Moms and dads: Feel free to bring siblings and toys while you wait. We always have Nespresso and WiFi and available private room (when space allows) to homeschool additional siblings during class time. We have 3000 sq. ft with 9 rooms central to shopping and across from Whole Foods. On a space-availability basis, we are happy to host meetings of homeschool groups.
Pick a day/time for one or more classes convenient to YOUR schedule, recruit 4 other students, we'll schedule it and you will receive a $40 credit at Homelearners Academy or AfterSchool Academy.
Supervised lunch layover or a snack & study room is available free of charge for students attending two or more classes with a break in between.
Grades Kinder - 3rd
Animal Adaptations: Students learn about adaptations and apply what they've learned to design a shoe made for desert exploration.
Light and Sound: Students investigate light and sound and design a tool to communicate over distance.
Grades 4 - 6
Automation and Robotics:
Students explore the ways robots are used in today's world, then design a mobile robot that can remove hazardous materials from a disaster site. After exploring mechanical design and computer programming, the end-of-semester Challenge is to design an automatic-guided vehicle to deliver supplies in a hospital.
Grades 6 - 8
Design and Modeling:
Students discover the process and develop an understanding of the influence of creativity and innovation in their lives. They are then challenged to use the design process to design a therapeutic toy for a child with cerebral palsy. (Each student also brings home one 3D-printed and one laser-cut model of their own design.)
