Programs

TESLA members enjoy working together with Discovery Space to plan programs that we directly implement with students in the surrounding communities.  Past programs include the development of two lesson-based activities revolving around the science of soap and the science behind chromatography.  TESLA members are currently working on developing after-school program curricula that members of our organization then take to State College Area elementary schools to engage with groups of about 20 students at a time, grades kindergarten through five.  These after-school programs revolve around a range of science themes and involve 3-5 activities for each after-school session.  Our goal with all of the programs that we create is to teach children science in meaningful and exciting ways.
