LSNC Afterschool Programs

LSNC Afterschool Programs

Available for grades 1-5

Looking to extend a school day or add a science component to your existing afterschool programs? Leslie Science & Nature Center can take care of the planning and programming!

By focusing on key concepts, LSNC's educators are able to create exciting, innovative, and engaging programs that allow students hands-on experience with scientific concepts. We have seen first hand how this type of kinesthetic engagement with subjects allows a deeper understanding of scientific principles and reinforces teaching done in a classroom setting. The concepts we cover create a base for understanding for how our world works, and we work in conjunction with you and your school to establish a solid science foundation for each student.

We offer a variety of program themes for you to choose from, or we can work with you to create a program tailored to your needs! Each program is one hour long, and themes may include live animal presentations, experiments, games, crafts, and other hands-on learning activities.

Available during the school year.
