The curriculum for the program addresses Tennessee’s Department of Education science curriculum objectives. Each class is taught by individuals who have knowledge and training in the area he/she is teaching. The interactive curriculum utilizes scientific investigations, scavenger hunts, relay and tag games, and group challenges to teach the units of study. Year after year, teachers comment on how well the activities complement and reinforce the science topics they teach in the classroom.
