Why do students love Club Scientific After-School SCIENCE CLUBS?

  • Hands-On Science Each Week! A new, hands-on project each week means your child never gets bored!
  • Small Classes! Class sizes are kept small to ensure opportunity for 1-on-1 attention for every child.  (Classes ARE capped, so enroll early to ensure a spot for your child!)
  • Themed Projects! Each Session includes 3 separate Units of lessons themed on on exciting topics, such as Chemistry, Physics, Engineering, and more!
  • Take home the fun! Every project includes a take-away item to continue the learning at home.
  • Keep Learning At Home! "Parent Lesson Guides" are emailed each week to explain the week's lesson, and include additional ideas for projects that you can perform at home!
*PLEASE NOTE – Fall/Winter Sessions are limited to Grades 1-5. Kindergarteners may be enrolled in the Spring Session at any time.

How does it work?

  • Classes take place right on campus! Classes are held in a classroom on campus and students are collected by Club Scientific instructors in our designated area. Students are always supervised.
  • All supplies are provided! Classes are 1-hour long, and offered in a Fall/Winter Session and a Spring Session. All materials will be provided by your child's Club Scientific instructor.
  • A new project every week! Experiments never repeat, and you can view photos of our classes throughout the year on our Facebook Page!

Project Previews

For the 2022-23 School Year

So that every student can experience as much science as possible, each session contains 3 separate themed "Units". Each unit will explore a variety of projects within a scientific topic, including but not limited to: chemistry, physics, engineering, geology and more! Descriptions of each unit and some example projects are provided below!


Fall/Winter Session


  • Unit 1 - Chemistry 101

    • From our stock pile of hundreds of recipes and formulas, we have chosen our top favorite chemistry activities. Students will love exploring and examining the results of these crazy chemical concoctions!
  • Unit 2 - Spin Central

    • Fidget Spinners? More like PHYSICS spinners! Join us as we explore the awesome physics behind spinning objects! Students will learn the science behind Yo-Yo’s, make their own “Illusion Spinners”, Balloon Powered Helicopters, and more!
  • Unit 3 - Extreme Engineering

    • Construct your own crazy contraptions as we learn how to ENGINEER our way out of some sticky situations! Students will learn the basics of Engineering as we build our own Slingshot Car, an “Extendo-Grabber”, and incredible drinking straw structures!

Spring Session


  • Unit 1 - Slime Time

    • Pop Quiz: What’s ooey, gooey, and gets kids excited about Science? It’s SLIME! Join us as we put a new twist on the classic slime recipes! We will make “Fluffy” slime, Putty slime, and even a super-special UV-reactive slime that will blow you away!
  • Unit 2 - Magnetic Attractions

    • Magnets! How do they work? We’ll teach you when you sign up for this fun session about the science of Magnetism! Students will learn magnetic attraction and repulsion, how an “electromagnet” works, and how we can use this knowledge to perform “magnetic levitation!”
  • Unit 3 - Jurassic Adventures

    • Travel back in time as we explore the incredible world of the Dinosaurs! Live the life of a Paleontologist as we crack open some ancient geodes, excavate a fossilized Diving Beetle, create fossil replicas, and more!

FAQ's

  • What is your Tax ID/EIN number?
    • Our Federal EIN is 26-1497125
  • Where do the After-School classes take place?
    • Each of our schools provides us with a designated classroom for our classes. See the School Procedures tab for information specific to your child's school.
  • Does my child need to bring anything to class?
    • No need to bring anything!  All materials will be provided by your child’s instructor.
  • Do the projects repeat?
    • No. Every week is a new project! And each year is different, so your child can enjoy Club Scientific after-school classes year after year!
  • What if a class is canceled?
    • Cancellations are very rare, and usually only occur due to extreme weather. If school is cancelled, then our classes would be cancelled as well. If a class were to be cancelled for some reason, we notify all parents via text message and email as early as possible so that alternate arrangements can be made.
  • How do I pay?
    • You can pay online by credit card when you register! We also have monthly payment plans available at check-out.
  • What is your cancellation policy?
    • We stand by our classes with a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. If your child does not have a great time, and you decide to withdraw within the first two weeks of an after-school class, or after the first day of a summer camp, we will issue you a full refund.
    • We do not issue refunds for non-attendance (i.e. sick days, vacations, etc...) Our classes have a limited number of spaces available, so each student enrolled has a guaranteed reserved spot which cannot be resold to any other students. Similar to the Extended Day programs at our schools, we still have to purchase the same amount of supplies and staff the same employees, regardless of student attendance.
    • If your family's schedule changes midway through a semester, we may be able to offer a refund of the future unattended classes if we can replace your child with another student on the waitlist. These refunds will carry a $15 Cancellation fee, to cover our non-refundable credit card fees and school rental charges.
    • All payment plan cancellations will carry a $15 fee
