This program is Techno-Science (Science and Technology combined). If you are interested in Technology or Science only, please click on blue Technomania or Science button above.
In our Techno-Science class we alternate every two or three weeks between Science and Technology/Robotics/Programming.
Time and Tech! for Grades K-2nd
For our science discoveries, we will explore geology, caves, dinosaurs and more!
As we explore fascinating earth and prehistoric science we will make fossils and crystals, explore the animals and formations in caves, discover more about dinosaurs, create a volcano and pan for gold, just to name a few!
Technology: Robo-Rangers: An Adventure Into Programming, Robotics & Simple Machines
Your child will go on a technology and robotics adventure as they build activities using simple machines and drop and drag programming with motorized LEGO® We Do ™ Robots. Build and program a crocodile, a wolf, a turtle and lots more! See their excitement as they learn how machines and robots work!
They will think they are just having fun, but we know that they are learning!
Robots in Flight! Grades 2-5
Please note: Your child must be 8 for this program.
Wait until your child brings home their own glider that they made, and can explain the principles of atmospheric flight to you! What forces were acting on the remote-controlled plane that they flew?
What does the pressure of the atmosphere have to do with flight? Come join the fun as our students become experts!
Unifying Science Through Engineering: While they will love the challenges presented, you will love that your child has come away from this great program with an understanding of the scientific principles that the challenges are focused upon.
Technology: Robo-Tech: Your child's adventure into Robotics and Technology
In the Robotics and Programming portion of the class, our students will MINDSTORM their way through robotics and programming, creating amazing robots with sensors. We challenge your child in building and programming using Lego® Mindstorms ® NXT’s Robots. Watch for the Domabot robot build!
Be ready to be amazed with their ability to program their own games and videos! They will create challenges for their classmates using reasoning, sequential thought and Scratch Programming! We will also introduce Alice 2.2, the next step in programming videos which allows the students to control facial features and realistic body movements while creating their own storyline.
- Watch the love for technology spark in your child as we make learning FUN!
