Kids love Mr. McChesney's creative teaching methods!

“What does it take to make a child into a scientist? Well, luckily, you don’t have to do anything. Kids are already scientists. They’re better scientists than adults are by a long shot. They’re looking at everything, they’re trying everything -- we just have to preserve that.”
--John McChesney, Founder and Director, Rock-it Science

About Rock-it Science:

Image of Summer Science Camps for Kids in Santa ClaraWe offer our exciting science lessons in a variety of formats. All of them are based on The Seven Secrets of Rock-it Science, a unique teaching method that combines hands-on science with storytelling. Choose the program that’s right for you!

In-Classroom Lessons - Rock-It Science empowers teachers by sending our instructors right into their classrooms to present our science lessons during the regular school day. We provide exciting science enrichment for the students, and the teachers can choose to either participate or just observe. This is more effective than after-school programs, because the classroom teacher can see what the students are learning and can incorporate the Rock-it Science experience into their regular lessons. Available to K-6 classrooms in public and private elementary schools.

Field Trips - For smaller groups (ten to twenty children), schedule an exciting two-to-four-hour field trip to our Santa Clara laboratory classroom. Students get to experience a complete Rock-it Science lesson each hour.

G.A.T.E. Classes - We offer special field trip classes to serve the needs of Gifted and Talented students.

Teacher Training Videos - Teachers can learn how to present Rock-it Science lessons in their own classrooms. It's easier than you think! These videos show actual classes with real students doing the lessons. Teacher Guides are also available.

Home School - Homeschool parents have found Rock-It Science to be an incredible resource for innovative and creative science instruction for their children. Classes are held once a week in our laboratory-classroom in Santa Clara, CA.

Summer Camps - We offer a wide variety of half-day summer camps, held at our laboratory classroom in Santa Clara.
