Math and Science Enrichment
Students will work on activities that support school day instruction using the approved NASA curriculum, After-School Universe and other supplemental resources. After-school Universe is an astronomy program targeted at middle school children in out-of-school-time settings. After-school Universe explores basic astronomy concepts through engaging hands-on activities, and focuses on the Universe outside the solar system.
Scratch and Alice are programming languages that makes it easy to create your own interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art -- and share your creations on the web. As young people create and share Scratch projects, they learn important mathematical and computational ideas, while also learning to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively.
Mechanics is a hands-on project where LEGOS will be used to build simple machines based on math and science concepts taught within National Standards.
The scientific method and critical thinking skills are emphasized in our exploratory activities. These concepts are investigated through observing, collecting, summarizing, analyzing, and presenting the results of replicated scientific investigations and fieldwork for students to develop the appropriate skills in science as inquiry.
The program includes small group instruction, supplies, and monthly updates. Our program consist of group and independent activities to expose students to each of the (S.T.E.M) disciplines.
