After-School Art (Ages 3-6 & 6-12)

STEM (Ages 6-9)
STEM is available after-school for students in first through third grade. The STEM curriculum we use is called Engineering is Elementary. Each unit has a different type of engineering focus, whether it is mechanical, electrical, biomedical, etc. The students work through a series of activities using the Engineering Design Process: Ask, Imagine, Plan, Create, Improve (and sometimes Repeat). We solve problems such as creating an avalanche protection system, designing a stage for a music festival to maximize sound, and creating an art display to mimic the Northern Lights. The students work together to solve everyday problems just like engineers! We have a blast doing it, of course.
Battle of the Books (Grades 3- 5)
Battle of the Books is a reading group designed to make reading fun and engaging for the students. Everyone is very engaged with their books and enjoy their time discussing the amongst themselves. Once all the books have been read, students make and play games to study the material. This is all to prepare them for the big Battle of the Books that will take place in the coming months.
