The Environmental Resource Center is offering its six-week outdoor after-school science program, Science After School, at Hemingway Elementary School on Tuesdays starting Oct. 11 and at Bellevue Elementary School on Thursdays starting Oct. 13. Both run from 2:30-4 p.m.

    Science After School is a free six-week program that provides fourth- and fifth-grade students opportunities beyond the school day to participate in project-based learning within the context of natural science, the environment and sustainability issues. ERC staff builds opportunities for students to explore science through scientific research, exploration, collaboration, games, journaling and service learning.

    Hemingway students will focus on how human actions influence the natural world through exploring topics related to sustainability, while Bellevue students will focus on exploring the different animal habitats available in the Wood River Valley.

    Pre-registration is required and space is limited.

    For more information or to register, contact Alisa McGowan, ERC program director, at alisa@ercsv.org or 726-4333.
