Curiologists – Actions and Reactions
Curiologists is themed “ACTIONS and REACTIONS“. Each week Curiologists perform an investigation into a scientific principle through hands-on, inquiry-based experiments. Curiologists work in small groups to perform experiments in a lab-like setting, record their findings in visual and illustrative ways. This class gives a hands on approach to the making and mixing of chemical reactions we experience everyday, 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 how fun science truly is.
Learn to code using the curriculum of code.org, a leading online developer of programs for educators. This class will introduce or refresh basic ideas such as repeat loops and events. Students will develop their understanding of algorithms, nested loops, while loops, conditionals, and events. Lessons on digital citizenship are also included. This course is crafted to build a strong foundation of basic concepts before opening up to a wide range of new and exciting topics.
This class embraces the “Maker” theme that has inspired maker spaces around the world as well as the Maker Faire. Maker classes are where kids create their own working models, games and gadgets using raw and recycled materials and basic engineering and technology. Students design and make their own creations using their own vibrant creativity, inspired by open challenges, models and experimentation. Some projects involve using a computer interface (such as creating a physical game that is hooked to a computer for scoring). Students use tools and must be able to follow safety directions and work well individually.
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.
