Immersing Students in Science & Technology of Our Community
Hands On Gainesville:
Scientists seeking to create a new generation of problem-solvers one community at a time.
We make the connections that promote doing science instead of viewing science.
We reveal the science in sites around town by linking community-contributed, hands-on activities that teach through guided observation and problem-solving practices.
We mentor others and work with students to design their own exhibits, thus providing a real-world network beyond the classroom through which students contribute back to the community.
