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.
NOTE: Registration deadline is March 1, 2022.
There must be a minimum of 5 students to run this class.
Such a Fun Class
The Lego Design Series is such a fun class! It’s also much more than just playing with LEGO pieces. Currently, they’re creating a mini movie (2 minutes or less), learning about plots and characters, etc. In the past, they created environmentally sustainable cities, built a base to support life on the moon, and a few others. It has helped my daughter really dig into her creative side.
After deciding to homeschool this year, I searched high and low for an online class for our youngest child in order to grant me a small built-in break in my week and enable me to focus on some of our other children. I could not be more thrilled with the outcome of this enrollment! As a fellow teacher I was quick to see that Mrs. Brittany Robbins teaches this class with extraordinary classroom management skills and creates an engaging and welcome atmosphere. My newly-minted 7yo was transported into a classroom where she made friends and connected with others. The class is engaging and encouraging to new readers and emerging readers alike. The emphasis on vocabulary expansion has enabled me to shift my other curriculum studies with her. I would absolutely recommend any class with Mrs. Robbins for any child of any age in the future!
The Best Class She Could Imagine
My daughter LOVES Mrs. Robbins’ Harry Potter class. She says the class is “the best class she could imagine.” I appreciate that Mrs. Robbins sneaks in plenty of vocabulary, comprehension checks, and reading practice alongside the fun. We immediately signed up for the follow up class!
Brings history to life
My daughter just loves this class. History is so different when it’s taught in this perspective. My daughter couldn’t learn enough, even aside from class reading, we looked for more books, videos, and any information we could find. It’s always a pleasure to have Miss Brittany as a teacher. She’s so encouraging and really keeps the kids engaged.
Five star class with the best OTA early elementary teacher!!
My daughter felt very grown up participating in this class each week and really looked forward to Tuesdays so she could see her classmates and participate through sharing what she learned. It encouraged her to start reading more on her own while accepting kids who weren’t there yet.
