Forensic Science – Forensics is a science that is a lot like a game! It involves finding clues, piecing together a puzzle, and solving the mysteries left behind at a crime scene. Forensic science includes the preservation and reconstruction of evidence after time has passed. Use your critical thinking skills to become a STEM crime scene investigator.

Anatomy & Physiology - Anatomy is the scientific study of the structure of living things. Learn how we are fearfully and wonderfully made.

Genetics - Genetics is the science of studying how living things pass on characteristics (or traits) and its variations in their cell make-up from one generation to the other.

Kitchen Chemistry; Health & Nutrition – Includes educational hands-on activities and experiments geared toward health, nutrition, and wellness.
