STEAM Classes

STEAM 

Ages 5-11
LLC (Room 3) Entry D
Instructed by: Afterschool Enrichment Solutions

This exciting program from Afterschool Enrichment Solutions brings together every element of STEAM in a hands-on, action-packed environment! Each week, the class will be actively exploring a concept related to science, math, engineering or art. Students will conduct science experiments, try out unplugged coding activities, strengthen math skills with grade-level-appropriate games and unlock their creativity through engineering challenges and art projects. Topics covered include
aerodynamics, surface tension, buoyancy, air resistance, problem-solving and teamwork. Each class consists of a warm-up game, a “main event” where the primary learning point for the day is explored, and a winddown game to refocus energy as we transition to home or after-care. Our curriculum uses everyday household supplies, so that students can go home and recreate the experiments and activities for their families and discuss what they are learning!
Participants must bring their own tablet or laptop.
