The University of Guam College of Natural & Applied Sciences, in collaboration with the University of Hawaii at Manoa’s College of Tropical Agriculture & Human Resources’ GENE-ius Day Program, is establishing a children’s science program called, “Guam Gene-ius.” The Hawai‘i program was initiated and nurtured to excellence by Dr Ania Wieczorek.
Guam Gene-ius will encourage young students to more fully explore the world of science and help foster critical thinking and problem-solving skills while building an overall passion for science. Once the program gets going, students can enroll in a series of classes that will run every-other-week on Saturday. Each Saturday session will cover fun and exciting topics representing a wide range of science disciplines. Students will engage in hands-on experiments that will encourage scientific thinking.
Guam Gene-ius’ first trial run on Saturday, April 22, Earth Day. A repeat of the first class maybe April 29 (if needed). Then, there will be a break while the main program is developed.
The lab will be covering the topic of cells and will be taught in a college laboratory setting.
