Going back to school 

Summer vacation is over and the school year marks a fresh start. Anything is possible as students enter new classrooms, make new friends, and explore new subjects. We've curated activities that will prepare you for the new school year and help you stay organized, all while having fun!

Make a Vision Board

Make plans and goals for the future by making a collage or vision board! A vision board is a collage of mixed media, usually images and text, of a person's intentions and wishes. Create a vision board by using materials you can find at home.

Perfect your lunchtime meal with science! Through cooking techniques and the everyday kitchen equipment, you'll make a flavorful and gooey grilled cheese sandwich.
