Summer Daily Enrichment Program

This program offers students the variety of learning with excitement.

Science/Coding

Exciting and safe science experiments are provided suitable for school science curriculum. Students work together to follow step by step experiment processes, observe chemical reactions, and learn about difficult scientific terms on the way. Coding is a necessary subject in our students’ generation to learn. Guided by a teacher, students absorb much more information when the lesson is set as a game. That’s why we make coding fun.
