Applying Science with Kids


With support from the Center for Social Concern, Applying Science with Kids, or ASK, is an organization dedicated to teaching young students the excitement and wonders of science! Science and math classes that are disconnected from first-hand experience can discourage students. We believe that the learning experience can be more effective if students are given a more hands-on approach.

Every week, we go to two after-school program facilities, Under Armour House at Fayette (Living Classrooms) and Village Learning Place, to lead science experiments and to do demonstrations for students in grades 2 to 5. We choose topics ranging from biology to geology to physics to advanced ice cream chemistry. We are always looking for new ideas to keep the kids engaged; the lessons we teach are designed by our own volunteers.
On Thursdays from 3:45-5:30pm, we visit Village Learning Place using the JHMI shuttle. Our trips to Under Armour House are on Friday evenings from 3:45-5:30/6pm and transportation is provided through HopVans. If you are unable to make these times but are still interested in our group, you can still be a part of ASK! Since we design our own lesson plans, we can always use the extra help in logistics.
Please e-mail us ( if you'd like to be added to our mailing list, where we send out our weekly experiment announcements.
