Because science is a field which lends itself to the precepts of discovery or brain-based learning. That translates to mean active, unexpected, surprising, funny, creative, and outrageous learning. This kind of learning is proven to be stored in long term memory.
Because when it comes to kids, the weirder the better. Just ask them! Some of the RMH-NY favorite projects are: building rockets, exploding volcanoes, making soap, soda or slime (it's chemistry after all), building electrical circuits, and so much more. And as the children will tell you, our Weird Science program is literally a blast!
