Winter 2020 Classes 

Life on Planet Earth 

This class introduces students to the evolutionary history of life on Earth, from the earliest organisms to the dinosaur extinction. This is a new class offering all new projects that allow students to imagine the timeline of living history while exploring some large scale replicas of dinosaur fossils, a physical timeline, and games that exemplify the role of predators, animal evolution and adaptation, etc.  Students make projects that emulate these lessons while deepening their appreciation for our living planet.

 

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

Da Vinci Outrageous Machines

Students examine the life of Leonardo Da Vinci, the scientist, inventor and artist. Students use Leonardo’s notebooks as inspiration and each week take a theme and draw out an invention of their own in their Da Vinci-style notebooks. They then make a model of their own invention using new and re purposed materials. In this class every idea is given life as we examine Leonardo’s inventions and the ones that are still used today.

Students of Hogwarts

This class will have a dedicated Students of Hogwarts theme and 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. Projects will be themed around the Students of Hogwarts classes such as potions, herbology, care of magical creatures and wand making.

 

Grades: 3-5
Tuesdays: 3:15-4:15

Coding with SCRATCH

Students will be introduced to logic of coding and programming through SCRATCH, the coding language developed by M.I.T. For students who have learned some basic Scratch, this session helps them continue their skill-building to develop more sophisticated animations using the Scratch programming interface.

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!)

Recycling Matters

Students convert re-purposed materials including books, CDs, electronics, and other materials into individual works of sculpture, books into shelf art, and mixed media assemblages and collages using cloth, found objects and other materials. This creative class teaches the values of recycling along with imaginative thinking and creating.

Great Inventors 

Students learn about a wide range of Great Inventors and their inventions and then using raw materials, in the spirit of the Maker Movement, make their own inventions inspired by the inventors and inventions discussed in each class. Marie Curie, Whitcomb Judson, Ada Lovelace, Nikola Tesla are just some of the inventors the class will cover to seek inspiration from during the term. Curiosity and creativity are celebrated and explored in this class.

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.
