SPORTS STEM AGES 3.5-6Throughout these fun and interactive lessons, children gain a better understanding of the athletic and recreation activities they love from the perspective of STEM. Each class will cover the STEM behind a different sport/recreation activity. Learning the how, what, why, when and where behind their activities helps youth become more mentally and physically engage in their play. And when STEM education is put into action it makes the associated education concepts more intriguing and exciting.

STEM – Code On! AGES 8-12Young learners will focus on the fundamentals of computer science (coding) with Scratch. Scratch is a programming language and an online community where children can program and share interactive media such as stories, games and animation. As children create with Scratch they learn to think creatively, work collaboratively and reason systematically. Participants are welcome to bring their own laptops/Chromebooks and headphones to each class. For more information on Scratch, visit scratch.mit.edu/parents AGE
