Winter/Spring 2019 Schedule -
February 27th - Engineer It! Boat Challenge: Put your nautical engineering skills to the test as we discuss the design process and build our own floating prototypes.
March 13th - LEGO Chemistry: The science of chemistry breaks our world down into its smallest pieces in order to study what makes them work. This week, we’ll demonstrate the ways these building blocks of matter interact with hands-on activities using the classic construction toy.
March 27th - Coding with Dash: Coding doesn’t have to be complicated. We’ll cover the fundamental ideas behind programming with the help of a robot called Dash.
April 10th - Light Science - Spectroscopes: Spectroscopy lets us study different types of matter by using light. Today we’ll build our own spectroscope and find out what it can tell us about the world around us.
April 24th - Photosynthesis: We eat plants but what do plants eat? We’ll learn about the fascinating way that plants feed themselves by making their own food.
May 8th - Solar Powered Time Tellers: Sundials have been used to tell time for thousands of years. Today we’ll make our own version of this ancient but useful piece of technology and find out how it works.
May 22nd - 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.
