During the special workshop times, children have the opportunity to participate in incredible workshops with trained professionals. These workshops will immerse students in specialty areas, challenge them, and provide plenty of opportunities to explore passions.
Henk Wevers volunteers at the Boys and Girls Club of Kingston, teaching science and technology to children ages 9-12. Some of the projects include birdhouses, tool boxes, kaleidoscopes, fast spinning tops, race cars and launchers. While the science is basic, the hands-on work provides each child with a long lasting object of great pride. Henk's program motivates children to complete hands-on projects and expose them to the exciting world of science. Please visit Henk's blog for more information.
