Physical and digital games, games, and more games! Are you ready to join the exciting world of programming? In our "Coding Mini-Games" class, we will have a blast learning the basics of coding by making interactive games.

This class is great for nerds that like games! Playing them and building them! The Scratch Jr platform is easy to use and understand, with blocks, colors and symbols that are friendly to our little noob nerds, but is also capable of creating complex scripts for our more advanced nerds! Our little nerds love that this class is interactive, with lots of movement and physical coding, while still creating fun digital games.

It’s really hard to NOT love this class. Any nerd that is interested in dinosaurs or animals will love this class. There is so much to learn and do for a young paleontologist!

Fun Fact: Dinosaur fossils have been found on every continent- even Antarctica!

Grades 1-3

Calling all artsy nerds!
The blend of art and engineering in this class is simply magical!

This class is for creative nerds that love art and to build. And WHO DOESN’T?

The nerds that love this class are interested in robotics and coding, but there is still LOTS of room for creativity, art, and building in this class! Our little robots are easy to understand, but are also capable of complex tasks and conditional logic. This is great for nerds that have no coding or robot experience, but also those that need a challenge!

Whether they’re the adventurous type who’s always looking for the next big thrill or the creative type who loves to build and make things, they’ll have a blast in this class. It’s great for curious minds who are always asking “why?” and “how?” and love to learn by doing. If your child has a love for rocks, fossils, and crystals, they’ll fit right in with our group of young geology enthusiasts. So, come join us and let’s rock this summer!

Fun Fact: Geologists study more than just rocks and minerals. They also study things like earthquakes, landslides, and even the effects of climate change on the Earth’s surface.

Grades 1-3

Slime is cool, but how does it work? Make your own slime like gak, floam, and kinetic sand!

Nerds LOVE to learn about how slime works and experimenting with variables to change the properties of their slime. Nerds also love getting their hands right in there and feeling the interesting textures and sensations of different types of slime.

Are you a star-gazer? An adventurer? Hop in the ship and let’s BOLDLY GO! In this class, nerds learn a ton about space exploration, but they also get to build, imagine, and create! Sometimes we are learning together and discussing what difficulties we might have living in space, and other times we are working in interactive stations throughout the room sending “planets” (marbles) around a “star” (weight) in our gravity well demonstration (its like a trampoline)! There is lots of science in this class, but it isn’t about memorizing facts. This class is about wondering, discovering, and building!

Fun Fact: One day on Venus is longer than one year on Earth!

Grades 1-3

May the force be….understood.
