What is ScienceDays?

ScienceDays is a mentoring program to foster scientific curiosity in elementary school students by engaging them in hands-on learning opportunities beyond the ordinary classroom experience. The program aims to create a national network of enthusiastic high school and college mentors who are dedicated to making a difference in their communities through promoting science education.  We are a nationally recognized 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.

The Duke/Durham chapter of ScienceDays interacts weekly with two local elementary schools, George Watts and E.K. Powe. The members of ScienceDays travel to one or both elementaries each week, teaching hands-on, interactive science lessons pertaining to a variety of themes, from geology and earth science to chemistry and physics. Check out our blog posts for a preview of some of the lessons!
