Fall 2019 Classes 

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-1
$200 (8 sessions)

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

STEAM Lab 202

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. (This class is not a continuation to STEAM Lab 101. Anyone who loves STEAM can take this class!)

 

Grades: 1-2

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
$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”. 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: 2-3
