Spring 2020 Classes 

Curiologist: Actions & Reactions 

The Actions and Reactions unit gives a hands on approach to the making and mixing of chemical reactions we experience every day, only this time we learn why they happen and then see it for ourselves through experimentation. From bubbles to slime, invisible ink to oxidation, these kids will get down and messy and experience the wonder that is the chemical properties of common elements.

Recycling Matters

Students convert re-purposed materials including books, CDs, electronics, and other materials into individual works of sculpture, books into shelf art, and mixed media assemblages and collages using cloth, found objects and other materials.

Robotics Design Challenge 

If you like learning how robotics work you’ll like taking it up a level by solving a weekly design challenge using robotics. Instructors will assign a weekly challenge to a small group of students and they must work together to get their devices to solve that challenge by programming a solution. This class teaches a design based thinking challenge as well as programming using a robotics interface.

Up, Down & Around

You know the world is round (or is it?), right? In this indoor/outdoor class, we’ll learn how to find our place on the big globe and figure out where we are. Are we north? South? East? West? We’ll trek our way around to learn compass skills and how to find our way in a wooded area. And we’ll look to get some big answers like: where does the sun go and why? Why do we have short and long days? How did explorers use stars and other elements of the night sky to get around?

Learn to Code: Using Makecode & Microbit
