LEARN Science and Math Club
Learn Science & Math Club is a cooperative, not-for-profit learning club based in Kansas City, MO. Our mission is to provide kids with rich science and math experiences.
Kids who play more, learn more; so, we make fun a part of everything we do. And, we do a lot! From August through February, we study engineering and physics by competing in the international FIRST Tech Challenge, the FIRST LEGO League and the Junior FIRST LEGO League. From Febuary to May, we conduct chemistry experiments, build all sorts of wacky machines, participate in science fairs, watch the stars, go on archaeology digs and much more.
