Saturday STEM Academy

Our STEM Academy provides students the opportunity to further develop their interests in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math in an integrative educationally stimulating series of course offerings. The spring session’s theme will focus on STEM Designing. Our program will explore a variety of problems that will incorporate multiple disciplines. This program provides students with project-based activities that reinforce discovery, critical thinking, empathy and collaboration. Come join us as your child learns teamwork and problem-solving skills that increase their self-confidence!

Classes will run from Saturday, March 2nd to Saturday, March 23rd from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. Payment of $90 per course is required for registration.

STEM DESIGN

Course Descriptions

  • Biotechnology – Both science and art are human attempts to understand the world around us. Drawing in science allows us to focus on details and minute structures while also capturing the essence of the object of study. In this program students will employ art techniques of technical sketching, nature sketching in different media, and water-color painting to closely examine and study presented specimens from all three domains of life.

  • Computer Science – Enter the world of coding as you learn computer programming and the fundamentals of computer science via a hands-on problem solving. Participants will learn about programming via MIT App Inventor. Second year students will learn an introduction to Python. You will learn how to implement the Design Thinking model as it applies to Computer Science.

  • Pre-Engineering – Students will learn about design, sketching and technical drawing. Our future inventors and innovators will learn to design a ‘blueprint’ and eventually create a model car. Students will learn how to implement the Design Thinking model as it applies to Engineering.
All students will participate in a collaborative group problem solving challenge. Collaboration, creativity, innovation and ingenuity will be an integral part of the experience as students learn to share ideas and learn from each other.
