After School Activities fall 2019
Robotics Jr.: Chain Reaction: Ready, Set, Roll
See the laws of motion at work in this thrilling, hands-on course. Both new and returning participants are welcome. Students will construct machines, like the Heavyweight Hammer and the Spin-o-Matic, and then combine them to create exciting chain reactions! Each week, the chain reactions will become more complex with the introduction of new machines. The projects will afford students the opportunity to delve into concepts such as force, gravity, velocity, types of energy, and balance. At the end of the session, students will be challenged to create the Ultimate Chain Reaction by working cooperatively to see how many machines they can incorporate.

An educational program that combines experimental exploration of the body, mind, and self with the exercise practice of yoga to support and enhance the health, development, and learning of young children. Yoga education at this age helps children to be learning-ready, physically fit, aware of self and others, and to develop coordination and confidence.
Participants will learn yoga poses, breathing, and relaxation exercises. These practices will help cultivate a calm mind, increase strength and flexibility, improve gross and fine motor skills, improve concentration, and help them understand how to identify and manage emotions and feelings. We will begin to work on “I feel”and “I am” statements and meditation practices to help build a calm and confident mind and body.
Students will learn about the structural design and the foundational materials used to provide support for bridges, towers, and tunnels. Students will create their own models using these understandings. Basic geometry will be taught to enhance the model's design and structure.
