Flight Club is a tuition-based after-school program for Kindergarten and First Grade students in Northside Independent School District. It is an engineering program where students work in teams or individually to design, test, and modify 4 tools that interact with air - kites, parachutes, paper airplanes, and simple rockets. Students learn about the basic principles of flight and design when creating each of these tools. It's a great opportunity for students to challenge their thinking and gives them hands-on ways to see how these tools are built and how they work!

T.I.P Lab Every Other Wednesday Fall Semester from 3:30PM to 5:00PM. Every Wednesday Spring Semester from 3:30PM to 5:00PM.
Tomorrow’s innovators practice imaginative thinking and teamwork. Guided by adult Coaches, FIRST LEGO League teams research a real-world problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc., and are challenged to develop a solution. They also must design, build, program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS® technology, then compete on a table-top playing field.
It all adds up to tons of fun while they learn to apply science, technology, engineering, and math concepts (STEM), plus a big dose of imagination, to solve a problem. Along their discovery journey, they develop critical thinking and team-building skills, basic STEM applications, and even presentation skills, as they must present their solutions with a dash of creativity to judges. They also practice the Program’s signature Core Values.

If your child enjoys building things, figuring out how something works, and likes working with their hands, then Solar Cars is the club for them. In this club, students will build a solar-powered car from scratch and race their car with teams from other NISD elementary schools at the Annual NISD Solar Car Races. This club is for fourth and fifth-grade students.
STEAM Team is a club to encourages third-grade students to use their creativity to design a working Rube Goldberg machine that performs a simple task. Students use scientific knowledge, creativity, and grit to work through each challenge.
