REGISTRATION IS OPEN.
This program replaces the former Wacky Wednesday program as a way to live out the Center’s Mission Statement and to offer extensive science programming to students in grades 2nd through 5th. This program will be offered on Wednesday afternoons during the school year to coincide with Aurora Public School’s early out.
Seriously Science Club (SSC) is a program for the elementary students 2nd – 5th offered by Edgerton Explorit Center led by our Mad Scientists, Dan Glomski (4th and 5th) and Jessica Brock (2nd and 3rd). This program will be seriously hands-on, seriously science, and seriously FUN! Students involved in SSC will spend each session with science focused topics and activities (labs, projects, presentations, and field trips) as well as a daily snack. The program replaces the former Wacky Wednesday program as a way to live out the Center’s Mission Statement and to offer extensive science programming to students in grades 2nd through 5th. Students in this program should have acute interest in science and respect for the scientific process. Students interested in this program will need to go through an interview process to see if they would be a good fit. If your child/children is interested in this program, please contact Mary Molliconi.
