Summer Camp Fun And Fall Learning!

It’s hard to believe that camp season is over already! With a total of 3 camp themes, 5 sessions, and more campers than ever, this summer has been our most successful camp season to date! Every summer we love getting the opportunity to get our hands on science. This summer, we got dirty digging for dinos and learning about paleontology during our Dino Adventure Camp, became mad scientists and got our hands on fun science and experiments during our Mad Science Camp, and learned all about how to care for creatures of all types during Creature Feature Camp. And of course there was plenty of zip lining and putt putt golf!  We had so much fun and can’t wait until next summer!

Check out all of the fun we had at camps this summer!

Not ready for the fun to be over? Neither are we! Now that camps are behind us, it’s time to gear up for Simply Science Classes.  Offered for grades K-12 Tue- Thu, these classes are an excellent way to help your children get a hands on, in-depth look at a wide variety of topics. Each class is interactive and  subjects offered include astronomy, biology, botany, human anatomy and physiology, and chemistry! Students may choose to attend the entire 13 week session or may attend on a class by class basis as best fits with their individual curriculum. If you are part of the home-education community, Simply Science Classes are an enriching opportunity you won’t want to miss!

Registration is now open and can be done online, in person, or over the phone (330-665-3466). You can check out the Fall 2016 brochure by clicking here.

“But how do I know if Simply Science classes are right for me?!” you may be asking. That’s why on Friday, September 9th from 5:30-8:30 we are hosting an open house! This FREE event is open to everyone-whether you have attended our classes in the past, are already signed up, or if you are looking to see what its all about!  After a light dinner, you will have the opportunity to see classrooms, meet the staff, preview materials, check out some interactive science journals, and see all that Simply Science has to offer! Did we also mention that our zip-line will be open?! This evening is the perfect opportunity to see what we have to offer, ask questions, and see if Simply Science is right for you. We hope to see you there!
