Chemistry of Reactions in Sprout Spring 19 (Feb. 16 - Mar. 02, 2019)
Why should you learn about chemical reactions? Simply because it is involved in every aspect of your daily life! You get your energy from food through chemical reactions, you bake through a reaction, and you start a fire again with a chemical reaction! This class will teach you all about chemistry using fun demos and interactive projects!


Nanotechnology in Sprout Fall 17 (Sep. 30 - Oct. 14, 2017)
Do you never want to do laundry again? Be bulletproof? If you answered yes to these questions, then you should learn about nanotechnology! Nanotechnology works with matters at the scale of 1 to 100 nanometers. One nanometer is so small that Shaquille O’Neal, is 2,160,000,000 nanometers tall. This course shortly explores the mechanism/history behind nanotechnology, and focuses mostly on its applications in medicine, electronics, environment, and etc.

Cloning in Splash Fall 17 (Nov. 11, 2017)
Do you ever wonder if another person exactly the same as you can be produced? Cloning has the answer to that. In this class, we go over various cloning techniques such as somatic cell nuclear transfer, and how we have implement these techniques on animals, such as sheep.
