Hands-On Ultimate Science (but don’t blow up the house!)

Hands-On Ultimate Science (but don’t blow up the house!)


This is our grand finale! The final part of our learning about the Scientific Method. In this class, we will put into practice what we’ve learned about the steps to the Scientific Method and how to read and record data and students will develop their own experiment. We will also practice reading and studying past experiments (which is often put into big science examinations as children get older—like the ACT, SAT, PRAXIS, etc).

Student & Parent Reviews for Ms. Makayla:

  • I have a somewhat difficult to teach child and she loves learning from Ms. Makayla at The Thinking Kid. Her knowledge of Bugs grew tremendously in just one week of camp! Thank you so much for your time and dedication. We look forward to many more adventures with The Thinking Kid. -Jennifer, parent
