Look What I Created! 
In this two week session, students will be introduced to basic concepts in science, technology, engineering, and math. Our goal is to spark scientific imagination through creative and challenging projects. We encourage teamwork and social responsibility. Is there an idea for constructing a bridge lurking in the back of your brain that we can test? Would you like to learn how to design and build a simple machine? Want to see what you’re made of on the inside? This is your chance to test your ideas or simply find out how things work. We’ll explore our world through science and math. Team projects and engineering design challenges include many topics, exploring a variety of career fields. Sign on to join this investigative team and let’s look at the world around us to figure out how does “that” work. Warning: you may never look at science and math the same way again after having this much fun! This course is designed for students in grades 3 to 5 for the 2015-2016 school year. The $347 course fee includes lab supplies. Students will need to provide their own lunch.

Coming summer 2017!

Science Investigative Team
In this two week session, students work as a team in the science lab to test materials and use what you learn to engineer your own unique design. Then we’ll put your design to the test to see how it works. We’ll explore a variety of topics and social issues from around the world that are fun and interesting, such as ecology, health and the body, physics and the environment. We’ll work together with team games and eye opening hands on activities. This course is designed for students in grades 6 to 8 for the 2015- 2016 school year. The $347 course fee includes supplies. Students will need to provide their own lunch.

Coming summer 2017!
