Not sure how to begin that Science Fair Project Report? What is the Scientific Method anyway? Fear not! Come to our Research Rocks program on Saturday, November 22, 2014 from 10:00--11:00 AM in the iLab. We will look at what makes good research and how to write up a basic report. This class is open to kids ages 9 to 12 years old. Registration begins October 27th.
