Invent, sketch, create, engineer, code, and explore how things work in this project-based class. Students will use the Engineering/Design Process to explore LED lights, vibrating motors, rockets, airplanes, race cars, boats, pinball machines, catapults, zip lines, structures, bridges, and so much more!
Using a 3-D printer and software, aspiring engineers will create prototypes that address real world challenges. Students will use the Engineering Design Process to move from investigation, through design and creation, to evaluation, and ultimately bring their products to life.
Students will learn the exciting art and technology of robotics, from mechanical design to programming, and strengthen their knowledge of algebra. Students will build important teamwork and problem-solving skills as well. This class is available for all levels of experience.
Students will examine key scientific concepts and explore physical, earth, and life science through fun and challinging activities. Math topics range from 2D vs 3D to creating their own place value system. Art topics focus on the elements of art and PE lessons would be split between conditioning and skills. Students will create science concept cards, math notebooks, and their very own art portfolios.
Utilizing a variety of resources, students will gain a understanding of how science, math and art can all collide to make a unique learning experience. Through the use of hands on resources students will gain a deeper understanding of plants, animals astronomy, light, sound, properties of matter, magnetic forces, energy and much more.
Students will engage in subjects such as English Language Arts, Science, Arts, Movement, and Social Emotional Learning, while developing their overall computer skills.Students will practice typing, use safe internet research techniques, and learn positive habits and tips to make the most out of their time on the computer.
Students will examine key scientific concepts
