Science Club provides an opportunity for students in grades 3-4 to participate in an after-school Science Club. The Science Club is designed to be an adventure for the students and a learning opportunity for a classroom teacher. Activities are aligned with the Science and Engineering Practices as outlined in the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).

As part of their hands-on investigations, students practice constructing explanations, collaborating with others, and communicating findings.
