Droids, Drones, & Superbots
The work of the future is moving towards automation, and the role of the superhero is no different. In this course, you’ll program droids and conceptualize superbot technology “more powerful than a locomotive” in order to fight crime and save humanity. Concepts covered include coding (both digital and analog – we have some fun low-tech exercises, too!), structural engineering, human physiology, and the design process.
Chemistry of Wizardry:
Chemistry of Wizardry (Mar. 18-May 13)
Being a muggle is so over-rated! Using household products, students will learn and perform experiments that are so cool, you’d think they were magic. More than mystical explosions, this course encourages higher-level thinking as students use quantitative and nonverbal reasoning to understand the physical and chemical properties which surround us.
Get in touch with your magical side, and continue to spell-bind your friends and family for years to come as all of these experiments are able to be done at home (under adult supervision).
STEAM Explorers:
Our STEAM Explorers after-school program is a laboratory of engaging learner experiences designed to captivate, engage, and challenge each student. Hands-on activities in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) can include coding and programming challenges, architectural and engineering design, stop motion animation and improv, live action role-play, science experiments to teach principles of chemistry, physics, neuroscience, and mathematics, visual arts and aesthetics, the science of food and taste, and fun with mathematics.
This content-driven, semester-long program allows students to explore and integrate STEAM concepts in a wide variety of mini-projects. Classes are designed to introduce, reinforce, and integrate STEAM principles to stimulate divergent and critical thinking. Activities are modular and FUN!
