a better science enrichment class
Science Education is important, and can give your child the competitive edge for a STEM career later in life in addition to helping them understand their world and the wonder in it. In our science enrichment program, we pair learning with fun for the perfect combination of engagement and education. Students leave class learning 3-5 science keywords each week that align with NGS standards.
Each enrichment class includes:
- High Energy Instruction
- 2 Hands On Science Experiments
- 2 Science Demonstrations by the Professor
- 3 Science Keywords and a Takehome Keyword Sticker
- A Takehome Science Experiment
the keys to learning
The key to our specialized curriculum is that it’s designed to engage students in a short period of time while still leaving them with a concrete understanding of important scientific concepts and ideas.
In this fast-paced world of high-speed Internet connections and rapid uploading, we offer classes where we can rapidly upload information straight into students’ minds (well, maybe not literally…but…wait, maybe someday!).
We help kids be:
- Problem Solvers
- Logical Thinkers
a hands on approach
Kinesthetic Learning is a learning style in which learning takes place by kids physically doing something, rather than listening to a lecture or reading from a book. People refer to us as “do-ers”, and we feel we have earned the name.
The 80/20 rule
Kids must be actively doing and experiment, designing an machine or actually building it for 80% of the time.
The other 20% is filled with demonstration and procedures designed to get kids used to the scientific method.
frequently asked questions
Where are your after school enrichment classes held?
We bring our awesome after school classes to schools, parks, community centers and homes all over Los Angeles. For our after school programs and workshops, we just need a room to fit up to 14 students. For our Science classes, we do prefer a sink, but it isn’t required. For our Lego classes, we prefer a hard surface (no chairs or desks required!), but it is not required.
How doI get Professor Egghead after school enrichment at my school?
Simple! Give us a call at 818-856-3996 and we will give you all the information you need to start a Professor Egghead program at your school. If you are a school administrator or coordinator, it’s as easy as 1-2-3.

If you are a parent looking to bring us into your school, we offer free classes for parent who connect us with their schools if we do end up running classes. Give us a ring at 818-856-3996 or email us at [email protected]
What times are available for your enrichment programs?
Whatever time you’d like. We don’t set specific dates/times for our workshops. Instead, we let you choose. Any time works for us, although we prefer multiple classes to be back to back with as little time between the two classes as possible to make it easier on our Professors. We are usually available any day of the week, and can book on short notice if needed. Give us a ring!
Who are your professors and how are they traineD?
Our Professors, all trained by the Academy, are enthusiastic, experienced and knowledgeable. Every Professor that goes out into the world to spread science has gone through a strict hiring process and passed a thorough background check. Our training process includes 3 training and observed classes, 4 online training modules, background checks, observed classes, and multiple rounds of feedback before anyone steps foot in a classroom.
There is a reason we are known for our Professors – they love science and we love them. Ask us if you have any preferences on Professor for your school to see if we can accommodate.
What do you do in enrichment classes and workshops?
All of our classes and workshops are based off of the kinesthetic model, or learning by doing. We pack each lesson with hands on experiments and fun demonstrations with student interaction that teach keywords and scientific or engineering concepts through the action.
All of our science classes end with a takehome and keyword stickers for students, and all of our engineering classes teach real engineering concepts each week and focus on designing, building, and testing creations.
What are the different classes and workshops you offer?
This is our specialty! Because we focus so heavily on science and engineering, we have a lot of curriculum. For our after school science classes, we offer 6 different modules that rotate seasonaly for our science, and 3 for our engineering. Each session Fall, Winter, Spring, we switch to a new module, so a student can take our science classses for two full years without ever repeating a lesson!
For our Workshops, we offer all of these lessons as individual workshops, which means we have over 60 science lessons and 30 engineering lessons to choose from for in school learning. We custom fit our curriculum and lesson to your standards, so you get to pick the topic!
what is an egghead id card and degree?
Just as adults are challenged with solving the deepest mysterious in the universe in higher education, so to are your Eggheads when they attend our after school classes. Therefore we must award them with an Egghead Degree in the field of their study. Egghead Degrees are distributed to all students who attend our classes when they graduate the last lesson of the session.
We are a church/synagogue/special location with special needs for attire or procedure. Can you accommodate us?
Absolutely. We are very respectful of all cultures, ideas, and people. We work with Catholic schools, Orthodox Jewish schools, high and low income communities, gifted and special needs students, and we can bring science to everyone.
If you have specific requirements for attire or customs, such as no handshaking, knee length skirts, special training such as Virtus, or more, we can accomodate you with no questions asked and are very familiar with many of these customs and requirements.
