    My daugter loves the Spectrum of Science class at her school. I think hands on science is so important for kids. It lets them be creative and learn at the same time. And they have so much fun doing it. Who doesn’t love making gooey things, blowing stuff up, and seeing how things work!!

    My daughter looks forward to her science fair project all year. Looking forward to some ideas being sent to me to keep our summer busy with science fun. Thanks!

    my son enjoy the Spectrum of Science summer camp a lot, the best part is to build a remote control car from beginning; also his first circurs.

    Thank you for providing my son with a fun and exciting way to experience science. He was just enrolled in this program in the last couple week and all I can say is why didn’t i sign him up sooner??? He loves his class and comes home each week and tells me everything that they learned. He even was able to use his frog & toad board for a class field trip last week. Thank you !!!!

    Spectrum of Science employs a hands-on learning approach that not only is loads of fun for kids, but also allows them to experience a sense of mastery. They don’t just learn about science….they experience the feeling of being scientists.

    We love Spectrum of Science and I’m happy it is available to supplement what the public school is unable to provide while making the learning interesting and fun at the same time. My son has participated for two years and has learned so much. He recently finished a program where he learned about radio waves and created a custom RC car. He loved it. After he brought his RC car creation home, his little brother told me he wants to go to Spectrum of Science too and he’s only 4!
