Toddler STEAM

Parent-Toddler (Session 1 and 2) – Toddlers and parents bond and play while learning about Science, Technology, Art, Engineering and Mathematics. Created for 1.5-2.5 yrs old who are accompanied by an adult, toddler STEAM combines early childhood learning formats and image based movement to build literacy for later STEAM learning.  Hands on math and science activities support development of early math skills and scientific inquiry while songs and stories build language comprehension.

Mini STEAMster – Mini STEAMsters is designed to support children ages 2.5-4 yrs old in developing the social skills needed for independent and group learning with a focus on STEAM. Stories and art inspired activities are integrated inside the curriculum to create a developmentally appropriate learning experience.

Session 1 – Marvelous Mariners: Children will learn about marine habitats, migratory patterns and the fascinating adaptations that help animals survive in the wet and wild sea.

Session 2 – Things that Grow: Learners will explore the life cycles of plants, bees, and animals.

Little STEAMster – Little STEAMsters classes are designed to engage learners ages 3.5-5 yrs old in STEAM with games, art, and play based learning  to develop early learning skills.

Session 1 – Macaroni Math: Early learners build awareness of number values, number groups, sequences, patterns, and more.

Session 2 – Junior Geometry: Kids will learn about shapes, patterns, and dimensions.

Coding with Scratch – Scratch is more than a coding language. It’s a community. Developed by MIT, Scratch offers individual accounts and an easy to use drag and drop interface. It is an excellent platform for learning the basics of coding while and sharing original games, stories, and animations.

Our coding with SCRATCH classes will teach kids how to use appropriate technology to access and navigate the SCRATCH interface and  develop skills for using SCRATCH functions. Each class weaves in storytelling elements to develop awareness of narrative design in games and animations. Classes  progresses from skill building, to ideation, to creation as kids develop and grow their abilities.

Scratch Juniors (Session 1 and 2) – Learners (ages 5-6) will be introduced to the basics of coding methodology using Scratch Junior on tablets. Scratch Jr. is a coding app developed for early learners using pictures and symbols in a drag and drop approach. Instructors will use physical group games and exercises to introduce coding concepts. Team building, games and story writing create an immersive and fun learning environment. No experience necessary.

Scratch Level 1 (Session 1 and 2) – Learners (ages 7-11) will be guided through the foundations of Scratch online. Using laptops, they will learn the drag and drop approach to create sprites, build simple scripts + games or create animations.This class employs hands on group games, and age appropriate coding challenges. No experience necessary.

Scratch Level 2 (Session 1 and 2) – Created for learners (ages 7-11) who are ready to level up after completing Scratch level 1. Learners will be guided through the next set of challenges to continue developing their coding skills. They will advance as they continue to create sprites, build simple scripts + games or create animations. This class employs hands on group games, and age appropriate coding challenges. Must have completed Scratch Level 1 at STEMful to enroll.
