** Early Bird Sale: 40% Off! **
Monday, April 2nd - Friday, April 6th
Monday, April 2nd: Dusting for Evidence
All Sleuths to the Crime Scene! Give fingerprinting a whorl in this special Spring Break session. Are all of your fingerprints the same? Are the prints on your hands symmetrical? Learn about your own unique prints before learning to dust, lift, and analyze these special finger features like a pro. Have a sister or brother that’s getting into your stuff, or a dessert-stealing dad? Catch the culprit and practice at home with your very own fingerprint analysis kit and ink pad!
Tuesday, April 3rd: Fibers and Furs and Hairs, Oh My!
Even the sneakiest, stealthiest, glove-wearing, tip-toeing culprit leaves behind some sort of evidence at the scene of the crime. Let’s go microscopic and learn to distinguish between the tiniest of fibers. Take home a personalized pocket magnifying glass to continue your sleuthing anytime, anywhere.
Wednesday, April 4th: Secret Messages
A proper sleuth knows that many important clues are imperceptible to the naked eye. Throw in some heat or ultraviolet light, however, and you just might uncover secret messages written in invisible ink. Before you leave for the day, you’ll know how to write secret messages to friends and reveal secret clues written with your very own spy pen! Grab a spot in this awesome one-day program before it disappears!
Thursday, April 5th: Dszquphsbqiz, a.k.a. Cryptography
Dbo zpv sfbe uijt nfttbhf? I didn’t think so! The most sophisticated criminal teams hide their communications in code. As a super sleuth, you need to identify and crack codes as quickly as possible. Learn all about Ceasar’s Cipher, morse, and number codes while compiling a strong set of decoding tools to store in your super sleuth kit!
Friday, April 6th: Sleuth-A-Palooza
Every minute of this action-packed day will be spent solving a series of mysteries. We’ll use all our super sleuth tools and skills to answer the age-old question, “whodunit?” Decode secret messages written in invisible ink, analyze microscopic fibers and DNA left at the scene, and experience the satisfaction of a crime well solved! BANDITS BEWARE!

Our after school programs offer young scientists a multidisciplinary chance to build fine motor skills, develop an understanding of scientific principles, build vocabulary, work together with other scientists and engage in scientific discussion. We'll take scientists on a trip through the water cycle, learn how volcanoes work, experience the life cycles of insects and the amazing journey plants take as they grow from seeds! Recycling helps us turn trash into treasure! We’ll make a chemical reaction “worm” that has us grossed-out and giggly and we’ll figure out how to hold a bubble! Along the way, we’ll analyze data we collect as we mix, measure, ask questions and have a ton of FUN! We offer:
- ENGAGING HANDS-ON SCIENCE IN A LIGHT, RELAXED, ATMOSPHERE
- CURRICULUM CREATED AND TAUGHT BY LICENSED TEACHERS
- SMALL CLASS SIZE
- BRAIN-FOOD SNACKS
- CLASSES BEGIN THE WEEK OF MARCH 26TH - JUNE 22ND
PARK SLOPE SCHOOL P.S. 282
Join us at P.S.282 for an amazing scientific voyage! After scientists are picked up from their classrooms, we will let kids unwind with a "brain-food" snack and play with our super cool “science-y” toys. We’ll have tons of fun as we explore new concepts through hands-on activities. During the upcoming year, our P.S. 282 PreK - 2nd Grade scientists will explore the fascinating rock cycle and go gem-mining, have a blast with basic chemistry, learn about recycling, the human body, dinosaurs, and more! Parents get a weekly review to help keep track of what their scientists are learning!
