WEC 2013  Programs Booklet CoverEach presentation, which includes hands-on learning activities, is correlated to the SC science standards. Most programs are offered free of charge to Spartanburg County and Greer area young people in public, private, or home school groups!

Programs not covered by our current grants require a small fee. Due to the high demand of our free programs, we ask that you limit your requests to two free programs per grade level.
