Children's Science Institute

Explore the most puzzling scientific questions and draw scientific conclusions at the Children’s Science Institute at Wagner College. The program is completely hands-on with experiments that will make science come alive for the science enthusiast. Each week your child will investigate and experiment with a different scientific principle, and there will be several take homes throughout the semester.

Chemistry for Kids

While investigating chemical reactions, students will learn about how new substances are formed and engineer experiments to cause different physical and chemical changes. Get ready to be super hands on with a new experiment each week making substances like slime, silly putty, chalk and more. Best of all, there will be many take homes to show you are a budding scientist. Bring a smock or old shirt, and don’t be afraid to get messy!
