Hands On Science


Summer Registration

Montgomery Co. MD Programs

Hands On Science started in Montgomery County in 1980 as a community based science enrichment program. In the fall of 1982, the Montgomery County Council of PTAs (MCCPTA) and its nonprofit corporation, Educational Programs, Inc. (EPI) adopted the Hands On Science programs as one of its offerings. Any Montgomery County PTA can participate in these programs by identifying a volunteer/chairman at their school.

Students in private schools in Montgomery County can also participate in Hands On Science classes through Hands On Science Outreach (HOSO) - the nonprofit organization established to accommodate requests beyond Montgomery County public schools.

Please visit Kids Programs on this website for complete descriptions of our school year and summer programs. The Hands On Science/HOSO curriculum supports local and national standards for teaching, content, and community involvement.

Hands On Science programs also provide training and job opportunities for parents, teachers, graduate students, retirees and other qualified adults to share the fun of science. Classroom teachers may earn CPD credits.

Join us to bring more science enrichment to the children in your schools.
