The experiences are designed to allow the student an opportunity to explore a chosen topic in depth. Parents are encouraged to let the students make the choice of activity (the choice must correlate with the teacher's recommendation). There are no tests or grades, and the settings are meant to be informal work or laboratory sessions. The interaction between the staff of professional educators and curious, eager young minds adds excitement to the activities.
