Why Science?

 

"The whole of science is nothing more than a refinement of everyday thinking."

Albert Einstein      

 

There are three simple reasons why science is important for our kids:

  1. Kids love science because it engages their curiosity
  2. Science provides practical tools for understanding everyday life
  3. Science advances critical thinking, problem solving, and creativity in early learners

Whether a child gains an interest in becoming a doctor, lawyer, teacher, investor, or entrepreneur, developing a scientific mindset with questioning and problem solving is critical to enhancing a child's cognitive growth, logic, and reasoning.  More importantly for our youth, the loss of creativity, can in part be attributed to the rigidity of today's education curricula and lack of emphasis on early science and problem solving opportunities for our kids in school.  Kids Science Labs is going to change this and give our kids a real chance to learn science before they start to think that it's too hard.


How KSL Works

At KSL, we have a flexible program that allows parents to sign up at any time during the academic year (Sept - June) and use their classes over a period of time that works for your family.  Typically, kids enroll in classes and they register for a time slot once a week (i.e. Tuesday at 10am or Wednesday at 4pm), where they come to Kids Science Labs for a class led by our wonderful teaching faculty.  Each week there is a new class topic - We have taught over 500 classes since our inception!  For kids 3+, all classes are 75 minute, drop-off classes as long as the child is potty trained. We also offer a fantastic 60 minute parent-participation class for children 2-3. 

During the Summer we offer exceptional hands-on science camps with both half and full day programs.  Students can join us for one week, 12 weeks, or any combination in between.  If you are looking for a resource that will make STEM / STEAM fun, relevant, and get your kids genuinely excited, we are the place.

Since 2010, we have been inspiring kids through hands-on science. One of the reasons that parents love coming here is that their kids love coming every week and actively talk about what they learned when they are at home.
