Before We Drove Cars, We Rode Animals – Design an Imaginary Animal

A look into the history of animal transportation. In this lesson we will examine the history of animal-based transportation and discover why many cultures rely on machines, examining modern methods of transportation and examine the Pros and Cons. Then students will design their own imaginary animal with characteristics that will meet the transportation needs for their own lives. Suggested ages for this class K-4 grade.

Mercury and The Messenger Mission

Kids will learn about Missions to Mercury and what information was found. They will delve into a computer simulation to learn how to get ready for a Mission to Mars. The main points to be learned are where Mercury is, its importance to scientific research and the data that is being collected from missions that have been sent. After they have completed their missions we will get to play with Galactic Goo, which they get to take home with them. Grades 5-8.

Stop Bullying! An Interactive Group Experience

There are many roles that kids can play. Kids can bully others, they can be bullied, or they may witness bullying. When kids are involved in bullying, they often play more than one role. Sometimes kids may both be bullied and bully others or they may witness other kids being bullied. It is important to understand the multiple roles kids play in order to effectively prevent and respond to bullying. Great way to interact as a group and figure out how they each can help. Grades K-8.

Exploring Jobs in STEM with Hands-On Learning (focus on Animals, Environment and Sports)

This class will focus on the many different jobs that are available within STEM. We will focus on Animals, Environment and Sports. The class will then get to pick out individual experiments to try out, from making a windmill to working on projects to learn about water power and even bridge building. Great beginner class to gauge their interest in the sciences. Grades 3-6

Beginning Coding for Ages 4-6 (9 weeks) – Begins Tuesday, March 28, 5pm-6pm

Kids are never too young to learn how to code. This 9-week series is the first steps for ages 4-6 in providing a solid base for the rest of your child’s computer science education. At the root of all computer science is something called an algorithm. The word “algorithm” may sound like something complicated, but really it’s just a list of instructions that someone can follow to achieve a result. This class gives young children an understanding of basic coding principals.
