November's Topic: Water | Scientist: Gitanjali Rao
Saturday Science is back for it’s third year and this time, It’s Alive! This year’s program features the vibrant and dynamic nature of the sciences, tailored to two elementary school-age groups (K-2 and 3-5. Age limits are strictly enforced to ensure a positive experience for all children.)
Saturday Science sessions expose kids to different scientific fields and the leading female scientists in those fields. Each session includes a hands-on experiment or craft activity. The Saturday Science team was founded by Foster Elementary School parents Sonia Steele and Dr. Katie McBrine, and the team has expanded to include local parents Marie Bohane (Plymouth River Elementary), Lauren Gadot (East School), and Cassie Saitow (Hull).This program requires registration. Please register online or by calling 781-741-1405 ext. 1403.
