Michigan Tech started hosting after school science programs for middle and elementary school students.

Michigan Tech's After School Science and Engineering Program gives young students an opportunity to dip their feet in easy and fun experiments over the course of 6 weeks.

The class runs three different sessions for fall, winter, and spring, with this sessions 2nd through 5th grade class learning more about the science of the snow that falls in the Keweenaw.

"We're learning about the chemistry and physics of snow, what makes a snowflake, the properties of snow such as insulation. Right now our students are building insulators, we tested insulators last week and now they're engineering their own and we're going to test them later today," said Brian Doughty,

For parents who are interested registration, that begins near the end of February with classes beginning in the middle of March.
