Frightful Fun Funshop! 

Friday October 13, 5:30 pm- 8 pm  
Grades 3-6, Includes pizza dinner

Registration is open for October's Frightful FunFunshop complete with creepy-crawly hissing cockroaches and blood-sucking sea creatures. Spooktacular STEM adventures for students grade 3-6. Of course, we'd only do this on Friday the 13th. Join us if you dare! 

Registration Fee: $55 
Registration closes October 6th, 2017
Scholarship Application period ends October 1st, 2017 

Grades 3-4
Be prepared to "race" your fears! Creepy crawly hissing cockroaches will become your test subjects as you experiment with different stimuli to see what really makes your cockroach scamper. The big finale will be races to see who has created the most enticing racing strategy for their roach to run!

Grades 5-6

Vampires are not the only creatures to gorge on blood! Come dissect sea lampreys, ghoulish parasites known to feed off the blood of other animals, to discover how their special anatomy makes blood the perfect meal.  Then you will get to experiment with (fake) blood to learn about real blood's cool properties!
