An example would be a class like "The Science of Slime" , students would learn the reason behind what causes the chemical reactions to occur to create the goopy mess they will mix together and customize for themselves. Along with the science, they will learn about the origins of slime, when it became popular, dangers of toxic chemical reactions, receive worksheets to go along with the lesson.
Art & Education classes are $15.00 and the child must be able to read and write to attend, ages for these classes will be set in the event description.
