Ben Franklin Elm FALL 2019:

Jr. Lego: WeDo Robotics, Amazing Mechanisms!: K-2nd grade:

In this program, we will be exploring a variety of coding and technology skills as well as working on group collaboration, critical thinking, and hands-on skills! Children will have the opportunity to learn about parts of robots and machines such as axles, circuits, gears and pulleys. Many of these simple machines are easily translatable to real life situations (doorknobs, cars, even pulling water from a well!). The children will be building and coding, using motion sensors while building dancing birds, a drumming monkey, a spinner, and much more!

Apprentice Minecraft: Traveling Into the Future: 3rd-4th grade:

This program will immerse students in the expansive world of Minecraft, and will challenge student’s ingenuity and problem solving skills as they navigate through several engineering challenges. Students will learn how to use teamwork and manage resources like an engineer in the real world. Building in Minecraft allows students to experiment with designs and materials, all without the risks associated with building structures in reality.The children will work through desserts, they will build bridges in order to travel across bodies of water and much more!

Big Tree Elementary: Fall 2019:

Junior Aerospace Engineering: K-2nd grade

Your child will learn about Aerospace Engineering by examining and creating all kinds of flying objects. The students will learn about lift and gyroscopic rotation as they create flying saucers. They'll see how size, weight, and materials affect parachutes. They'll experiment with the concepts of potential and kinetic energy as they create jets and whirling copters. And, they'll see the concept of thrust in action as they launch multiple rockets and even learn about neutral buoyancy with helium balloons!

Apprentice VEX IQ: 3rd-5th grade

A VEX IQ class is designed to expose students to STEM fundamentals within the context of building a robot. Without even realizing it, students will begin to instinctively apply these lessons to their as they advance through the program. This hands-on process, especially for younger students, establishes an intuitive and deep-rooted expertise that simply cannot be replicated by traditional teaching methods. This class is limited to 15 students.
