Up, Down & Around!
You know the world is round (or is it?), right? In this indoor/outdoor class, weâ€™ll learn how to find our place on the big globe and figure out where we are. Are we north? South? East? West? Weâ€™ll trek our way around the woods to learn compass skills and how to find our way in a wooded area. And weâ€™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? (Outdoor/Indoor classroom).
Intro to Robotics
This class introduces students to basic robotics and programming using platforms such as Ozobotsâ„¢, LEGOâ„¢ and Edisonâ„¢ 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.
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. This class can be adapted to any grade.
