This live instructor-led online course is created to help children avoid the summer slide and create the hands-on learning they missed during the last quarter of this school year. During these interactive classes, students will explore and try their hands in basic structural engineering and programming concepts and introduction to app design, while learning about and practicing Growth Mindset strategies and growing Socially and Emotionally.
Using empathy-driven design, children will design physical models of their ideas to improve their environments or lives. They will use app design and programming tools to convert their ideas online. Students will work together and learn how to recognize and leverage their strengths to be a better team, while brainstorming and learning valuable communication and collaboration skills. During the last class, students will present their ideas to the online audience of their peers and family.
Students will have access to the class materials and instructions for independent work outside of each class. Parents will receive a summary and the list of materials for each class, along with additional resources and ideas to help children continue their learning at home, and updates on the progress of their children.
1-hr weekly Instructor-led classes are held online Thursdays, 3-4pm. The link with instructions will be emailed to you upon purchase and registration.
