2018-2019 After School Science and Technology sessions
The 2018-2019 school year includes exciting and challenging designs in flight, telescope construction, circuitry, hydroponics, machine design.wearable technology and LEGO Robotics (LEGO WeDo 2.0).
Classes meet once a week for approximately 60 minutes. We can customize sessions based on your need. Please email or call us for details.
Club SciKidz; Where Science and Technology Connect!
1. Come Fly with Me!
- During this engineering design process, students will explore Bernoulli’s Principle, as they build various types of aerospace vehicles, and discover Newton’s Law of Inertia.
STEM Challenge: Design and Build an airplane that will travel 15 feet.
2. Cosmic Cookie Dough
- Students will study the Earth’s moon, gravity, moon phases, tides, and rocketry.
STEM Challenge: Design and build a telescope.
3. It’s Electric!
- Investigations in static electricity, structure of the atom, and building circuits and switches.
STEM Challenge: Design and build a dance pad.
4. Pull Your Weight
- Explorations include studying different types of pulleys, simple and complex machines, and Newton’s Third Law of Motion.
STEM Challenge: Design and build a crane to lift a heavy load on a new space colony on Mars.
5. Wearable Circuits
- Our young scientists will experiment with electronic devices, circuits, and wearable technology.
STEM Challenge: Design and build an LED book light.
6. Water Works
- Students explore different types of hydroponic systems, seed germination, and photosynthesis.
STEM Challenge: Design and build a hydroponic garden prototype used by the future astronauts on the Mars colony.
6. Jr. LEGO Robotics
- Designed for 1st to 3rd graders. This program introduce LEGO WeDo 2.0 model builds! Students will learn how to code and program LEGO WeDo robot builds to move. Construct a Giant that awakens when their is movement nearby! Build a racing car and a jumping monkey all with Legos and coded by you!
7. Icky, Gross, Spooky Science
- Designed for K to 5th graders. Activities will vary depending on the age group in the class. What young scientist doesn’t like a little mess and fun while learning to do science? Kids will use household products to create fake blood and Ph paper from Cabbage Juice. They will also dissect owl pellets and grow bacteria to learn about germs. We won’t save the best for last though, we will concoct our own gravity defying GOO and end with all scientist’s favorite—Fun Fantastic Explosions!
