After-School Classes


Bionerds offers fun and hands-on biology workshops for kids.  Our curriculum includes vast topics of biology such as insects, plants, human, genetics, microorganisms, and more.  The children will experience up close and personal with the living organisms studied, perform biology activities and experiments, dissections, and handle laboratory equipment and tools, such as microscopes.  We have been offering our programs through some of Diocese of OC schools, many cities/home associations, and many school districts in Orange County.  We are excited to be at St. Junipero Serra Catholic school for the first time.  

Our teachers have college degrees in Biology or related sciences, some even have graduate degrees.  We are honored to be chosen the Best Science/Tech Camp for two years in a row from 2015-2017 by the Parenting OC Magazine families.  We are also chosen as one of the Coolest After-Class programs in the Country by the Red Tricycle website.
