The course curriculum encourages children to delve into STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) disciplines through engaging experiments and investigations, from rocket launches to rock sample studies.
EXTREME Science instructor, Robert Roach, an educator with more than 30 years of experience teaching science, will guide participants through the areas of chemistry, physics, geology and life sciences.
