Spring 2018 After School Workshops: April 9 – July 13 (13 weeks)
Mondays ($325) and Wednesdays ($275) – Virtual STEM Lab 2.0
Join STEM Guide Larry for exciting, science-based learning in our Virtual STEM Lab. The mission of STEM Lab is to provide students with fun, engaging and collaborative lessons that encourage them to connect with their inner geek and potentially pursue future studies in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Griffins will embark on a journey throughout the amazing world of Toy Making, Robotics and 3D Modeling. As part of our continuing Lab environment, students can choose between several challenging project-based activities, including:
- Basic Toy Making: Using templates from previous designs, 3D printed parts and LED lighting components, participants will have an opportunity to learn the process of toy design and construction. Each Griffin will be able to take a sample home to enjoy with family and friends.
- Personal Robot Meccanoid G15KS: More than a toy, the Meccano Meccanoid G15KS Personal Robot uses the most advanced technology and will become your new best friend. Now that Meccanoid is fully assembled and operational (thanks to the winter after school participants!), we will focus on teaching him new skills and programming in a team setting.
- Lego Construction and WeDo 2.0: LEGO® Education WeDo 2.0 makes elementary science come to life through hands-on tasks, real-world projects, and relevant technology that engages students. The unique combination of the LEGO brick, classroom-friendly software, and inspiring, standards-based science projects results in a resource that builds students’ confidence.
- 3D Model Design and Creation: Students will acquire a deeper understanding of math and science through the end-to- end 3D model creation process. We’ll use a mix of digital applications such as scanner apps, model editors, slicers and finally the 3D printer. These hands-on activities will naturally encourage the application of real-world math and science concepts. Each participant will be able to take home a model that they created.
Tuesdays ($325) – Drama Day
Calling all lovers of the theater – we’re bring the DRAMA back! Tuesdays will be dedicated to learning different drama techniques, playacting through improv, and writing short scripts. Drama instills creativity and self confidence, as well as nourishing the imagination. Join us as we learn to think on our feet! There will be opportunities for Griffins to learn about and lead their own improv and drama games as well.
Thursdays ($325) – Cooking: Snack Edition
Join Chef Keyonna and her kitchen crew for this session’s new adventure: Snacks Galore! We will build our cooking skills by making a variety of recipes just perfect for after school snacking. We will also co-create Greenfield’s first ever cookbook, with a “snacks galore” theme and helpful cooking hints from the Griffins. This workshop has a limited availability of 15 Griffins, so don’t wait to join!
Fridays ($325) – DIY in the Great Outdoors
Bring your curiosity and creativity to the Greenfields maker space on Fridays as we come together to make crafts, decorations and creative inventions. As the weather warms, we will take many of our DIY projects outside where we can incorporate nature elements and have the freedom to get extra messy with our experimentation. Griffins will also have the chance to work with Keyonna to develop and lead their own DIY activities throughout the session!
Other After School Options:
Full Week – Spring Session ($1,300)
10-class Flex Pass ($300) – any remaining days can roll into future sessions
