We provide ALL equipment and materials in this supply intensive, educational experience. Upon completion of the field trip, students receive a cool science certificate and every program provides a create-n-keep experiment. Teachers will receive a resource packet, including a review of the standards covered, worksheets and more!
Science Fun For Everyone, SFFE (formerly High Touch - High Tech TRI, Science Made Fun!) is extremely excited about transitioning to a non-profit organization!
Our ultimate goal is to lower the fees so more children can benefit from these “Fun and Educational Science Experiences”.
Nothing has changed but the name. Our true passion is to provide teachers and students with Fun, Educational and Convenient In-school, science field trips. We will transform your classroom into a hands-on, Living Laboratory!
Kids become Scientists and learn by doing the actual experiments.
