After School STEAM Classes
STEM + Art
STEAM ENRICHMENT WEEKLY CLASSES
We aim to SPARK the excitement of young people for ART, SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY in a setting that allows them to explore, question, and experiment with fascinating facts, projects and activities. Through discovery based learning, students carry out experiments, engage in team activities, create artistic masterpieces, build and program robots, learn new technologies, and see how art & science works in the real world. Our programs are full STEAM ahead…Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math and designed to inspire future innovators!
STEM + ART – Movie Maker Pro Class
We aim to SPARK the excitement of young people for ART, SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY in a setting that allows them to explore, question, and experiment with fascinating facts, projects and activities. Students will learn step by step how to make their very own 2D & 3D animation movies! Beginning with creating sets, characters and scripts students will create all of the elements necessary to produce their very own animated film….but the fun doesn’t stop there! Students will then use laptops to film, edit and finish their very own movie! This program allows young students to see how art & science works in the real world! Our programs are full STEAM ahead…Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math and designed to inspire future innovators!
MOVIE MAKER PRO CLASS
The fantastic, real world benefits of making and programming robots.
Terrific Scientific Robotic Programs uses LEGO® bricks, KNEX, StarBots, Goldiblocks, etc that emphasize a mixture of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) and great tools that foster imaginative thinking. Our programs are designed for youth 6-15 years old.
Science is, by its nature, inquiry based. Inquiry is an approach to learning that utilizes discovery and scientific thinking processes to explore knowledge and learn skills. In order to achieve this, facilitators of inquiry based learning must create an environment rich with experiences that allow learners to act on their own curiosity. Youth need experiences that will stimulate their thinking and provoke questions (inquiry). Such experiences will help develop critical thinking abilities. This is what happens in our programs as robots are built!
Our after school enrichment program consists of weekly one hour sessions that last for 8-14 weeks (depending on location). Classes are conveniently held on your child’s school campus, and start immediately after school ends.
Learning with Hands-On Activities!
For years educators have stressed that students learn better “by doing” – especially in the sciences. Students of all ages learn more science-content and skills when they engage in investigation and discovery using everyday materials and the basic equipment of science. Inquiry based learning builds critical thinking skills which are important to decision making in all aspects of our children’s lives. Our carefully designed inquiry centered lessons capture children’s natural curiosity and help engage them in observation, measurement, identification of properties, and experimentation involving life, earth, environmental and physical science concepts. In doing so, they learn not only important science topics but the ability to think critically in the world around them.
Exciting program topics!
Explore Environmental Science, Rocketry, Chemistry, Paleontology, Forensics, Culinary Science, Oceanography, Biology, Medicine, Technology and many other disciplines of science. All Terrific Scientific lessons are designed to help with the development of the following scientific process skills: observing, classifying, comparing, measuring, critical thinking, predicting, hypothesizing, sequencing and experimentation. For elementary and middle school students, Terrific Scientific’s after school enrichment program consists of weekly one hour sessions that last for 8-14 weeks (depending on location). Classes are conveniently held on your child’s school campus, and start immediately after school ends.
