About Us

Our Philosophy

Terrific Scientific is a hands-on, minds-on, challenging SCIENCE program for girls and boys that lays the foundation for innovative minds and problem solvers of the future through science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM). Throughout the year, students learn the fundamentals of inquiry-based learning: Be curious, ask questions, think outside the box, explore possibilities, discover what you don’t know, experiment and try things out, and evaluate results. Through this approach, students carry out experiments, engage in team activities, and see how science works in the real world.  Our camps and classes appeal to children who have a genuine interest in how things work and what things are made of.

Terrific Scientific provides inquiry-based after school classes and camps in environmental science, veterinary medicine, robotics, forensics, video game creation, food science, technology, paleontology, engineering, chemistry, biology, astronomy, oceanography, medicine and special effects. In doing so, we are helping children develop the scientific literacy essential for life as effective, productive citizens of the 21st century. We believe that each and every child is a scientist and we want to make them a better scientist!

By working with professional colleagues and developers of science and robotic curriculum, we have created an unparalleled set of cutting edge programs designed for the young mind ages 4-15.  All of our programs are “kid-tested” to ensure that classes and camps are fun, full of scientific concepts, and have a track record of being successful! With Terrific Scientific, students have a safe and positive learning environment where they can experiment, problem solve, build scientific skills and delve into the mysteries of science.

Locally owned, we have over 10 years of teaching experience, curriculum development, and running after school programs/camps. Our team of professionals and college counselors from the fields of education, engineering, science, psychology, art and technology bring a set of unique experiences that will enrich and inspire young students to stretch out of their comfort zone to the depths of their critical thinking skills! We require that each instructor receive full background checks and certifications.
