Fall 2019 Classes 

Curiologist: Forces of Nature 

In this unit of the Curiologist classes, students will learn environmental studies through experiments, labs, demonstrations and models. The class is designed to teach an appreciation for the local environment and the eco-systems around them. Students learn about water and soil, as well as the flora and fauna of the local environment. Labs include water testing, sources of energy, pollution and its effects, habitats, effects of climate change and marine life and eco-systems. 

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

Beginner Makers

This class embraces the “Maker” theme that has inspired maker spaces around the world as well as the Maker Fair. Maker classes are where kids create their own working models, games and gadgets using raw and recycled materials and basic engineering and technology. 

 

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

STEAM UP!

An overall STEAM module for grades 3-5. Involves topics in chemistry, physics, engineering, computing & technology, and life sciences. Each class involves a challenge to solve and a project to complete. Each class has a “driving question” to solve through inquiry and solution design.

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

STEAM Museum

Students will learn about different styles in art throughout the centuries and the scientific and mathematical reasons of how they are composed and why they’re so compelling visually. They will create projects to emulate artists such as Leonardo DaVinci and his famous “Mona Lisa” and Bridget Reilly and the op art movement. The course will culminate in the creation of their own original work, and learning how to write a tailored artist statement to express their masterpiece’s meaning. 

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

Beginner Creative Technologist

A “MAKER” style class that uses electronic components, such as circuits, small motors, batteries, small LED bulbs, and other parts to produce fun take-home projects.  This class relies on raw, upcycled and recycled materials and teaches the basics of electricity and circuits.

 

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

STEAM Art

Line, shape, texture, space, form, value, and color are the principal elements of art and design. These elements are enhanced by qualities of harmony, balance, scale, contrast, randomness, and rhythm. In STEAM Art, students work on creative projects that emphasize these design foundations. 

 

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

Toy Makers Workshop

A “MAKER” style class where the emphasis is on clever use of everyday items to teach principals of physics through fun, take home projects. The class is inspired by Arwind Gupta’s “Toys from Trash: Hands on Science” program. Learn more about Arwind Gupta here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCT7EcU7rC44DiS3RkfZzZMg

 

Grades: K-2
Thursdays: 3:15-4:15

Coding FUNdamentals

Using the code.org educator curriculum, we work with students to learn the concepts of programmatic thinking. Lessons are both computer-based and “unplugged,” i.e., games and puzzles that are designed to provide the foundation for programming. Students work over several weeks to achieve a basic understanding of programming techniques.

 

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

Robotics & Programming

This class utilizes multiple platforms to teach the principles of robotics. Students learn how machines can be programmed to follow instructions using Ozobots and Edison Robotics with LEGO™.  Both platforms have a programmable interface as well as basic optical based programming routines. Over eight sessions students design exercises for their devices in order to complete challenges using creative problem solving through programming routines. 

Grades: 3-5
Thursdays: 3:15-4:15
