Q: How will the TndrBOX instructor be able to teach Kindergarten through 2nd grade all in one class?
TndrBOX has held workshops in museums, preschools and elementary schools where the children's ages have ranged from preschool to 11 year olds. The enrichment program is built to address the needs of children from K-4. Our program is designed to introduce science to children through simple scientific concepts and question-based discovery.
