Grades K-1:  Surviving the Wild -  What does it take to keep an animal alive in the wild? You will be challenged to survive in certain environments like animals have to do. Will you be able to find food, water, and shelter? Can you survive?

Grades 2 - 3 Fight or Flight -  Paper airplanes provide an example of forces acting upon an object during flight. Join us to learn about forces and physics while creating your own paper airplane to test to see which will fly the longest.

Grades 4 - 6:  Wildfire:  Not in my backyard! - Lately, we have been hearing a lot about wildfires, but have you ever wondered what causes them? Together we will be diving into the smoke and putting out our own flames.
