At Unlimited Hands On Science our mission is to place science in the palm of your hands! Through our exciting activities, which are educational, interactive, fun and most importantly Hands-On, we establish a concrete understanding in children of what science is, what it's all about, and how it affects the world around them.
As a part of our program, children in your schools will be introduced to scientific concepts through a combination of engaging experiments, unique demonstrations, and creative Hands-On Projects.
Also, as a bonus, all projects, experiments, and activities are all custom built to meet South Carolina State Science Standards.
"Only 16 percent of American high school seniors are proficient in mathematics and interested in a STEM career. Even among those who do go on to pursue a college major in the STEM fields, only about half choose to work in a related career. The United States is falling behind internationally, ranking 25th in mathematics and 17th in science among industrialized nations. In our competitive global economy, this situation is unacceptable."
Hands-on learning is the most effective form of learning. We emphasize hands-on learning because it is the most effective form of learning. Dating back to Edgar Dale’s Cone of Experience, many recent studies have repeatedly validated that students retain the most of what they learn when they learn by doing. During the 1960s, Dale theorized that learners retain more information by what they “do” as opposed to what is “heard”, “read” or “observed”. His research led to the development of the Cone of Experience (Dale, E. 1969. Audiovisual Methods in Teaching. NY: Dryden Press). Since then, several studies have found that students, and in fact people in general, are more likely to remember what they do.
Unlimited Hands-On Science is an organization full of dedicated individuals who all want to get children inspired and interested in both science and the world around them. When kids start using their imagination for questions such as 'why is the sky blue?' or 'how do birds fly?' we are here to provide answers.
"Molecular" Maegan and "Beaker" Billy together have developed a love for Science that has allowed them to travel around the Midlands and beyond for over 10 years, uncovering the mysteries of science and sharing it with children. With these two as a tag-team-special it's always a surprise what the duo is mixing up!
