Science Expos

Science Expos are designed to appeal to a Pre-K – 8th grade crowd with five hands-on science activity stations per theme presented in a fun, festival atmosphere. Great for community, family, after-school events, or any gathering for a wide age group. Each of the five hands-on stations is designed to last 5-10 minutes. Up to 100 participants can be accommodated over the course of 2 hours.  Science Expos have Next Generation Science Standards, Kentucky Academic Standards, math, and literacy standards integrated into a variety of topics.
