Fall Session: BRIXOLOGY
The Mad Science BRIXOLOGY Program sets the foundation for our next generation of makers! This program is unlike any Bricks program your kid has ever done and offers a unique application of the engineering design process with custom builds designed with a master Lego builder and our very own Research and Development team! Kids learn about different types of engineering and then team up to construct a different engineering-themed project using LEGO® bricks. They learn about aerospace engineering while assembling a space station. They explore mechanical engineering as they build boats and vehicles. That’s not all, from carnival rides to drawing machines, mechanical animals to truss bridges, your future engineer will build upon their creativity to solve real-world design challenges, while developing their problem-solving and team-building skills. Let the tinkering begin!
Winter Session: SECRET AGENT LAB
Look out 007! Secret Agent Lab is in session! Students will learn about forensics, evidence gathering and analysis, while building their skills of recall and observation. These gumshoes will develop the tools of the trade to sniff out forgeries and counterfeits. This is the perfect class for students who are seeking to learn how investigative science relates to their world. Students will become spies in training and learn that detectives are really just scientists in disguise!
Spring Session: ENERGIZE IT!
Hop on board the Mad Science express for a high-speed, hands-on science experience guaranteed to energize your mind! Explore the many facets of energy, forces, motion, potions, and yes…slime! Reach for your potential…and kinetic energy as you experiment with gadgets, cars, and catapults. Discover how to make objects disappear and reappear as we unravel mysteries of magic using science. Slide down the colorful pH scale and make liquids bubble, fizz, and pop. Learn the physics of optical illusions and build your own periscope. Ooze into a gooey hour of sliming around and make multiple slime concoctions. Act out hot molecule movements and discover some unusual applications of glow-in-the dark technology. Explore forces by making centrifuges, spinning gyroscopes, and building your own center of gravity game. This program is so energizing, even gravity won’t keep you down! Put your seat belt on…these energetic classes are going to make you have a blast!
