Winter 2020 Classes 

Curiologist: FUNomenal Physics 

In this unit of Curiologist, students will learn about physics through experimentation & demonstration. The class is designed to teach an appreciation for how things move (or not move) and the science behind it all. Students learn about things that fly, shoot, drop, float and explode all through hands on model building and testing.

 

Grades: K-1
Mondays: 3:15-4:15
$200 (8 sessions)

SCRATCH Animation

Students will be introduced to logic of coding and programming through SCRATCH, the coding language developed by M.I.T. For students who have learned some basic Scratch, this session helps them continue their skill-building to develop more sophisticated animations using the Scratch programming interface

 

Grades: 1-3
Mondays: 3:15-4:15
$200 (8 sessions)

YO! You’re Human!

You know what it’s like to run, jump, talk, think, hear and listen to your heart beat. But how does it all work? In this class, we will explore the science of human physiology through a series of projects and activities that examine the major systems and looks at how our bodily systems work together. Projects include activities to illustrate how our bodies use water, visualizing how your skin works, DNA and measuring your own lung capacity.

 

Grades: 3-5
Mondays: 3:15-4:15
$200 (8 sessions)

Intro to Robotics

This class introduces students to basic robotics and programming using platforms such as Ozobots™, LEGO™ and Edison™ programmable robots. Beginning with simple instructions using optical bar codes and scanning, ­­students learn to program devices to follow instructions. As the class progresses, students learn how to program their devices using a software interface on a computer.

 

Grades: K-2
Tuesdays: 3:15-4:15
$200 (8 sessions)

Global Mythology

Students will learn about common myths from around the world and explore the messages and learn about the characters. The myths will come from Greece, Ireland, Native Americans, Africa, China, The Middle East, Scandinavia, Egypt and more. Each class with create and craft an artifact from the stories they cover.

 

Grades: 1-2
Tuesdays: 3:15-4:15
$200 (8 sessions)

Curious Engineer: NASA Science

In the Curious Engineers: NASA Engineering unit, projects will focus on the engineering innovation related to NASA missions. Aerospace engineering projects include principles of flight in design projects, technologies related to space exploration, robotics, temperature and other elements of space exploration.

 

Grades: 3-5
Tuesdays: 3:15-4:15
$200 (8 sessions)

STEAM Lab 101

This is our introduction to STEAM class where students get a taste of a variety of themes including life sciences, engineering, mathematics and technology. The class introduces students to the concept of exploration through experimentation, hands-on labs and observation.  Several classes provide a hands-on project some of which will be taken home at the end of class.

 

Grades: K-2
Thursdays: 3:15-4:15
$200 (8 sessions)

Coding with SCRATCH 

Students will be introduced to logic of coding and programming through SCRATCH, the coding language developed by M.I.T. For students who have learned some basic Scratch, this session helps them continue their skill-building to develop more sophisticated animations using the Scratch programming interface.

 

Grades: 3-5
