What's New and Happening At the Leaders Institute
LINKS, which stands for Lessons to Inspire and Nurture Kids in Science, was co-founded by high school students Asha Dees and Alicia Guevara, in partnership with the KID Museum, to bring hands-on science experiments and projects to your home. Because COVID-19 has kept students indoors and away from classrooms, LINKS was designed to “link” curious and creative kids to enriching and educational experiences in the sciences, from making slime and oobleck to constructing Rube-Goldberg Machines and deciphering coded messages! Each section of our website has activities geared towards children of different age groups. We also indicate if any activities need parent supervision or assistance. Check it out at linksonline.org and for more information, feel free to email us at info.LINKS@yahoo.com. You can also follow us on instagram (@linksproject2020) where Irina Fraga will keep you updated on our latest lessons and activities!
