This sampler is geared toward rising 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders. The week is divided into modules: rocketry, chemistry, drone clinic & professional gyroscope demonstration, microscope lab, structures, astronomy, magnetism, simple machines, engineering, and experimentation. There are plenty of outdoor activities, games, and challenges, and the freedom to explore. At the end of the week, we stage a mini science fair so your child can share what they’ve discovered.
Majoring in Biomedical Engineering at Case Western Reserve University
While Brett is currently studying biomedical engineering and has taken advanced physics courses, he has been fascinated by weather and science since middle school. Last summer he teamed up with Nicole Rosenfeld for the Sampler. They hosted marine scientist, Lindsay Hirt in a live broadcast from the seacoast. We can hardly wait to see what Brett has in store for us next summer!
All the Super Science Sampler activities are designed to expand your child’s knowledge and skills, all while having fun and making new friends. Many modules have an outdoor component, taking advantage of the majestic open spaces and beautiful landscape of Lasell University. Mid-morning and afternoon we take a 20-minute recess and get outside for some good old fashioned play time. Games, challenges and the freedom to explore add to the fun!
Insatiable curiosity—it comes naturally to a young child. The idea is to give your child the freedom to try things out and have fun! Based on a self-determination theory in education, children “own the science.” They will hone their ability to observe, wonder, and ask questions. Every day brings something new, engaging your young one and keeping things active. Doing. Exploring. Tinkering. Building. Experimenting. Making new friends and having fun!
