Fall Super Saturday 2.02 is a recently updated format of our long-running Super Saturday program.
Fall Super Saturday 2.02 is a family-oriented program designed to meet the needs of academically, creatively, and artistically talented children from pre-kindergarten through fifth grade. Each child, along with a parent/guardian/grandparent/caring adult, will attend one day of challenging, hands-on activities related to a central theme. The content of the STEM focused courses is at least two grade levels above each child’s current grade level. The children will explore concepts and ideas in the STEM related fields, while parents/adults gain experience working with open-ended activities that require critical and creative thinking. Snacks and water will be provided.
