Self-paced Chemistry experiments during April vacation week. Using a special video made by Dr. Sandra Pearl and Dr. Elizabeth Bless from SEED (Science and Education and Development, Inc). and a kit of materials that includes every item needed for active experimentation, teens and tweens will experiment with chemistry. SEED is a regional nonprofit organization run by PhD scientists with a passion for empowering teachers with the confidence to instill a love of science in their students.

When you register, we will send you a link to the YouTube video that will instruct you how to do the experiments. Do them at your own pace and send us some exciting pictures.
