Professor Egghead Science Academy is a place where we do science. We get our hands messy, we build, mix, experiment, and we learn. We provide simple, real world explanations… which translates to real learning. Our mission is to bring science to everyone. That’s represented through our motto:
Make Science Accessible, Understandable, and Cool
Everyone can be a scientist. Your home is your laboratory, your school is your laboratory, and so is the beach, your backyard, and even your bedroom.
The key to our specialized curriculum is that it’s designed to engage kids in a short period of time while still leaving them with a concrete understanding of important scientific and engineering concepts and ideas. In this fast-paced world of high-speed everything, we value high quality in-person interactions to produce a new generation of thinkers and a community engaged with science.
