Spreading Science

The goal of Spreading Science is to educate the elementary students, and parents of these students, at Lucas Elementary with interactive science experiments. The main focus behind our activities is to break down the myths that children and parents have about vaccines. The outreach project will consist of three activity days during Lucas Elementary School’s after school program: Lucas On Campus. The activities will be hands on and allow the children to visually learn about the germs that make them sick and the vaccines that can help prevent these. We will also develop worksheets to be sent home with the students so that their parents will see what their kids learned during our program. This will allow the children to expand their science communication skills by talking about key takeaways and will also allow the parents to gain knowledge from their kids.
