 science_matters_logo-new_copy.gifDoes your child like exploring the outdoors? Are they always taking things apart or love solving problems? Do your kids excel at math or science? If you found yourself answering yes to any of these questions or you have a rising first through an eighth-grade child who shows high interest or aptitude in science, math, or technology-related subjects, you should definitely send your child to Science Matters at Auburn University! They'll have a blast, and you'll feel great about positively contributing to your child's education during summer break!
