Title Description Cost
The Art in Science - Young Engineers
PUBLISHED

The Art in Science is a unique program developed by a scientist and artist to enrich children in various scientific concepts. In the program, the kids learn various science topics with hands-on activities that turn into interesting artworks pleasing to the eye and intriguing to the mind.

In every lesson, we will study a new concept in chemistry and perform an experiment that will end up being an artwork. Subjects covered are absorption, chromatography, chemical reaction, state of matter, diffusion, and many more.

We have 3 engineering classes - each one has 5 lessons. Each lesson is a stand-alone and no prerequisites are needed. You can register to any class - no specific order is required, or you can drop into any of the lessons.
