Children are born scientists with curious minds, they investigate every facet of life.

FasTracKids takes advantage of a child’s natural curiosity and investigative nature and inspires their minds to explore the world around them. Our FasTracKids Science Enrichment Class is Designed for children ages 6-8 years old (1st – 3rd Grade).

By using hands-on, interactive, inquiry based approach to teaching, FasTracKids inspires children to discover the wonders of Science. Our goal is to make learning exciting and “Cleverly Disguised as Fun!”  Children work in collaborative groups and are encouraged to communicate their findings through video-taped presentations. They develop superb skills and bring that enthusiasm and knowledge home with them so the learning continues.
