Rimma Shikh Educator and Science popularizer for kids
Before coming to America, Rimma worked as a chemistry teacher in Ukraine. She completed her Master’s Degree in Chemistry from Long Island University and was working as a professor assistant for three years. Her love for science and teaching inspired her to begin a program that includes a challenging and stimulating model of scientific learning, a program that can be a jaw-dropping experience for kids. In today’s world, science plays an increasingly important role as a practical source of technology and as a method of understanding the world around us. An often neglected subject of study, science is very simplistically and boringly taught to children. One of the most important subjects a child can learn is usually their least favorite. This program is intended to be a fun, social, and interactive way to instill a scientific mind in your child, one that through hands-on experiments shows your child what textbooks fail to. It teaches your child to have an open and curious mind when it comes to learning (and who wouldn’t want that).
