Classes Kick-Off in 1 Week!

Did your child have a great experience in their last class or camp? Time and space are in short supply to sign up for our upcoming Developing and Advanced level classes. We have a fantastic lineup of after-school classes this fall to keep them learning and having fun! We have 4 different classes to choose from in Jackson County for youth enrolled in grades 7-12.

All programs offered by the Shop Rat Foundation are hands-on and project-based; presenting students with an opportunity to explore and engage in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and discover potential career paths in a unique and fun way.

Don't miss your chance! The Shop Rat Developing Level class will not be available again until next fall and our Advanced Level classes are 30 weeks long (meaning no spring registration).

Feel free to contact Kelly or Rachael at with any questions.
