The Little Scientists "hands-on" approach to teaching and learning was created to achieve two goals: to instill in children a passion for the exciting world of science and to help children develop specific scientific skills that will enable them to enjoy a lifetime of learning.
We now have over 200 "hands-on" science lessons in subjects such as: Why is the Sky Blue, Magical Magnets, the Science of Flying, Chemistry, Electromagnetism -- and we are continuing to develop new lessons.
We were founded by Dr. Heidi Gold-Dworkin, a Yale doctor of molecular biology and a member of the 1989 Nobel prize winning team.
Headquartered in Connecticut, Little Scientists® programs are now being implemented in public and private schools in the United States, Brazil and Japan. Little Scientists® ® has curriculum unit lessons that exceed the rigors of the new NGSS and all state science standards.
Little Scientists® specializes in providing personalized service to teachers and schools, modeling inquiry-based science, providing classroom mentoring, and professional development.
Science lessons are designed to be teacher friendly, applicable, and hands-on. These exciting, easy to teach classes motivate children and teachers alike. We meet local schools’ needs with personal attention and service.
Little Scientists® classes increase cognitive, scientific, mathematic and literacy achievement for all students.
