Weekend STEAM session for older elementary students who love to tinker, take-apart, design and build and discover the workings of what's around them: from macro to massive. From the big bang to the invisible creatures are living in our environment. Let's explore!
In this class, we get to use our unique space in all its unique, functiional and flexible glory. The Hudson River provides a great backdrop for us and we have ample outdoor space to launch rockets, race solar cars, and blow up an ocassional chemical experiment. This class runs 90 minutes to allow time for both individual and group work as well as some note-keeping.
Each session students participate in hands-on labs and activities that demonstrate key scientific and engineering concepts. All sessions are geared towards hands-on discovery. Some classes will involve using computers to interact with MakeyMakey, Scratch and other coding/programming activities. However, nearly all sessions will involve building or disassembling using hand tools. Each student will keep an interactive notebook of observations and ideas. We encourage students to keep the thinking going with activities they can pursue at home after class is over.
We'll also invite in some special guests to talk about the subjects they're passionate about: chemistry, environmental sciences, medicine, engineering - and let them lead a special activity or two.
The fee of $255 includes a $50 material fee and enrollment for all eight sessions. This class varies from the Electronics, Circuits and Gadgets class in that participants in this class will use any type of material, conduct experiements involving chemical and mechanical properties, learn the principles of physics through projects involving flight and motion, etc. Although there is a technical component, it is a much more free form format. Students in these classes generally like to take part in lessons involving indoor/outdoor space and large and small activities.
