STEM SCHOOL: BIOLOGY I - SCHOLAR (8 classes)



Middle schoolers get hands-on in biology with a variety of labs and experiments designed to challenge and inspire their thinking about the living world! They'll engage in experiments each week and learn proper microscope use, how to make slides, molecule identification, cell differentiation, photosynthesis and much more! All of our STEM School series classes are designed to compliment state standards being taught at home.
