Individual and Small Group Enrichment Programs

Denver Test Prep’s Enrichment Programs provide students with an opportunity to develop a passion for science through hands-on exploration. Students can schedule a single lab (groups only) or complete a full series of personalized STEAM programming. Programs are aimed at students in grades 1-8 and designed for groups of 1-6 students, with labs held at our office or your home.

Don’t see a program that is right for your family? We can build one just for you! Check out our Project Based Learning option at the bottom of this page.

Mad Labs

Through hands-on laboratory investigations, students will mix, fizz, pop, ooze, and slime their way through an exploration of chemistry. Student experiments include lava lamps, boo bubbles, fizz inflators, and slimeology. Get ready for science excitement and investigation with MAD LABS!

This program is designed for mad scientists in 1st through 5th grades. This summer, June 2021 – August 2021, the Mad Labs program will come to you. The Mad Labs program will be held outdoors to ensure the safety of all participants.

Robotics and Circuitry

Engineering, programming, and design come together in this dynamic, personalized STEM program. Students in the Robotics and Circuitry program will learn the basics of circuitry and electricity and use that knowledge to power incredible robotic creations.

This program is designed for mad scientists in 1st through 8th grades. Robotics courses are best in indoor locations.

Project Based Learning

All Grade Levels Project Based Learning (PBL) is an opportunity for your student to pursue their own interests by formulating a rich, driving question, developing a plan to research that question, and finding a platform to communicate their project to a wider audience. PBL puts the student in control! The Denver Test Prep tutor will work with your student to explore their interests and curiosities and develop a customized program build around big or small projects. We’ll start with an initial conversation with the student and family to brainstorm ideals and then move into project design, completion, and communication phases.

Project questions from the past include:

  • What is my energy footprint?
  • How do diseases move through populations?
  • Which lipstick actually lasts longer?
  • Are robots friends or foes?
  • How much should a pizza really cost?
  • Does my cat know its name?
  • Is Lebron James underpaid?
  • What recipe makes the best chocolate chip cookies?
