Lee County Youth Development Center – Science Experiments

LCYDC is a center for kids at risk, usually due to a rough home environment. The school houses, feeds, and teaches the students; however, the lessons are usually little more than worksheets. They never get to do any hands-on learning, but that’s where we come in! We provide hands-on learning that demonstrates core scientific principles.

This week, we will be building simple microphones. We need help to make sure all the kids stay at the same pace. Volunteers will mainly help with questions and troubleshooting for a class of around 12 students. The ages vary, but all are around high school age. Join us for an easy, fun science experiment that will provide a great learning experience for kids within the community!

*Please contact Joseph Anderson to sign up.
