green superheroes of science

Join this four-week-long series as a green superhero of science! Youth in grades K-3 will engage in fun experiments that spark curiosity and discovery.

Do this at home

Each experiment will include a lesson plan and recorded video to guide youth before a weekly interactive gathering. Each youth registered will receive a free supply kit.

Starting April 9, you can find “how-to videos” on our Green Superheroes of Science (GSOS) website, so you can begin doing your first experiment before our April 15 LIVE gathering.
