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.
In this class, students work with an acting coach to develop skills related to speaking confidently in front of others through spontaneity and creative physical and verbal games and exercises. The class has incorporates both comedy and serious interaction to develop a studentâ€™s sense of awareness and interaction with others.
STEAM Lab 101
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.
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 STEAMArt, students work on creative projects that emphasize these design foundations. This class can be adapted to any grade.
This class integrates investigations of living and extinct species through hands-on activities related to the science of paleontology, following the course of life on earth. While we know young students appreciate learning about dinosaurs, in this class students also perform experiments in model excavation, create and examine fossils, and learn about survival and extinction of species. Students will learn how a hypothesis becomes a theory and how theories relate to our understanding of dinosaurs. All classes involve hands-on projects.
This class embraces the â€œMakerâ€ theme that has inspired maker spaces around the world as well as the Maker Fair. Maker classes are where kids create their own working models, games and gadgets using raw and recycled materials and basic engineering and technology. Students use tools and must be able to follow safety directions and work well individually.
