Emerging Engineers – Grades 2 – 6 – Spring 2022 – 10 Weeks
Wednesday, March 30 2022 @ 3:00PM - Wednesday, June 15 2022 @ 4:30PM 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 1, 2022.
