 At NUTS ABOUT SCIENCE we offer science enrichment activities that are educational and FUN!!

 NUTS ABOUT SCIENCE began in 2006 as a 5th grade fundraiser for Silver Springs Elementary school where  Jennifer Price's daughter was attending.  Since then, we have grown to four instructors, two states and many schools  and organizations. We service Southeastern Michigan and  Southern California.
