Fall 2019 Classes 

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: 1-2
Tuesdays: 2:45-3:45
$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: 1-2
Tuesdays: 2:45-3:45
$200 (8 sessions)

Robotics & Programming

This class utilizes multiple platforms to teach the principles of robotics. Students learn how machines can be programmed to follow instructions using Ozobots and Edison Robotics with LEGO™.  Both platforms have a programmable interface as well as basic optical based programming routines. Over eight sessions students design exercises for their devices in order to complete challenges using creative problem solving through programming routines. Laptops provided as needed. 

 

Grades: 3-5
Tuesdays: 3:15-4:15
$200 (8 sessions)

YO! You’re Human

You know what it’s like to run, jump, talk, think, read, see, hear and listen to your heart beat. But how does it all work? In this class, we will explore the science of human physiology through a series of projects and activities that examine the major systems and looks at how our bodily systems work together. Projects include activities to illustrate how our bodies use water, visualizing how your skin works, DNA and measuring your own lung capacity. YO! You’re human! Let’s learn how that works.

 

Grades: 3-5
Tuesdays: 3:15-4:15
$200 (8 sessions)

Global Mythology 

Students will learn about common myths from around the world and explore the messages and learn about the characters. The myths will come from Greece, Ireland, Native Americans, Africa, China, The Middle East, Scandinavia, Egypt and more. Each class with create and craft an artifact from the stories they cover.

Grades: 1-2
Thursdays: 2:45-3:45
$200 (8 sessions)

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: 1-2
Thursdays: 2:45-3:45
$200 (8 sessions)

Curious Engineer: NASA

In the Curious Engineers: NASA Engineering unit, projects will focus on the engineering innovation related to NASA missions. Aerospace engineering projects include principles of flight in design projects, technologies related to space exploration, robotics, temperature and other elements of space exploration.

 

Grades: 3-5
Thursdays: 3:15-4:15
$200 (8 sessions)

Creative Technologist

A “MAKER” style class that uses electronic components, such as circuits, small motors, batteries, small LED bulbs, and other parts to produce fun take-home projects.  This class relies on raw, upcycled and recycled materials and teaches the basics of electricity and circuits.

 

Grades: 3-5
Thursdays: 3:15-4:15
