Wednesdays at STELLARIA

for children aged 4 to 10, throughout the academic year

A special sub-program of our 'Junior Science' workshops, for children and young people whose schools take a break on Wednesday afternoons.

 

We can pick up from local  schools and provide lunch and afternoon snack .

 

And afternoons are spent doing homework, if applicable, and learning science in a consistent and fun way using the STEAM methodology *

( * Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Music, and Maths = Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Music, and Mathematics).

Each week there is a new theme to explore, with activities suitable for the age group.

NOTE: the program requires enrollment for the academic year and attendance.
