Science Enrichment Programs

Welcome to Merlin's World of Science Laboratory

Our Mission: to demystify the seemingly complex world of science!


Through an interactive, hands-on approach, Dr. John Ullrich inspires young minds to explore the wonderful universe of science. All experiments and lessons are developed according to the American Chemical Society, and guidelines follow the Journal of Chemical Education.

Inside Merlin's laboratory students will be exposed to a vast array of scientific concepts. In his innovative approach, John is dedicated to providing the opportunity for children ages 5-13 to engage in the wonders that science offers.

Younger Wizards (5-8 years old) will participate in exciting experiments and will receive a Young Wizards Certificate upon course completion.
