Open to students from any school.
Ready to catch a thief or spy? In our Crime Science club, your sleuths will learn about the scientific method, biology and chemistry while conducting basic science experiments to figure out whodunit in the crime story of the week. We’ll lift fingerprints, gaze through microscopes to analyze soil samples and cast impressions of suspected murder weapons. We'll also learn about cryptography when we experiment with invisible ink and code breaking. Optional field trip to the International Spy Museum. The cost of this field trip is not included in tuition.
Each class requires one parent aide whose child receives free tuition (but must still pay the pre-registration fee). Parent aides must be engaged and effective during class and must attend every class or find a sub for classes s/he expects to miss. If you would like to be considered for the parent aide position, please check the appropriate box on the registration form.
For students grades 2-5 from any school.
