What’s It About?
Hand On! STEM Studio
Think about key skills needed in today’s workplace: problem solving, critical thinking, and the ability to work in a team. What do they all have in common? They’re all related to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math). During Hand On! STEM Studio, students will engage in projects that incorporate all of these key skills. Students will work hand on in cooperative teams to explore, investigate, tinker and create.
Kids That Create
Every student has a creative side that is just waiting to be used. Even students who say they are not “artistic” will love this camp. Kids that Create is all about creation, invention and tinkering! With only the materials provided and their creativity, thinking “outside the box” will be the key to this camp. So put on your thinking cap… If you can imagine it, you can make it here!
Kids that Code: Robots
Programming goes beyond the computer in this camp. Our Kids that Code: Robots program helps students develop skills like strategic thinking and logic while engaged in problem based learning. Using various robotic elements like Ozobots and Spheros students will learn to program these robots to follow their commands to complete a task and navigate through home made obstacle courses.
In the Spotlight
Your student is the star of their own film in this camp! In the Spotlight takes students through the filmmaking process from start to finish. Students will learn the basics of filmmaking and will work in collaborative groups to produce their own film or music video. Students will start with an idea, create a story map, write a script, design props, scout locations, shoot their scenes, and edit their film. The camp ends with a premiere party at the end of the week.
Kids that Code
Computer Programming is basic literacy in this digital age. Students must be able to not only consume technology, but also understand and control it. In this program, students will develop their problem solving skills through hands-on exploration of coding basics. Students will explore Lightbot, code.org, and MIT’s Scratch to program basic animations and games.
Love Disney/Pixar movies? Have an interest in animated characters on tv? Then join the animation studio. In our studio students will learn the art of animation. Students will explore different methods of animation and experiment with each before working in cooperative groups to create a final project. Animation methods include flip books, clay-mation, stop-motion, and simple computer animation. Imaginations will be put to the test in this fun and creative camp.
Kids that Code: LEGO
Building with Legos is fun! Programming Legos is even better! In this program, students will build and them program their creations using the computer, special motors and sensors. Using the LEGO WeDo 2.0 and LEGO Boost! Kits, little hands will make big creations while exercising their critical thinking and problem solving skills.
Game Lab is all about the FUN! Game Lab explores tabletop games, role-playing games, physical athletic activities, and Breakout Games (think Escape Room). This hands-on, program will create an interconnected, immersive week of play and learning.
