After School Program Teaches Kids About Zombies

Zombie science...it's a concept that students at West Middle School examined today.

The students studied science with a cultural investigation of zombies in history.

This educational experience, hosted by The Discovery Center, included an exploration of decomposition and neuroscience.

The students learned this by exploring the human brain.

It's all part of The Discovery Center's STEAM afters school programming.

"Our program is called STEAM and STEAM is STEM plus the arts, so each week we have a new theme that would get kids excited about science, technology, engineering and math, infused with the arts," said Donna Jones-Wright, Program Director at The Discovery Center.

Zombie science is one of six programs that The Discovery Center's STEAM program puts on.

Nearly 100 students have signed up for the after school program at West Middle School.
