Cardboard Arcade is a tuition-based after-school science enrichment program for 2nd-grade students. Students will build engineering skills as they work in teams or individually to design, test, redesign, retest, and eventually create a working arcade-type game. Students will consider game design, rules for playing, and prior science knowledge when designing their arcade games. It's an opportunity for kids to let their imaginations run wild, explore their passions and discover new ideas.
The Fernandez Garden Club will provide groups of students an opportunity to engage in project based learning through the development of a school garden. STEAM related skills will guide us through topics related to nature, nutrition, recycling, beautification, irrigation system development, composting, and agriculture. Children will also participate in service projects through the planting of wildflowers and drought resistant plants as well as weekly litter pickup and environmental protection lessons.
In FIRST® LEGO® League, children are immersed in real-world science and technology challenges. Teams research and design their own solution to a current scientific question or problem while they also build and program autonomous robots using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® technology to perform a series of missions. Through their participation, children develop valuable life skills and discover exciting career possibilities while learning that they can make a positive contribution to society.
Learn how to present in front of others in a professional manner. You will also learn how to write and edit scripts as well as run the open broadcast system with a green screen.
