CSI's After School Program (ASP) are filled with interactive activities that will make science exciting. The program gives parents the opportunity to encourage their children to think, as they engage in the exciting hands-on activities, watch spectacular demonstrations, participate in inquiry-based discussions, and more.

Your child will be filled with knowledge and learn to appreciate science as they discover facts of God’s Creation. No extra work to take home, only something special to remember God as our Creator!

The ASP runs concurrently with the local school calendar. There are four quarters which align with the grading periods of your local school. We meet once a week on Wednesdays for eight consecutive weeks.

At Creation Studies Institute we teach the truth of our origins from a creationist’s perspective by, “simply sharing with young and old, God’s wondrous works.”

*CCA Parents: Please drop off registration form at CCA front office. CSI picks up students at the CC information booth at CCA dismissal time. Parents pick up students at the 2701 Bldg. at 5:00 PM.

Texture, like any of the elements of art, can also enhance and support the artist's concept behind the work. Some artists use texture as a major influence on our response to the work. In any work of art, however, texture can draw us in so we spend more time with the work. Students will experiment with a variety of media and materials, including found objects, to create different textures.
