K – 2nd Grade Class: Amazing Animals – Invertebrates
What do jellies, insects, arachnids, sea sponges, and snails have in common? They are invertebrates!

They may be squishy, stingy, and look strange, but they are some of the most interesting animals on earth.
3rd – 6th Grade Class: Power of Water
Water – we drink it, we swim in it, and it is essential for life, but did you know it is one of the most destructive forces on earth? Come enjoy learning about the force of water and the changes it makes on the Earth’s crust by performing scientific experiments and participating in hands-on activities.
7th – 12th Grade Class: 1 + 1 = 1 Meiosis!
When does 1 + 1 = 1? When we’re talking about meiosis! Come and observe reptiles and amphibians up close and identify some of their unique genes and traits. Figure out why you may have inherited certain traits, but not others from your parents and model meiosis to create your own “Spud Bud” to take home!
