Many people view science as a remote field performed by distant professionals with secret laboratories and expensive tools. Schools and even many college courses focus on memorization of facts and information that science has brought to the world, rather than the true essence of science: the scientific process. The truth is that science can be applied to every aspect of our daily lives. In this class, we’ll use everyday materials to investigate, gather, and analyze information about the world around us. Each day, students will work on hands-on projects designed to deepen their understanding of science and create a lifelong habit of inquiry.

Students get to take home their inventions at the end of each class.

Adventures in Coding is designed specifically for young people who want to learn how to code, but don't know where to begin. No experience? No problem! This class starts from the very basics and takes you from zero to coder in no time. We’ll focus on developing computational thinking. You'll 'learn by doing' as you build projects designed to help you master fundamental programming skills.These skills form the foundation of any programmer's tool set, and you'll continue to use them as you graduate to more complex concepts and tools.

Each student will be provided a computer for use in the classroom.
