Our STEM program for primary and elementary ages is comprised of classical engineering, computer programming, and robotics. A robust STEM education creates critical thinkers, problem solvers, and produces the next generation of innovators. The program incorporates the 4Cs – Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking and Creativity. The program is offered at multiple age levels to allow the students to grasp different concepts based on their ages and abilities. Throughout the programs, children will learn and build a solid STEM foundation while having a BLAST!
We will journey through the world of Classical Engineering. We will be learning Aerospace Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, and Civil Engineering.
This program delves into the foundations of aerospace technologies. Chidlren face off with powerful air; experience its drag and pressure; learn about laws of motion and how they impact flying things. Children will create parachutes, design taternaut™ space suits, enjoy hands-on rocketry and make keepsake model planes.
Engineering Design Challenges get children on their feet exploring joints, fractures, bones and muscles. Children design their own hinge, ball and socket, and hydraulic prosthetics. Engaging activities include the The bare bones on Joints!, Grippy Test, Get a Mask! and Prosthetics Engineering Design LabTM.
In this program, Children learn the science of building structures and take baby steps towards working like a civil engineer to design structures using simple materials. May the forces be with them on this awesome mission of close encounters with the “all fall down” gravity, thrilling balancing acts, bridging designs and the quest to make the tallest skyscraper!
STEM FOR THE AFTERSCHOOL PROGRAMS:
Engineering Extravaganza — Children will get a taste of civil, mechanical, aerospace, and environmental engineering through building, hands on projects, and fun activities. Each week we will explore, build, and create different hands on projects! Come and join the fun!
Robotics I — Children learn the basics of computer programming and apply it to design robots to complete various challenges. They will design, build and program Lego® WeDo robots. Creations include simple rovers and mechanical contraptions. The program specifically designed for young students in grades K-5, bundles designing, building, problem-solving, computer programming, critical thinking, collaboration and communication into one exciting program.
Electrical Engineering — In this program children explore the world of hardware and electronic circuits. Children learn basic concepts of an electric current, voltage, conduction, resistance while building circuits to do simple tasks like light a bulb, power a fan, make a functioning radio. From there they will look into electronics with transistors and integrated circuits.
