. To be eligible for the Early Childhood program, participants must officially be enrolled in Kindergarten or Nursery in one of our community schools/programs (or be turning 4 by November 30th).
