Atom Secrets & The Periodic Table of Elements

Grades 2-6

This 4-session course offers a fun and engaging introduction to the fields of Chemistry and Quantum Physics! The Atom Secrets course explores atoms, subatomic particles and the Periodic Table of Elements, over four 50-minute sessions meeting once a week. The course introduces students to 54 atomic elements, while exploring advanced concepts such as electron orbitals, covalent and ionic molecular bonds, and the structural organization of the Periodic Table. The course materials include 54 full-color cartoon Atom Flash Cards, emailed to students as printable PDFs, designed by Pixar animation artist Glenn Kim (whose film credits include The Incredibles, Finding Nemo and Monsters Inc). A full-color illustrated Periodic Table of Elements is also provided. In addition, Review Handouts are provided for each class session.

The Path to Space Careers: 4 sessions /Private Classes: Request Times

Grades 4-12

A convenient and fun way for young space enthusiasts to kickstart their space careers. Fine tune your knowledge of space exploration in private classes tailored to your individual interests and needs. Recommended for students interested in expanding their knowledge of space programs, developing their own space projects and one day doing an internship with NASA. In this exciting 4 session course students are introduced to key space missions, careers and NASA mentors which will inspire them on their paths to one day working in the aerospace industry. We travel through the solar system and beyond and learn about the real people who do amazing space jobs every day ( engineers, scientists, astronauts etc). We discuss past, current and future space missions including Artemis, Mars Rovers, Voyager, James Webb, exoplanets, CubeSats, upcoming missions to Europa and Titan. Students are given tips on how to go about applying for NASA internships and will be provided opportunities to connect directly with NASA specialists/mentors. My teaching style is fun and informal and I explain complex ideas in an enjoyable way so my students have fun as they interactively explore their interest in space exploration. I am fortunate to have many contacts who work on space missions at NASA centers, universities and other space agencies. Please send an email to [] to arrange a schedule based on your needs.

Benefits of learning with science camps for kids

Researchers from EDC and SRI International asked more than 1,400 parents about how they think about and help their young children do science. Most parents say they are confident about their ability to teach their young children literacy, math, and social skills, but fewer parents are confident about teaching science. Science camps led by experts can help! Learning science increases kids’ overall understanding of how and why things work. Because science teaches the basics of how certain devices work, it can encourage kids to become technology innovators in the future. Here are a few additional benefits of science camps for kids:

  • Foster a lifelong love of science
  • Learn scientific concepts and encourage scientific thinking and intrigue
  • Develop reasoning and problem-solving skills
  • An encouraging setting that empowers kids to experiment and ask questions
  • Hands-on activities engage them and maintain their interest
  • Pick up new skills from the comfort of your home
  • Get access to the best instructors from around the world

How to pick the best science camp for your student

If you're curious about how to pick the best place to begin learning science, here are a few quick tips to get you started in the right camp:

  1. Your child's grade: The first consideration should be your child’s age group. Make sure the camp you pick has their grade level listed.
  2. Prior experience: We encourage all students to start from Unit 1 even if you have prior science experience. Our classes are designed to be approachable for absolute beginners, but also provide plenty of fun and challenges for students with some experience. If you’ve never taken any science classes before, and you want to join a robotics camp, we'd recommend taking a Scratch camp first.
  3. Budget: Purchasing a complete program such as the AI Explorers program can help you save.
  4. Schedule: Pick a schedule that matches your child's time preferences. If they're a night owl, pick an evening class.
  5. More questions: If you're not sure where to start, you can always email us at, and we'll get you set up.
