This course is designed for students in grades 2-3 interested in learning general science topics at an accelerated pace. The 10-week long session will cover a 5-week unit about life science and a 5-week unit about robotics and visual programming. The topics for each lesson are approximately one to two grade levels ahead of the science taught in school. Classes are structured as a half an hour of lecture and one and a half hours of lab. The lab for each class always involves hands-on experimentation or building activities.
