What makes DashX special?

Pencil Lots of learning +
beaker Lots of experimenting!
Alternating classes of theory and lab.

Density LabNotebook Notes, videos, and links are online.
Students can catch-up or learn at home if they miss a lesson or want to do more with it. (See this term's Lesson Plans)

A Dash of Science is different from a science club or show; it is more academic - in a fun and engaging way!
It is hands on, but also covers theory. Theory is taught in a way that every student is engaged and discoving new concepts.

A Dash of Science is different; it is not a science show - it is a place for children who already love science and are ready to go deeper and learn more!

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can parents attend with students?
A: Absolutely! In-fact we even encourage it.

Q: What if I don't have an iPad, tablet, or laptop?
A: There are iPads and laptops available to borrow during class.

Q: What do you mean by "more academic"?
A: If you are picturing an old-fashion school room with a teacher lecturing at the front, and students frantically taking notes, don't worry! It just means that while we do lots of hands-on experiments, we also take a moment to look at the concepts (and yes, sometimes even a peak at the mathmatics) behind an experiment.

Q: My child has trouble reading/writing will they still be able to participate?
A: Absolutely! We work with students of all ages and abilities. Parents can also attend to assist.
