How fast can you make a wind-turbine spin?  Can you build a fast-moving toy?  Construct a putter for miniature golf?  Gears are everywhere!  Working in groups, students will gain experience working with LEGO gears and other Technic pieces to better understand the concepts of gearing ‘up’ and ‘down’.  Join us to tackle a different challenge each Saturday!

About Your Extraordinary Saturday (YES)

For 1st – 4th Grade Students

A New Adventure Every Weekend

MITY's program for elementary students enables inquisitive, high achieving 1st - 4th grade students to continue learning outside of the traditional classroom.  Courses are intentionally designed to inspire inquiry, activate imaginations, and engage eager learners in hands on discovery that is not possible within a regular classroom setting.  While students are in class, parents are invited to listen to professional speakers on topics related to raising bright children, socialize with other parents, or visit a local coffee shop.
