Inquiry-Based Learning for Kids
Wicked Science is where kids learn through the 'play' of doing science. The most common remark heard from participants is: "I love the activities, but we are learning so much, too! That's why it's so neat!"
Hundreds of students in elementary and middle school have taken part in Wicked Science STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) activities and walked away with new vigor for looking at the world with a fresh and excited frame of mind. The "joy of discovery" is the theme but don't take our word for it - come and explore yourself!
"What's neat is that the activities are so fun but we are learning important stuff, too!"

"Thanks so much for making the Wicked Science after school program so fun for Miles! He was full of chatter (unusual for him) every Tuesday evening. We've really enjoyed watching Miles explore chemistry.
"Can I take another one of these classes?"
