Discovery Lab : STEAM Science

Grade 1 – 4

Expand your scientific mind and discover how the world works in your very own STEAM based discovery lab! By participating in fun, hands-on activities and experiments, students will develop their understanding of how science applies to the world around us. From ecosystem interactions to weather, or the kinetic differences between solids, liquids and gases, Discovery Lab : STEAM Science has something for everyone!

Dynamic Chess : Strategy and Tactics

Grade 2 – 5

Join us in this Intermediate/Advanced Chess program and learn how to bamboozle your chess opponents through the use of strategy and tactics. Recognizing frequently-occurring tactical ideas is vital to success in chess. Intermediate players will benefit from the clear explanation of  concepts, such as how to utilize a fork, pin, or skewer; while more advanced players will learn to plan the game from the very first move, think ahead, anticipating every obstacle opponents can throw their way and to position themselves for the strongest endgame possible. Learn how to win and have lots of fun this term in Dynamic Chess!

Note to Parents: This program is suitable to students with some experience playing chess. Students in this program should understand how all pieces move and should have played against several opponents at or above their skill level before registering. Those students with more experience will also be challenged with  advanced strategy and gamesmanship. The game of chess is rich in learning opportunities and great for developing social skills.

Great Minds : Science, Art, Engineering and Philosophy

Grade 2 – 5

From Thomas Edison’s light bulb filament to Sir Isaac Newton’s revelation of gravity, the great minds of our time have shaped the way we look at the world. In this program, students will use a hands-on approach to learn about the great minds of history. Learn about Darwin’s theory of evolution, explore Benjamin Franklin’s famous kite experiment and re-discover Leonardo Da Vinci as an artist, a mathematician and an inventor! Maybe you will be the next Great Mind of the 21st century!

STEAM Chess and Logic

Grade 1 – 3

Do you want to learn the game of Kings, Generals, Conquerors, and Intellectuals? Join us in this Beginner/Intermediate level program and we’ll show you how you can play the game of chess and WIN! In this fun program, we’ll learn to: set up the board, confidently move each piece, visualize the board to gain an edge over your opponents, and predict your opponent’s strategy and stop their plan before they’ve even tried it! Chess provides the opportunity to learn to think through complex problems and in this program, we’ll use STEAM criteria and concepts to teach and reinforce these lessons of logic. Chess is a game of Masters – now’s your chance to finally learn the ancient game of Kings and Conquerors!

Note to Parents: While this program is suitable to those with little to no experience, older children with some experience will also be challenged with more advanced strategy and gamesmanship. The game of chess is rich in learning opportunities and great for developing social skills.
