Chemistry Rocks: Chem for Beginners!
Chemistry is the study of matter. Matter is the word scientists give to everything and anything that you can touch, feel, smell or see. Chemistry Cats will introduce young learners to the elements of the periodic table, compounds, reactions and more, with demonstrations, hands on investigations and inquiry based learning. Chemistry is everything and everything is awesome!

The San Ramon Valley Education Foundation (SRVEF) is proud to introduce Imagineering, a beyond school enrichment program for SRVUSD students in grades 4 to 7. The goal of Imagineering is to spark student interest in choosing STEM classes in middle and high school with the ultimate goal of identifying more STEM majors who will ultimately become highly sought after talent in the US corporate workplace.
The program consists of several themes, each of which is taught in four (4) one-hour classes. These courses are designed to provide a serious, but enjoyable, science experience to supplement the science exposure elementary and middle school students receive at school. Currently these classes are targeted for beginners, but as more children cycle through the program, there will be level 2 and 3 classes offered in these content areas as well.
The curriculum for each theme is developed by a master teacher, who also teaches the class. Each class is supported by student mentors, middle and high school students who are knowledgeable in the content and skills involved in the program. Imagineering is a hands-on program with students learning practical application within each of the themes.
