AKA Science …Because All Kids Are Scientists!

AKA Science (All Kids Are Scientists) is a fun, hands-on science program for students in kindergarten through 6th grade. Kids participate in experiments that nurture their curiosity and help them explore the world around them.

AKA Science uses inquiry-based activities to get kids excited about learning. In the past school year, AKA Science offered more than 200 classes and 15 library workshops that served approximately 2,000 kids in northwest Oregon.

The AKA Science package includes: field-tested curriculum, interactive instructor training, and a kit full of supplies to bring the curriculum to life. The program is grounded in state and national standards and best practices for after school science programs. This model has made the program successful in a wide variety of school and community settings.

The AKA Science curriculum rotates on a 3-year cycle, with 9 topics that include physics, chemistry, biology, earth science, and forensic science. Students get to take home many of the supplies they use in class, reinforcing what they’ve learned by sharing experiments with family and friends.
