STEM Labs is our after-school 8-week program for students ages 8 and up. Sessions include weekly classes in core topics such as ROBOTICS, CODING, ASTRONOMY, PHYSICS, CHEMISTRY, ENGINEERING, GEOLOGY, ECOLOGY, OCEANOGRAPHY, BIOLOGY, BOTANY, ZOOLOGY, PALEONTOLOGY, ARCHAEOLOGY and more! Our curriculum is thoughtfully designed so that it will cover all skill levels – so, with or without experience, students are sure to be challenged!
Biology & Chemistry LabsPerfect for the future doctor or biologist, these workshops introduce future scientists to the living world, learning biological systems, both plant and animal, as well as human anatomy. Our Chemistry Labs cover the atomic elements, their molecular structure and how different elements interact when mixed, heated or cooled. We utilize quality models and visual aids to demonstrate a variety of chemical principles. We also mix (safe) chemicals to show reactions, make crystals, and conduct other fun experiments, while teaching students how to use quality microscopes to examine various elements.
Engineering LabsBuilders, engineers and inventors, this workshop series is for you! We cover the principles of mechanical/civil engineering, including building, structures, lifting/moving objects, strength and material calculations, motion, the impact of environmental forces on structures. For those wanting a more creative outlet, we also offer workshops on the design and invention of prototypes and technology, utilizing our own Technology Lab equipment, including 3D printers, for these workshops.
Programming LabsScratch Programming - Students will learn the fundamentals of programming in Scratch, which is a fun, graphical environment. Topics include variables, conditions, loops, motion, events, and logic, providing a foundation for higher level programming languages.
Robotics LabsVex Robotics - Robotics is an interactive course that will teach students how to build and program robots, collaborate with other students, and problem solve. Robotics encompasses many parts of engineering, and this course will teach students how to build and program robots to solve specific tasks autonomously and with human intervention. No prior robotics or programming experience is required.
