Science After School
Fall Investigations Were Incredible
Fall programs of Science After School at Hemingway STEAM School and Bellevue Elementary School are complete. Twenty-five students enjoyed adventures and exploring the outdoor environment. Students at Hemingway STEAM School were able to visit the Wood River Community YMCA for one week to learn about plant adaptations at Bonni's Garden. Students in Bellevue participated in a service learning project at the Howard Preserve with the Wood River Land Trust

We are looking forward to our winter session of Science After School at Alturas Elementary beginning on January 15.
