Can you improve an athlete’s performance using brain science? Can you engineer a better water filter? Is it possible to invent a healthier – and more delicious – pancake?
This summer, Evanston 3rd–5th graders enrolled in Youth & Opportunity United (Y.O.U) no cost, 8-week summer program had a chance to explore these questions and experience what it’s like to be in Science Club!
Participating kids had a choice of 10 different program tracks – including 4 hands-on science and engineering curricula developed by Science in Society staff for Science Club: NeuroSports, Science of Food, Medical Mystery, and the Clean Water Challenge.
Junior Science Club – Science in Society’s afterschool science program for 3rd-5th graders – starts back up this fall at Dawes and Oakton Elementary Schools in Evanston.
