FALL / WINTER 2019-2020

Science Detective Academy!!

This September, by popular demand, we are bringing back Kids Talk Science Detective Academy!

 

During 17 classes, the kids will learn and test several forensic science techniques and, once they've learned the ropes, together they'll solve a very mysterious paleontological crime that remained unsolved for over a hundred years. And there's more.

After they find the culprit (or culprits), they will make a movie to explain how they solved the case!

Through activities, experiments and conversations, we'll learn: 

How to collect and preserve evidence from a crime scene;

O How to study and interpret fingerprints, bloodstains, hair, footprints, DNA, and more;   

O How to put all the information together to solve a crime!

If you are ready, register now!

If you have any questions, read more down below or contact us!

About the Program
 
O  How do we teach at KTS?

Each session, we tackle a different science topic through hands-on activities, demonstrations, experiments, and videos. Then the kids find the most fun way of explaining it to the world.

In Kids Talk Science, storytelling takes center stage. There’s a role for everybody and room for every personality.

 

To learn more, watch the kids' productions! And check out our blog to see what we do class by class.

   

O  Who is it for?  ​

Kids Talk Science is open to children 7 and up who are interested in science and storytelling in any of its forms. We have two age groups: 7-9 and 9-11 year olds. No prior science knowledge is necessary. Check our schedule for different class options.

 

 When does it run?  ​

Classes run three times a week from 3:00 to 5:00 pm. Kids have snacks and play from 3:00 to 3:30 pm and then do activities until 5:00 pm. An extra hour is available (until 6:00 pm) at a cost of $10 per class. Check out our schedule to find a class that suits you.

O  What do we provide?

Light, healthy snacks and water, plus some extra snacks when there's an activity related to food (which happens often!) But ravenous kids or kids with dietary restrictions should bring their own food.
