Activity Kits

Science Circus Activity Kits are designed to take hands-on activities on the go! Whether at an after-school program or at home, these kits include directions, prompts and materials lists for a variety of engaging activities. Currently, Whittier College students plan and implement these kits with two after-school programs. Each month, one kit is made available for pick-up through the Whittier Public Library.  

Safety First!

We at the Science Circus Whittier Project want to make sure young learners and their families can fully and safely enjoy our resources. Please read directions carefully and follow any safety considerations provided. Further, all resources are designed to be used under adult supervision with children five years and older.
