Come join us as we use the engineering design process to guide our inventions and creativity. Each day we will be taking on a new engineering challenge like building a paper chair that you can sit on, creating a leprechaun trap, redesigning a toy, and exploring a Makerspace. Engineering is equal part science and creativity
Morning Class 8:30 am – 11:45 pm or Afternoon Class 12:45 pm – 4:00 pm For many lifetimes, authors and poets have used heroes and villains to tell us about human struggle and triumph. Can we learn something about ourselves from these characters? In this class, students will delve into the archetypes of the hero
(Afternoon Class 12:45 pm – 4:00 pm) Description coming soon.
(Morning Class 8:30 am – 11:45 pm or Afternoon Class 12:45 pm – 4:00 pm) Science and Art have a unique relationship, from symmetry in nature to the chemical make up of paints. This summer’s class will go through STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) units like exploring balance in science, math and art
Which is your favorite: singing, dancing or acting? if that’s a tough question, this is the class for you! Make like-minded friends in this intensely fun performing-arts class. Learn about using your voice and body in fabulous, funky and funny ways as you delve into the world of musical theater through warm-up games, learning dances,
Students will use rocket physics to build a solid-engine model rocket and apply geometric principles to determine the altitude the rocket achieves. These are larger rockets which use a parachute recovery system. How high will your rocket fly?
What makes a robot – a robot? You might be surprised by what defines a robot and that there already may be some in your home! If you want to learn about the workings of the automaton, this is the class for you! Discover with us what makes a robot tick and how the different parts
This Class is no longer available. When civil engineers design bridges, they must take into account factors like balance and motion. This unit introduces the principles behind bridge design. Students will reinforce their understanding of “push” and “pull” as they explore how forces act on different structures. They’ll use what they know about balance and
This class is not available. Have you ever wondered how you impact the Earth? Why is it important to recycle, reduce or reuse? In this class we will explore the potential impact of non-recycled trash and how it changes and impacts the ecosystem. We will learn ways to reduce our individual impact and how to
Explore mathematical concepts through hands-on art-based activities. Modern Art will serve as the backdrop for us to explore concepts of number sequences, complex patterns and other geometric principles. Each week, we’ll apply what we learned by creating artwork of our own. You’ll not only learn about the Pythagorean Theorem, but you’ll use it to create
