Out-of-school time programs are invited to register their programs so youth in grades K-8 have the opportunity to meet a REAL scientist during live interactive science webinars. Virtual attendees will learn interesting and fun facts on the special science topics, as they meet, chat and ask questions with the guest scientist of the day.
NOTE: Each session is scheduled on a school holiday so we are encouraging camps that are not open to share links and information with families so children can log-in at home.
For questions, please contact Prime Time’s STEAM Professional Development Specialist Patricia Sasson at 561-600-9547 / firstname.lastname@example.org.
