Emerging Engineers – Grades 2 – 6 – Spring 2021 – 10 Weeks
Thursday, April 8 2021 @ 11:00AM - Thursday, June 24 2021 @ 12:30PM EDT| $250.00
Students will be introduced to the multi-faceted field of engineering and apply the engineering design process through project-based learning.
Lessons are project- and inquiry-based, with a focus on interdisciplinary learning. The importance of play in a child’s development is well documented; educating children from a STEAM perspective encourages them to play, ask questions, and pursue their passions and creativity from a young age. Students learn in a safe environment, where the value of failure as a learning exercise is taught. Because mistakes are viewed as part of the learning process, students develop confidence and resilience. The focus is on the journey, not simply on the outcome. Students are encouraged to display creativity and to put their own individual stamp on projects.
The goal of this course is to pique a child’s interest in the disciplines of science, technology, engineering, art, and math – disciplines that the child may wish to pursue in later life. Students will gain confidence in STEAM subjects and begin to develop the technical, creative, and critical thinking skills that they need to be part of an innovative future.
Registration deadline is March 15, 2021.
There must be a minimum of 5 students to run this class.
So much more then legos
This class has really helped my daughter think outside of the box. In addition to building cities and learning about important social and environmental aspects of the community, the children are given the opportunity to explore different medias to express in their creative process. Mrs. Brittany is truly amazing and really knows how to get the best out of each student.
My 10 year old LOVED this class!
My son had the best time in this class & learned so much. It was such a positive experience I signed him up for other classes with this instructor.
A Wonderful Experience
My daughter is currently taking the LEGO Design Series – Build Your City and it has been a wonderful experience for her. Ms. Brittany has encouraged her so much and she’s come out of her shell and is actually participating in class. She tells me each day how excited she is for class again. She’s constantly brainstorming for her weekly assignments. I’m thrilled watching my daughter grow from such a fun and unique class.
