3 Different 10-week Sessions
Session I (THURSDAYS: 10/19 – 1/11)
Balls and Tracks
Using flexible pipe insulation, marbles, and a few other simple materials, youth take on the challenges of creating small-scale models of amusement park rides and sporting events, such as the ski jump.
Make strong structures with limited materials. Youth perform more and more difficult challenges to uncover many simple principles of bridge building.
Session II (THURSDAYS: 1/25 - 3/29)
Construct simple airplanes from paper. After testing designs for tails, bodies, and wings, construct a rubber band launcher. This allows for a more consistent way of evaluating all of the variables.
Rubber Band-Powered Cars
Using cardboard, dowels, plastic plates, and rubber bands, youth build their own cars and learn the engineering concept of optimization by testing different rubber bands and different diameter plates as wheels.
Session III (THURSDAYS: 4/12 – 6/14)
Launch the outer straw like a toy rocket by blowing. By using a sandwich bag propulsion system, youth test different kinds of fins while trying to refine their toy rockets so they will consistently hit their target.
Start with a working design of an ancient throwing machine similar to catapults and slingshots. The challenge is to improve the design by testing and adjusting the different parts of this device.
Creative Art Lab
This is the ultimate class for fostering creativity and allowing your child the complete freedom to express themselves through their art! We will introduce various artistic styles and techniques, but we also encourage our students to use their own ideas and techniques as they experiment with a wide variety of materials, and discover their own artistic style!

Fee: $150 for 8 weeks
Lego Tech Plus
Our new LEGO Tech Plus! program will combine all of the most popular building and technology kits for kids! We will introduce lessons and challenges using LEGOs - PLUS! - K'nex, Magnetix, Erector Sets, Snap Circuits, and more. All lessons will revolve around STEM subjects: science, technology, engineering, and math. Construct structures, build and test circuits, create motorized machines and vehicles - this class has it all!
