Da Vinci STEAM Workshop
This class focuses on how imagination is the basis for science and the two have always worked together to create some of the greatest ideas in history. Students examine the life of Leonardo DaVinci, the scientist, inventor and artist and learn how he integrated this kind of thinking in his life and work. Students use Leonardo’s notebooks as inspiration, and each week take a theme and draw out an invention of their own in their Da Vinci-style notebooks. They then make a model of their invention using new and re-purposed materials.
Coding With SCRATCH
In this class, students will be introduced to logic of coding and programming through SCRATCH, the coding language developed by M.I.T. for children. Through use of a graphical, drag and drop interface, students learn how to create simple programs that are fun, animated and personalized. We follow the Creative Computing curriculum introduced by Harvard Graduate School of Education. Each class contains a separate lesson in Scratch and students can share their work with their families at the end of class.
Web Coding Workshop
Learn basic web coding skills and create a website of your own in this 8-session class that teaches fundamental web architecture, online tools for creating websites, and basic coding using HTML. The class covers how content is arranged in a website, basic site components and image management. It then moves on to creating pages from scratch using HTML in a simple editor.
