Brain Games (CANCELLED)
Qwirkle, Blokus, Othello...Is this a vocabulary or spelling class? Nope, it's a session of BOARD GAMES and PUZZLES! Play some games you've never heard of and some of the classics! Learn how to think about game strategies while you have some good old fashioned FUN! Use the skills you learn to invent your own board game to take home with you!
Using WeDo robotic kits, we will make our Lego creations come alive! We will learn how to program so that our creations move!
We will build solar ovens and wind turbines by using stuff you'd find around the house to explore motion, deceleration and momentum….and maybe solve the world's energy problems!
Air pressure, gravity, magnetism, and rocketry--what do they all have in common? Working together, they have allowed the human race to explore space! Start your own space adventure with us!
For Students Going into Grades 5-8 in the 2012-2013 School Year
21st Century Designing
Design a house or draw your entire city! Maybe even invent something! Using Google SketchUp, model anything you can imagine. There's no limit to what you can create!
Digital Entrepreneurs Wanted
Taking pictures is one thing. Learning how to use a digital camera, professional lighting and Adobe Photoshop to create works of art is something entirely different. Learn how to make a digital comic book and find out how High Dynamic Range imaging can knock your socks off--all while learning how to start your own business!
Engineering and Design Blast Off
We will create design challenges and test them out. We will shoot off rockets, attempt a Mars landing, test the re-entry burn of a space shuttle and launch hot air balloons!
Lego Robotics (FULL)
If you love robots and computers, then this is the class for you! We will use MindStorms and work together creating machines such as cars, tankbots, hand dryers, stoplights, automatic doors, burglar alarms and more!
