    There are many different after-school options here on our island, but time with Dr. Erica is really something special. My son comes home from each session full of wonder, excitement, and on fire with the need to know even more about the science topics that they played with. As a teacher myself, I can tell all of the time and care that Dr. Erica gives to crafting her lessons, from detailed vocabulary to amazing, creative demonstrations and projects. To kids, her classes are big fun. I can’t wait to hear what they did and, each week when I listen to my son’s account, I learn a little something, too! Thanks for teaching us all, Dr. Erica!

    Dr Erica’s camps are just so much fun! My kids always come home with something they are proud to have built with their own hands, and new thoughts and questions to share about science. My kids are experiencing science as an exploratory, curiosity-driven, hands-on pursuit which belongs to kids as much as to adults. Plus Dr Erica is an amazing role model. We are so happy to have her classes to look forward to on Mondays!
