STEM shifts Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics learning away from the traditional teacher-centered model and instead synthesizes these four disciplines around problem-solving, discovery, and exploratory learning. Students develop deeper understandings by engaging in a situation in order to find a solution.
Our after-school STEM offerings provide students in Grade 3 through Grade 8 additional opportunities for STEM exploration outside of the regular math and science classrooms. Topics include coding, preparation for math competitions, robotics, engineering, and more.
STEM Season 3
January 7–February 14
Registration Opens on Friday, December 14 at 7 a.m.
Students will work with a variety of math problems and concepts to prepare them for the Math Counts competition and increase their understanding. A great class for a student looking to participate in competitions, be exposed to new concepts, or improve their math skills.
In this lab-based course, students will complete weekly experiments introducing them to various chemistry terms and concepts. These hands-on labs will be engaging and provide the students with an opportunity to become more comfortable using lab equipment and experimental design.
In this class students in third grade will have an opportunity to learn about robotics using the Lego Mindstorms EV3 software and robots. Students will learn to program and move their robots in an environment that will prepare them for robotics competitions, while also providing them the freedom to explore, create, and play.
In this diverse course, students will have the opportunity to investigate how things work by getting a peek inside. Each week we will explore a new item. Investigations will be both mechanical and biological. We will tinker and take apart toys and gadgets, as well as complete guided dissections to learn more about plants and animals. An exciting course for any curious science student.
In this course, students will learn about capturing and editing video to create a wide variety of content from tutorials to sports “hype videos.” A great starting place for artists, photographers, and future social influencers.
In this course, students will have the opportunity to learn and play a new strategy game or puzzle each week. We will learn new games, enjoy some friendly competition, and hone our problem-solving, logic, and reasoning skills.
