PEAP (1st-3rd Grade) Assist Goldilocks as she improves the design on that broken chair and makes it “just right.” PEAP brings the engineering design process to our youngest learners. This Academy course adapts the engineering design process to meet the needs of our favorite fairy tale characters. These familiar and timeless stories encourage students to begin problem solving, generate design proposals, collaborate, and make connections to the enchantment of engineering! New and improved!
Lego U (2nd and 3rd Grade) Bring abstract concepts to life with a fun, hands-on approach that really engages students. LEGO® bricks turn numbers, words, and ideas into real models that can be touched, described, and innovated across all subject areas! Each week, the students will undertake a design challenge connected to topics taught at the primary level in ELA, Science, S.S., Religion, or Math utilizing LEGO® bricks. They will also have opportunities to present and share, strengthening their presentation skills!
Arcade Academy (4th-8th Grade) A Home Run! Loads of Creative Fun! Based on “Caine’s Arcade,” this course invites students to design and build fun and engaging arcade games made from cardboard, recycled materials and imagination. The games are then shared with the school community to help raise awareness and funds for a charity of their choice.
Kitchen Chemistry (4th-6th Grade) An introduction to food preparation is a way to reinforce and teach subjects like science, math, and reading, and provides a fun, hands-on way to introduce young students to other life skills such as budgeting, problem- solving, grocery shopping and more! In addition to food preparation, some of the things students will learn about are the origins of food, healthy food choices, and not only how to achieve accurate measurements, but why it is so essential to the final outcome of a recipe. Food tastings and identification, as well as safe kitchen practices will be emphasized.
Kitchen Chemistry (5th-8th Grade) An introduction to measurements, baking, and decorating baked goods. Students will learn a variety of decorating techniques and how to use the "tools of the trade," to create delicious and beautiful desserts.
