Saturday Science and Art

Saturday Science and Art

Our Science/Art Integrated program has been a BIG hit! As a result, we have only a few open spots for certain weeks and grades still available. 

Online registration is now closed, but if you are interested in one of the few remaining spots, please contact Andrea Phillips (philland@iu.edu) for availability and information on how to register by phone.


Children in grades K-6 are invited to join our Saturday Science and Art program. There will be four separate sessions in April and families can register for as many as they like.
