Gakken Science Experiment Classroom Summer Program for Kids 7 and up

on March 21, 2010

I came across the Gakken Science Experient Classroom website and found it interesting enough to share what they have to say about their programs. For mom’s whose kids are more inclined towards science, this might be the right program for you.

The Gakken SCIENCE EXPERIMENT CLASSROOM (SEC) offers a lot of exciting experiments designed for children! Even adults (including educators like us!) are amazed and truly entertained with the hands-on Science activities!

The SEC stimulates children to think and encourages them to ask questions like “Why does that happen?” or “How does this work?”

How can a fluorescent lamp light up without plugging in the cord? How can a doll contract inside a syringe? Why does a very fast bicycle less likely to fall over? Can you imagine that these questions are actually about static electricity, air pressure, and rotation? Very interesting, isn’t it?

There is more-than-enough stuff in the SEC to boost your child’s active involvement and to satisfy his intellectual curiosity.

What’s uniquely SEC?

It’s the way we help develop your child’s inquisitive mind. The SEC experiment sessions are divided into three parts:

1. Participation in scientific experiments

Despite the easy access to scientific information nowadays, experiential learning is still the better learning technique. That’s been tried and tested. In the SEC, your child actually does all the experiments lined up for her each session!

2. Hands-on learning with take-home science kits

Aside from the experiments, each SEC module gives your child her very own science kit. Each kit enables her to individually explore the science concepts, to deepen her understanding of what she discovers, and to share her discovery with you at home.

3. Scientific report writing

Before the SEC ends, we give your child the time he needs to slow down, to synthesize what he has learned and to reflect on what he has gained and contributed during the day’s session. It’s a great way to put a closure to a marvelous SEC day!

The Gakken SEC is developed and owned by Gakken Educational Co. Ltd. (Tokyo, Japan), recognized one time as Japan’s “second Ministry of Education.” It is a pioneering company that has been in the business of educating children for more than 60 years now.

Famous Gakken studentes were the 2002 Nobel Prize Laureate for Chemistry, Kouichi Tanaka, and the first Japanese astronaut, Mamoru Mouiri.

You can’t lose with this outstanding guarantee!
