Simple Machines: Imaginations at work
Teacher: Kim Workman
PERIOD 1 (9-9:55 AM)
Through activities and experiments, this class is designed to help students understand how simple machines work and discover that working with tools means putting simple machines into action. Students will study levers, screws, wedges, wheel and axle, friction, compound machines, pulleys and the inclined plane with these activities.
Teacher: Kim Workman
Come use your engineering skills to create happy ending to famous stories! A chair that Goldilocks cannot break, a house that can withstand the wind, and an escape ladder for Rapunzel are among the fun challenges! Class time will include a short story introduction with lots of time for hands-on building. Everything is provided, just bring your design and problem-solving skills!
Have you ever wondered how the Great Pyramids were built or the Leaning Tower of Pisa? Then this is the class for you. Each week you will learn about magnificent structures from all over the world and then construct models of them with materials that can be found right in your home.
Teacher: Colleen Williams
This fall we are going on an electrifying adventure! Join us as we learn all about
electricity. We will try a new electricity related experiment or activity each week to
maximize hands-on learning. Students will be de-LIGHTED as we learn how
electricity literally lights up our world!
Creepy Crawly Animal adventures
Teacher: Faith Bruck
This class is not for the faint of heart! We will learn about those animals that make your skin crawl. Do spiders make you scream? Do insects make you squirm? Does a reptile make you run away? Come learn how these God-created creatures are spectacularly made for a specific purpose. Without honeybees, we would not have colorful flowers or fruit! Without spiders, the mosquitoes would eat us alive! Reptiles remind us of when dinosaurs roamed the earth. This is an animal class you do not want to miss! By the end, you'll be ready to embrace every creepy crawly you see!
Teacher: Jennifer Decker
AGES: 6-10 PERIOD 2 (10-10:55 AM)
This class is a fun way to introduce young students to concepts of chemistry that they will learn in later years of school. Our young chemists will learn about atoms, molecules, atomic number and mass, the periodic table, and more while engaging in fun, hands-on activities each week.
