• SWSciencesploration01
      Our children learn to observe, infer and experiment through “hands-on” activities
  • SWSciencesploration02
      Our curriculum is based on “inquiry” where students gain “minds-on” experiences
  • SWSciencesploration03
      Our students are encouraged to describe objects and events, ask questions, construct explanations, and communicate their ideas to others
  • SWSciencesploration04
      Our learners develop their understanding of science by combining scientific knowledge with reasoning and thinking skills

  A Tree is a Habitat Too! Earth Cares What's the Matter with Matter?  
 
Life Science and Earth Science
Who lives in a tree? Every animal needs a home for warmth and shelter. Find out why some trees are great places for various animals to live. Investigate the basic needs of tree-residing animals and how these needs are provided for within their environment. Prepare for some tree-mendous stuff!

   
Earth Science and Chemistry
What contributes to air, water and land pollution? What is the best way to keep our environment clean? Find out the difference between materials that can or cannot be recycled. Let’s interact with our natural world and help preserve it. Is that eco-friendly?
Physics and Chemistry
Did you know that matter is anything that has mass and occupies space? Experiment with different substances to test the properties of materials. Make “sandwich” wood, compare fiber and experiment with mass. It’s only a matter of science!

Physics
Did you know that not only your ears can “hear” sound? Catch sounds with your ears and your fingers. Create your own kazoo, super listener earphones and musical instruments. Figure out how to make strings sing. What would sound look like if you could see it?
Life Science and Physics
Did you know that on average, a hen lays over 300 eggs per year? Discover how a diversity of animals with feathers, scales and slippery skin begin their lives in these little containers. Investigate how turtles, fish and birds lay their eggs and care for them. From deep in the sea to underground, eggs are all around!
 
   
                     
  Bubble Festival It's a Colorful Day Rock On  
 
Physics and Chemistry
How many scientists can blow into the same bubble? Can you make a bubble look like a cube or one with straight sides? How do you find the rainbow in a bubble? Predict when a bubble will pop. Investigate the appearance of things when looking through a bubble. Come join us in this bubble-licious festivity!

Chemistry and Physics
Did you know that acids can change the color of flowers? Find out how to paint your world with natural pigments. Investigate tie dyes and delve into the realm of rainbows. See how all colors can fade to white. Let’s paint with chemistry.
Earth Science
Did you know that some rocks can grow on mountains under the sea? Explore the variety of rocks and their purposes in our world. Experience how sandstone stands up through various weathering techniques. What’s the difference between sand, gravel, and pebbles? Let’s rock to the groove!
 
 
 
                     
  Animals 2X2 A Hard-Hatting World Wonders of Chemistry  
 
Life Science
Have you ever petted a guinea pig, fed a bird, or seen a snake slither? Find out how animals move and what they like to eat. Discover why the kind of skin animals wear determines how they protect themselves and stay warm. Are you surprised to know that some furry animals can fly whereas some feathered ones cannot?

Physics
Do you know which is stronger: beam style or arch style bridges? Build the craziest designed bridge using only straws and paper clips. Make “cement” shakes and marshmallow buildings. Let’s put on our thinking hats and figure out how the design affects the strength of the bridge.
Chemistry
Sharpen your brains and put on your thinking hat. Explore mysterious mixtures, underwater explosions and appealing apples. Bake Apple Crumble and create a secret painting for your best friend. Discover, invent, experiment and begin a voyage of scientific fun.
