Using a unique two brain approach in a positive and friendly environment, students are inspired to write and “publish” their own book.  This is a fun and challenging eight-week adventure where each student will be an author, editor, and artist “hired” by the publishing company to create their masterpieces. As a company, we will assemble and bind the books creating professional results.  Students will learn how to use the elements of story building to captivate their readers and enhance their illustrations to make their words come alive.  Their books will be a treasure to cherish.  In a culminating activity, we will have an evening with parents and friends to “Celebrate the Authors”.

In this Robotics Club, we combine robots with coding to ignite children’s imaginations & build confidence in how they look at the world and approach problems.  We’ll explore how to build and program robots using various platforms such as Lego WeDo, Wonder Robots or Ozobots, depending on student skill, experience and interest. Students learn AI and robots are only as smart as they make them, both in physical design and computer code. That's what we practice - making our robots act smart!   Students work together as they develop their skills in reasoning, math, creativity and problem-solving in a fun, collaborative and supportive environment. Our progressive curriculum supports students with beginner- intermediate computer  programming skills.
