    Comment:  Held: After schoolReview: My son has had a great experience at Tiny Scientist. It's a very hands-on program, and meets the kids where they are. Each session has a theme, and they do a great job developing a really varied, interesting curriculum around it. They do lots of experiments and hands-on projects. Also, the school picks up from our local elementary school (and others in the area), which is a big plus. I'll be honest- the classes are fairly pricey, but I think the kids really get something they don't get in school - a chance to do hands-on science in small groups, with a lot of personal attention. Skills developed: Creativity, building, free thinking.What would you change about the program, if anything, and why? Some more classes/science fairs or something of the like geared toward older kids. I'm a little worried my child may age out as he hits the upper elementary years.Age of child: 7Based on an experience from the 2016-2017 school year

    Comment:  Rick, one of the teachers at the science camp, is "the funniest guy in the world" according to my seven-year-old. My kids have been going to tiny Scientist summer camp since my oldest was five. My kids came home brimming with excitement about what they learned, and spent dinner explaining the amazing experiments they did. I can't recommend this highly enough. The adults in charge are supersmart, engaged, kind, and funny.Age of child: Ages 5-9Based on a Summer 2017 experience

    Subject:  Experience with Tiny Scientist?
    Comment:  We had my son's 5th birthday party at the Tiny Scientist and it was great. He liked it so much that we put him in a camp there for a day when school was out.

    Subject:  Experience with Tiny Scientist?
    Comment:  I can tell you this. My almost 6 year old grandson went for a week this summer. The week was billed as "circuit week". Four days of the science project were seriously lame. A balloon filled with something, projects made out of paper, a jar of red liquid with some things inside. (Supposedly a snow globe). One day only they did circuits & connected wires to have a little bulb light up. It was a BIG disappointment as far as science. But my grandson loved the camp! I think because the staff was really fun. But he also loved zoo & Y camp. Won't do it again next summer.

    Comment:  Age of Child: 7 Likes: Tiny Scientist is centered around exciting, fun hands-on science experiments. My son absolutely adored the teachers and the experiments. We only signed up for one week (the "Gross But Great Science" theme, which was fantastic!). They balance out the science with free play, daily trips to the park, and snack time. The smaller size and high teacher/counselor to camper ratio also worked really well for my child. What would you change? I wouldn't change anything. Would you send your child(ren) again? Yes Do you recommend? Highly recommend

    Subject:  Tiny Scientist new PreK afterschool class
    Comment:  No affiliation, just a mom who wants to spread the word about the new PreK class at Tiny Scientist on 8th Ave/Windsor Pl.My daughter has taken some really fun science classes at Tiny Scientist and they're offering a Monday afternoon class from Sept-Dec for PreK students. They'll do free pickup from 280, and the class may shift times a bit to be 3:30-4:30 after school.

    Comment:  Program: Age of Child: 5 Likes: The camp was very interesting. Every day they did a few different science experiments. He loved the mixing, oozing, gory touching, molding etc.. He also loved the challenges, e.g., who could make their rocket shoot the farthest, etc.. It was competitive but in a very non-threatening way. He also enjoyed the fact that it was a small group ( he didn't say this, but he knew everyone's name and I could tell he really felt a part of). He loved the head teacher, Julie. What would you change? Nothing. Would you send your child(ren) again? Yes Do you recommend? Highly recommend Do you have any other information to add? The camp was a great experience for Maddox. He really loved it and the owner and her assistant had very easy personalities, confidence without pomp. I was very comfortable leaving my son there and my son actually learned something.
