What we do at Let’s Experiment!
Children get to explore various branches of applied science, through project based learning and experimentation. Every day brings something new!
“If your child likes science, this is the program for you!” -Jess, mom
Our week together will be divided into these modules:
Drone clinic & professional gyroscope demonstration
Engineering with Leonardo da Vinci
Experimentation with Galileo Galilei
Let’s Experiment! is geared towards rising 4th through 6th grade children. All our activities are designed to expand your child’s knowledge and skills, all while having fun and making new friends.
Many of the modules have an outdoor component, for which the Regis College campus is well suited. Majestic open spaces, mature trees and beautiful landscaping provide the perfect setting. Mid-morning and afternoon we take a twenty minute recess and get outside for some good ol’ fashion play time.
“Edge on Science takes science off the page and puts it into the hands of your child” -Rondalyn Whitney, mom
“I’m amazed at how eager my 10 year old daughter was to go each morning and at what she was able to accomplish during her week.” -Goeffrey Clark, dad
The scientific method will be taught. Children will get to present and share their findings. They will hone their ability to observe, to wonder, to ask questions. Games, challenges and the freedom to explore, add to the fun! At the end of the week, we will stage a mini science fair.
Your lead instructor is Brian Kreidberg, Computer Engineering at Hofstra University, assisted by engineer, John Aviste for the astronomy module. Student to instructor ratio of 7:1 or less.
