Science Saturday set at Jefferson School Oct. 7

September 30, 2017

The Jefferson School's 6th Biannual Science Saturday will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 7, at The Jefferson School campus, 22051 Wilson Road, Georgetown. The free event gives children an opportunity to explore, up-close and hands-on, the wonders of the world of science. More than a dozen participants representing a wide range of disciplines in the science community will be on the school's 43-acre wooded campus to show, demonstrate and explore with kids the amazing things that happen in science.

Hands-on exhibits include space suits, ILC Dover; working honey beehive with edible honeycomb, Delaware Beekeepers; pond studies, Abbott's Mill Nature Center; building and flying drones, University of Delaware Marine Sciences; music and sound activities, Makin' Music; STEAM: science and art together, Rehoboth Art League; and more.

The Jefferson School believes that hands-on experiences spark a child's interest and imagination, creating a dynamic, integrated environment for learning. Science offers many opportunities for hands-on involvement and integrates well with other areas of the curriculum.

The Jefferson School is an independent, private, nonprofit day school serving students in preschool through eighth grade. The school sits on a 43-acre campus that includes ponds, gardens, a greenhouse, nature trails, a goat tribe and an observation beehive. These elements of the physical campus are integrated into the learning.
