This workshop offers simple, thought-provoking science experiments and reading literature. Students will conduct basic experiments and then chronicle their findings and "science recipes" in a LapBook they can take home at the end of the six weeks. 

A new topic is introduced each week in one of the following areas: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Meteorology, Earth Science or Engineering.   Six reading selections are paired with six corresponding science activities.
