This is an 9-week exploration of amazing life scientists and life science. Each week we will feature a different scientist and realm of life science/nature studies. This is subject to change, but here is an initial list of our subjects of exploration:

Karl von Frisch - 1886-1982 for the bees / bee science/pollination

Rachel Carson - 1907-1964 interconnectedness - chemical dangers

Jacques Cousteau - 1910- 1997 - for the love of the ocean / water ecosystems

Suzanne Simard - contemporary  - for the love of the trees / tree science

We will meet Thursdays 10AM-2PM from April 8th through June 3.  You can drop off or stay and play. Please bring lunch, snack, and filled water bottle. Masks must be worn inside the classroom, but may be removed outside. We will be outside as much as possible. Please dress appropriately for the weather since we'll be doing a lot outside. Ideal for ages 7 and up, but I'm flexible. Cost is $160 for the 9 weeks and I do offer a sibling discount - I charge $5 an hour typically. In this case I've charged for 8 weeks instead of 9 in case I need to cancel for some reason. When you register, you can pay a deposit or pay in full. Use coupon code "sibling" for 10% off. 





  • Deposit


    This holds your spot in the class and pays for the first session. You will then be billed separately for the remainder of the class and can pay in whatever installments you prefer over the 9 weeks. add coupon code "sibling" for 10% off if registering multiple kiddos.




  • Pay in full


    Use this option to pay in full for the 9-week session. Enter coupon code "sibling" for 10% off if registering for multiple kiddos.
