The Jefferson School’s Science Saturday is set for 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept. 29 on the school’s 43-acre Georgetown campus, 22051 Wilson Road.

More than a dozen organizations will partner with TJS to provide families an opportunity to engage in educational activities for all ages highlighting all types of science, from robotics and solar viewing to wetland monitoring and the science of sound.

This free event is open to the public.

“We started Science Saturday in the spring of 2016 as a family science and engineering night for TJS family and friends only,” said Head of School Connie Hendricks. “It was so successful we decided to expand it to a Saturday event open to all. Our first fall event was so well attended we then decided to do it twice per year.”

The Jefferson School’s campus is an ecological haven with a forest, two ponds, nature trails, a greenhouse and garden area, five resident goats, chickens and bees, but Science Saturday affords attendees more opportunities to explore and discover new things.

This year’s Science Saturday will feature programs and activities from Abbott’s Mill Nature Center, the MERR Institute, Makin’ Music Delaware and others, including the Brandywine Valley SPCA with special guests.
