AKA Science (All Kids Are Scientists) is a fun, hands-on science program for students in grades K-6. A different topic is offered during most school quarters (fall, winter & spring), and 9 total topics rotate on a 3-year cycle. For each topic, there’s a version for students in grades K-3 and a version for students in grades 4-6.
• Curriculum (structured as eight 1-hour lessons, with some flexibility to be extended or condensed)
• A full kit of supplies for up to 15 students (except water and scissors, which each site provides), and
• Training of a Class Leader to facilitate the class. Each site recruits, screens, selects, and supervises its own Class Leader. Class Leaders don’t need a background in science, but prior experience working with school-aged children is recommended.
