Junior Science Club

Junior Science Club is an after-school club for the youngest members of the Pedersen-McCormick Boys & Girls Club and True Value Boys & Girls Club in Chicago. Designed specifically for kindergarten through 5th grade, Junior Science Club hopes to increase excitement, curiosity, and interest in science. Kids meet every other week for hands-on experiments with real scientist volunteers from Northwestern University graduate programs. Junior Science Club explores all scientific fields, including biology, chemistry, engineering, and physics, and teaches kids the basic skills needed to be an observant and curious scientist. After graduating from Junior Science Club, kids have the opportunity to join the larger Science Club program.
