Learning through Experimentation Awareness and Demonstration


If you have your own idea for an event, let us know!



The L.E.A.D. program is dedicated to promoting chemistry through science education and awareness at the local level, through programs at the University of Virginia (such as BLAST), as well as within classrooms across the state of Virginia. Graduate and undergraduate students perform exciting demonstrations and facilitate classroom science experiments for elementary and middle school students in the Charlottesville area and beyond through hands-on, inquiry-based activities. All lessons are developed to be in accordance with the Science Standards of Learning for Virginia Public Schools.
