Teacher: Jaime Cozza (Preschool Teacher & Loves making things out of cardboard)
Ask your nerd: Are you creative? Do you plan and imagine big designs? Do you sometimes wish to build your own creative structures out of objects found in your home? If so, let us help you bring your big ideas to life!
Online Class Format
- Your nerd will be participating in a 50-minute teacher led virtual environment (Circle Time) using Zoom. Nerds will discuss their designs and share their knowledge with 4-7 other students while celebrating their discoveries together!
- After the Zoom class they will then work independently for 1 additional hour to construct their build.
- By enrolling in this class nerds will also unlock the day-by-day course materials below which will supplement their learning outside of the live Zoom session.
This is a good fit for:
This is a fun hands-on class for nerds who are imaginative learners, who love building and creating things with physical materials! Your builder will use everyday household supplies, recyclables and their creativity to complete daily engineering challenges. Along with design building we will also discuss in class the basic principles of structural design and materials engineering. They will then share their structures the next day in class!
What nerds learn:
In addition to learning about the building process, your nerd will learn to persevere as they plan, create, and improve their creations. Ideas will be given on techniques to use when building their structures as well as items that could be used as substitutes. We will encourage the builders to be creative and use found objects to construct their buildings. I envision your builders using lots and lots of tape.
During this 5 day class your nerd will imagine and create awesome builds including:
- Height/Tower Challenge
- Home/Shelter Build
- Playground Build
- Shelter for Themselves Build
- Gravity Challenge
Gain New Nerd Skills!
After brainstorming as a group your Nerd Builders will have the opportunity to discuss their ideas collectively. They can learn from peers and build on each others designs. They’ll share their amazing builds each day in class and your child will make new friends while they cheer each other on!
Ultimately, the build will be very open ended. This class is for 4-6 year old creative nerds who wish to construct designs, explore building techniques, and want to learn how to become a Nerd Builder!
**Pro Tip: Gather 4-6 of your nerd’s friends and we’ll set up a private class at a special time for your group of nerds!!! Contact us at [email protected]
