Hands-on Science

--on climate change and global warming solutions.
Fun, involving,
sound science.
Kids have a blast,
are eager to learn;
while teachers and schools
do beautifully on the
state standards
with our help.

Rigorously vetted for science and education content.

Others may not place much value in you;
but we feel your school, your kids deserve
the best in education.

We do the hands-on
science for the
California Academy of
Sciences in their
K12 teacher trainings on
climate change
and energy.
