Ages 8 to 13 – In this group, kids will be introduced to many STEM concepts thru hands on projects and 21st century skills such as programming, critical thinking and problem solving. Some hands on projects include making  a homemade motorized robot, a solar oven that will cook s’mores, building a ferris wheel with popsicle sticks and awesome science experiments such as making hot ice and elephant toothpaste. Kids will learn the fundamentals of computer programming by creating their own games.

 

Ceramics, Clay & Crafts  (Ages 4 to 7) (Ages 8 to 13)

Lego Robotics (Ages 5 to 8)

We offer multiple themes so that Lego enthusiasts have new projects each week. Models include motors and sensors that can then be programmed to move and make sounds using simple drag & drop block technology.

Kids will engage in learning experiences that make science come to life. Some of the topics/models include a science rover, robust structures (earthquake), a frog’s metamorphosis, plants & pollinators, drop & rescue helicopter and flooding prevention (dam).

 

 

Forensic Science (Ages 8 to 13)

Kids will become detectives and use forensic science to answer questions, gather evidence and solve crimes! They will learn how to gather and process fingerprints, footprints, tire tracks, DNA, soil samples, hair and fibers samples. They will use these new skills to solve several crimes including the case of the kidnapped cookies!

 

 

mbot Robotics (Ages 9 to 13)

Camper’s will build robots using Makeblock mbot kits which consists of aluminum parts, a powerful MegaPi mainboard, motors and a range of sensors.  Once the robot is complete campers will learn to program the robot using block-based programming. Campers will develop their logical thinking and design skills. 

 

Lego Robotics (Ages 9 to 13)

Using Lego Mindstorms EV-3, kids will build various robots using different sensors (gyro, ultrasonic, color & touch) and will learn to program these robots to move, turn & make sounds. They will learn to interprete the sensors feedback to make it perform certain tasks.

They can also take part in a space challenge which consists of 7 missions that were co-developed with space experts. Students will explore and create innovative solutions to current space exploration topics.

 

Coding with Scratch (Ages 9 to 13)

Kids will learn all about coding while having fun. They will create many video games that they can share with their friends and continue to play at home.

 

Coding with Python/Website Design (Ages 9-13)

Kids will learn to program with the Python language while coding some fun games. They will also create a basic website using Java and HTML.
