The Art in Science - Astronomy & Meteorology
PUBLISHED

The Art in Science is a unique program developed by a scientist and artist to enrich children in various scientific concepts. In the program, the kids learn various science topics with hands on activities that turn into interesting artworks pleasing to the eye and intriguing to the mind.

In OUR SOLAR SYSTEM we will learn about our sun and the planets in our solar system as well as comets, asteroid and astronauts. In every class we will have a fun hands on activity that will help us understand our universe.

TO INFINITY AND BEYOND will take us far far away to explore and discover the wonders of out of space. We will learn about the moon and its phases, will study eclipses, will visit other galaxies and the Hubble telescope and will build a spacecraft. 

How's The Weather? -Meteorology – The science that deals with the phenomena of the atmosphere, especially weather and weather conditions. Want to make a tornado in a jar? Investigate clouds, fog and rainbows? Measure the wind speed? This session is for you! In this class we will review different weather conditions and create beautiful and fascinating weather projects.

The Art in Science is a unique program developed by a scientist and artist to enrich children in various scientific concepts. In the program, the kids learn various science topics with hands on activities that turn into interesting artworks pleasing to the eye and intriguing to the mind.

In Biology we will have 3 sessions each session is focused on a different aspect of life science:

Session I - MICROBES - we will learn about five types of micro-organisms that belongs to this family. Every lesson will be dedicated to a different group: Viruses, Bacteria, Fungi, Protozoa and Algae.

Session II  - FOOD CHAIN - we will learn how organisms interact , discuss the relationship between producers, consumers and decomposes, and create our own food chain projects.

Session III - BIOMES - is an introduction to Ecology. In this class students will be exposed to the different organism communities around the world and the relationship between plants, animals and the environment.

There are 5 classes in every session. Each slass is stand-alone and is offered at 12:30 pm PST  and 3:30 pm PST.

Classes starts on Sept 2, 2020.
