What was great about it?
The Zula Science Afterschool Discovery program is rigorous, fun and very easy-to-use in an afterschool setting. Everything, including teaching resources, DVDs, online-technology and hands-on materials come packaged in the Zula Afterschool kits. K-5 students work collaboratively to explore appropriate Earth, Life and Physical science concepts in the Zula program. The home connections and career connections are extremely valuable in the afterschool program. There are even pre- and post-assessments. The online ZulaWorld is a big hit with the students to enhance the hands-on science exploration. This is the perfect program to get students to think critically, problem solve and to experience rigorous Science.
