Little Time for Science

The average amount of time an elementary school student spent on science in 2012 was 2.6 hours/week, down from 2.9 in 1994. KidsSci classes can help increase that amount of time.

Declining Proficiency

Few students are proficient by their grade's science standards: only 32% are in 4th grade, which drops to 29% by 8th grade and then to 20% in 12th grade. KidsSci classes can help.

$2.5 Trillion Dollars

The U.S. would gain an extra $2.5 trillion in Gross Domestic Product between now and 2050 if its students scored at the international average on math and science tests. What if they did above average?

Ranked 21st in Science

U.S. 15-year-olds currently rank 21st in science test scores among 34 developed nations. KidsSci offers a wide variety of STEM classes to boost your students' standardized test scores.

Companies Can't Fill Jobs

The number of U.S. companies reporting difficulty in filling positions because of a lack of skills grew from 14% in 2010 to 40% in 2013. That's an incredible jump for an only 3 year period.

Fastest Growing Jobs

Since 2007 computer and math jobs have grown by 21% which is faster than any other occupational category. Fewer and fewer students have the technical and math skills to take advantage of this.

We have dozens of STEM classes for K-12 students

Physics

We offer a broad variety of physics related classes covering topics ranging from Newton's Laws of Motion to Fluids & Hydraulics, Light & Optics, Sound, Properties of Air, Matter & Thermodynamics, and Classical Mechanics.

Electronics

Students learn about basic electronics components and circuit theory and start out with simple projects to light and flash LED's to ultimately building their own autonomous robots from scratch (we don't do kits).

Electricity

These classes teach children the theory of electricity but more importantly we get to make a lot of different kinds of small lightning bolts and use electrostatics to magically levitate and move objects.

Magnetism

In our magnetism classes students get to learn how magnetism works, make electromagnets & compasses, magnetically levitate objects, and make magnetically powered motors.

Microbiology

In our microbiology classes we get SMALL... We take samples of cells and bacteria in our immediate environment and investigate the results as well as look at microscopic slides of a variety of specimens. We also break down the DNA of several substances which is an excellent introduction to anyone who is a fan of CSI science.

Mathematics

These aren't your typical after school math classes, we teach children dozens of math tricks to show them the fun side of math. They learn how to trick people into thinking they're psychic by using basic algebra, how to do speed math and math the easy way, and we also throw in some awesome card tricks they are sworn to secrecy to never reveal how the trick is done.

Chemistry

Our chemistry classes teach children about atoms, , chemicals, acids, bases, and molecules, and we have fun rearranging those molecules in a variety of extreme ways (fully controlled and supervised, of course ;-)

Engineering

Being engineers ourselves this is a topic very near and dear to our hearts. Our engineering classes and activities show kids the fun side of engineering and challenge them to creatively solve a variety of problems like designing a load bearing column effectively and economically and safely delivering a payload without breaking.

Team Building

All of our programs and activities emphasize team building, teamwork, and group collaboration. We do many team building exercises to bring even the most shy child out of his or her "shell".

We Care

We are passionate about STEM education & believe educating the next generation of engineers & scientists should be one of this country's highest priorities. And our enthusiasm is contagious - sign up for one of our classes today and see for yourself!

Wide Variety of STEM Classes

We offer classes in physics, electronics, electricity, magnetism, microbiology, mathematics, chemistry, engineering, & team building. There's something for everybody and we're adding new classes every day.
