TRADITIONAL AFTERSCHOOL PROGRAMS:
Traditional Afterschool programs last for 30-minutes and can accommodate as many 30-minute workshops as necessary to meet the needs of your school. This format is perfect for large schools or organizations/schools that offer afterschool programs at multiple sites such as the YMCA.
Sample Afterschool Programs Include:
Get ready to face disaster like you’ve never seen before. Erupt volcanoes and make a twirling hurricane. Find out the scoop on why these events happen and what we can do to protect ourselves from these devastating disasters.
Discover how cool plants really are. Build your very own greenhouse, see an embryo, and get all the “seedy” facts.
Zoom to the Moon©
Discover how the moon orbits the earth and how the earth and other planets orbit the sun. Discover centripetal force and make a Lunar Wheel!
Stimulate children's imagination & curiosity for science!
Afterschool Enrichment Programs
AS Enrichment's meet for 1-hour each week over an 8-12 week period and can accommodate any facility or number of children.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Can I pay for a Science Made Fun Afterschool Programs with grant dollars?
A: Yes. Many Science Made Fun programs have been paid for with grant dollars received via the 21st Century Grant, Eisenhower Grant and several Local & State Grants.
Q: How should I set up my facility in preparation for the Scientist?
A: Our Scientists can conduct hands-on science programs where ever children are gathered and excited to learn! Participants will simply need a level surface on which to work (i.e. table top, floor space, etc.). Note that some programs may require access to water; therefore, access to a sink and tap would also be helpful.
