The University of Guam College of Natural & Applied Sciences, in collaboration with the University of Hawaii at Manoa’s College of Tropical Agriculture & Human Resources’ GENE-ius Day Program, is establishing a children’s science program called, "Guam Gene-iuses.” 

Guam Gene-iuses will encourage young students to explore more fully the world of science and help foster critical thinking and problem-solving skills while building an overall passion for science.  Once the program gets going, students can enroll in a series of classes that will run every-other-week on Saturday. Each Saturday session will cover fun and exciting topics representing a wide range of science disciplines. Students will engage in hands-on experiments that will encourage scientific thinking.

Guam Gene-iuses’ first trial run is on Saturday, April 22, Earth Day.  A repeat of the first class will go on for the next 1 or 2 consecutive Saturdays (April 29 and May 6) as needed.
