Science is a fantastic way to answer the why, what, when and how about the world around us. This class will introduce science to children in a creative, fun and experiential way. In the Montessori classroom, your child is exposed to botany, zoology, astronomy and physics, but Got Science will allow your scientist to go further.
We’ll start the first part of our class by learning about simple chemistry (what is it: liquid, solid, gas) and answer questions like ‘what happens when molecules react to one another?’ This will open up many areas for safe experiments your child can learn, then bring home to teach you. We will spend a portion of this class making potions for art and mixing messy mad science recipes. In addition, we will practice some fun STEM activities that encourage us to work together as a team, such as the foil and pipe cleaner challenge that’s sure to get those brain gears turning.
