STEAM Saturday

 
STEAM Saturday is designed as an exciting opportunity for our students in grades K to 8 to explore, discover, and learn outside the traditional classroom and be inspired to uncover their passion, gain motivation, and become lifelong learners. Across four Saturdays, students will engage in hands-on, interactive, and fun learning activities in a diverse selection of topics in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. Dates and times for STEAM Saturday during 2018-2019 will be finalized in August.  Blocks I and II will likely take place from 9:00-10:15AM; 10:40-11:55AM.

Seeking Instructors

Do you have a passion or a specific skill that you would like to share? Do you enjoy working with children and seeing their eyes light up as they discover something new? Then consider teaching a class in one of our upcoming STEAM Saturday Sessions. Each session is comprised of two 1 hour and 15 minute classes on four Saturdays on the above times and dates.
 
As an instructor, you get to determine:
  • What STEAM topic you want to teach
  • The grades of the students you want to teach
 STEAM Saturday course topics can range widely. Examples of past course topics include computer science and circuitry, environmental protection, geology, biology, DNA & cells, ornithology, keyboard fundamentals, dance, drumming, architectural model making, and coding, just to name a few.

The only class requirements are that all courses must be hands-on, interactive, and fun as well as age-appropriate and fall within the areas of STEAM.
