Sessions:

September 22nd - Makey Makey

The Makey Makey is a computer accessory that can turn everyday objects into an extension of your computer’s keyboard. The concept behind this is basic circuit science. We’ll figure out exactly how these devices work and find some fun new ways to interact with a computer during today’s session.

October 6th - Maker Mashup

Take a tour of our tech lab as we explore the world of making. From 3D printing and design, to high-powered laser cutters, we’ll explore it all as we create virtual designs that will come to life before our eyes.

October 20th - Wonders of the Sea

Come along as we explore the Wonders of the Sea. We will cover deep-dwelling creatures and open water predators, as well as shallow water invertebrates. During this lesson, we will gain a better understanding of the water column and all the life it contains.

November 3rd - How Big is Space?

Have you ever wondered how long it would take to get to another planet? What about another star? Come along on this journey as we put the true vastness of space into perspective.

November 17th - High Flying Physics

Today we’ll take a look at actions as well as their equal and opposite reactions as we blast off with our air-powered rockets. We’ll explore the laws of motion as they try to keep our rockets grounded and discover what it takes to try to overcome those laws. 

December 1st - Pollinating Plants

Plants are all around us, but how did they get there if they can’t move? We’ll explore the world of pollinators and take a look inside of a flower to see how this amazing anatomy helps to make the world a greener place.

December 15th - STEAM Day

This class will introduce you to a veritable smorgasbord of science! STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, art, and math. This is a hands-on intensive, work at your own pace class featuring activities from many of the STEAM categories.
