Let’s Build It
Enter the fascinating world of robotics. In this exciting STEAM program, students will design, build and test their very own robots under the guidance of an experienced AES instructor. Projects include remote control cars, claws, cranes, crawlers, and battle bots. Educational components include gear ratios, mechanical design, electronics, and robotics engineering. No previous experience is necessary, just a desire to have fun, build, and learn. Each student will receive an award on the last day of the session, and have the opportunity to earn Energy Belts to demonstrate their learned skills!
January 27th – April 6th, no class 2/17, 3/16 3:05-4:05 pm
Tuesday: Chess Club (This is only open to current participants. Registration for Chess was for the entire year and already closed)
The Young Rembrandts program provides the tools needed to succeed at drawing – a teaching tool from which the majority of learners prefer and ALL learners benefit! Our program works because it’s not only hands-on and visual…it’s simply fun. We take kids from thinking they’re not “artists” to knowing they can achieve this, and everything else, they put their minds to. Young Rembrandts will have 2 classes: one in the library and one in the art room at 3 pm.
