Hi Curious Kids and Roslyn After School Program! I’m glad you found the site and I hope you find it helpful. Visit to view your program dates. Check back here for updates on classes and other information.

Today’s Curious Kids electricity programs were a lot of fun! We’ve made great progress in building our robots in the Grades 5 & 6 class. If you won’t be able to make our class on March 29, please let me know with a comment or email me at and we can discuss an alternative plan.

If you have any cool information or pictures about any of our experiments this year, feel free to post or email me and I can post pictures in the blog. Take care, and see you soon!
