The Spring Session for Wee Curious Ones is cancelled for Saturday, April 13. 

 

Hands-on learning that is fun, fun and more fun (and has loads of learning to boot)!

What to do when our youngest tinkerers crave the same kind of exploration they see their older siblings doing? We’ve started WEE CURIOUS ONES – a program just for preschoolers.  Learning how much fun you can have through tinkering and building is so much fun, especially during the winter months when they are indoors more than not. This Saturday class is designed to turn  them on to activities that encourage playful curiosity while working with natural, recycled and new materials to explore their world through some hands-on projects, games, movement that explore the way things work around them.

This class meets 6 times on Saturday from 10:00-10:50 AM.  Our final class will include a short showcase of what we’ve learned.  Class dates are:  April 13, May 4, 11, 18, June 8, 15

Fee: $150 includes enrollment fee and all materials

Hands-on learning that is fun, fun and more fun (and has loads of learning to boot)!

In the Saturday Tinkerers we teach fundamental engineering concepts but with the spirit of freedom that encourages kids to use their own creativity and imagination in coming up with their own models and toys. They’ll learn some circuitry, the basic principles of logical programming and the creative “glue” that holds it all together and makes it fun to use.

This class meets 6 times on Saturday from 12:00-1:00.   Class starts on April 27.  You may take a trial class at the first session.

Session Dates: April 27, May 4, 11, 18, June 1, 8

Fee: $150.00 includes enrollment fee and all materials.  You may sign up for a trial class (free), below.

Each week the Young Tinkerers work on a different project that encourages hands-on learning in science, technology, engineering and integrated arts. Our projects vary week to week and many have a take home component.  Some themes:

  • Robotics
  • Coding
  • Flying Machines
  • Marine Engineering
  • Our Brain
  • Make a Circuit

A Pre-Summer, Pre-School Camp for ages 4-5!

This Curiologist Camp is for PreK students who are looking for a fun way to learn new things while they are off between the end of school and the beginning of summer. This short and sweet mini-camp runs for 5 mornings per week, for 2 weeks in June. You can sign up for one week or both, as you like.

Every day of the camp runs from 9:00 AM-12:00 PM.  This is a drop-off camp with a guided program in science, arts, engineering, maker projects and FUN. This program is an educational, hands-on program using the best of our programming suited for this special age group. Students in this age group enjoy pretending to be scientists  investigating their world and that is where our Curiologist program originated!

 

The Curiologist program is where our young students get a taste of a variety of science themes including life as a scientist, engineer, geologist, chemist, paleontologist and more.  The class introduces kids to the concept of exploration through experimentation, hands-on labs and observation. Some classes provide hands-on projects some of which may be taken home at the end of class. Over the last 5 years, hundreds of students have become CURIOLOGISTS!
