AfterSchool KidzScience

AfterSchool KidzScience Beach Science KitThe Lawrence Hall of Science has created a series of afterschool products that engage students in compelling activities that explore fundamental science concepts. Developed by the Hall’s GEMS program and published by Center for the Collaborative Classroom (formerly known as Developmental Studies Center), the AfterSchool KidzScience series includes kits developed for use in an afterschool setting and provides everything needed for easy implementation, from simple presentation instructions to a complete set of materials.

MARE has teamed with the AfterSchool KidzScience program to develop a Beach Science Kit as part of the Life Science series. By sorting beach objects and studying sand grains from different beaches, children learn how Earth’s surface changes over time and how these changes can be caused by natural forces or influenced by human behavior.
