Make it Messy: Science

Overview

Help kids, ages 6-12, with hands-on STREAM (Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts, and Math) activities. The program's activities use supplies that children find at home (i.e. baking soda, vinegar, etc.) so that children can re-create the experiments and activities outside the program and reinforce learning. This program is for volunteers ages 15 and up.
