This class includes all new projects each session. Kindergarteners take their first steps into STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, math) through these fun, hands-on and engaging science, art and design technology, and building activities geared for young inquisitive minds. Projects are different for fall, winter and spring sessions throughout the year and do not repeat. Students will learn about organisms and life cycles, simple machines, the tools used to work on machines, and their functions. Using K’NEX Life Cycles and Transportation, Lego Early Simple Machines and Tech Vehicles, and Keva Planks, students construct 3-D models, build a tower, road, seesaw, rolling vehicles and rafts, create their own creatures and…lots, lots more! Kids develop cognitive thinking and spatial skills; increase their understanding of cause and effect; explore energy, structure, gravity, buoyancy and balance; and cooperate with team members as they test, experiment and create…ALL while having loads of fun! 29 Classes for School Year: 9/16/15 9/23/15 9/30/15 10/7/15 10/14/15 10/21/15 10/28/15 11/4/15 12/2/15 12/9/15 12/16/15 1/13/16 1/20/16 1/27/16 2/3/16 2/10/16 2/17/16 2/24/16 3/2/16 3/9/16 3/23/16 4/6/16 4/13/16 4/20/16 4/27/16 5/4/16 5/11/16 5/18/16 5/25/16 NO Classes: 11/11 Vet Day, 11/18 PC, 11/25 Thanks, 1/6/16, 3/16 PC, 3/30 SB No classes during Parent Conference weeks or holidays.
