STEAM On The Road for Pint Sized Scientists

Are your children innovative and curious? Do they like to learn by creating and analyzing? Do they enjoy building and experimenting? These young engineers will learn literacy skills through the integration of S.T.E.A.M. programs.
Developed for 10 - 24 children, an AAALC certified preschool teacher will deliver programming to young scientists ages 3-5 during a one hour interactive, hands on class. Note: Some topics may require a few minutes of additional time based on age or number of participants. Programs may choose from one of the following topics or request a special topic be developed based on a specific program or theme.
Hour of Code
Students as young at 3 years old can begin to learn to code. AAALC teachers will bring technology and materials required to work with students on various coding programs, providing some tips and trips for the classroom teacher to continue lessons using available resources long after AAALC is gone.
Robotics and coding are becoming critical parts of the lives of today's youth. Youth are being prepared for jobs that don't yet exist and need to be prepared to think, create and inspire! Robotics builds science, technology, engineering and math skills, providing students with real world experiences, while practicing critically thinking about problems and solutions and developing programming skills and team building. Students as young as four years old will understand how robotics impacts the world around them and contributes to their community. They will learn to create a simple robot that they can take home and share with family and friends. These young engineers will love creating unique robots from everyday materials.
Oh the Places You’ll Go With STEAM In Tow!
Young scientists will be out on the loose as they explore the wild world of Dr. Seuss!
Science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) will take campers down an incredible path.
Stack the cat’s hat and engineer a zoo, these STEAM activities will stump just a few.
Apples, butter, green eggs and ham; make and create them. They aren’t just for Sam!
Yertle the Turtle, Blue Fish and more….you never know what lessons might be in store.
Take a car, bike or train; or just come on two feet. You can’t find this camp on Mulberry Street.
Our Community: Beyond My Backyard
Young scientists will explore the incredible resources within their own community, learning about the benefits, challenges and opportunities that exist right where they live. Beyond My Backyard will allow campers to learn about our local waterways, ecosystems, governments, resources and other things necessary to build and sustain a community. Through engineering, exploration and yes...even some explosions....students will recreate, solve and discover!
Animal Antics!
Lions, tigers and bears....not quite! But young scientists entering PreK or Kindergarten can join us for some Animal Antics as they explore the world of live animals. This STEAM program integrates science, technology, engineering, art and math activities while working with fuzzy, furry, scaly, wet and slithery creatures. They will engross little zookeepers in a variety of animal explorations. Curious mathematicians will measure distance as they jump like frogs while budding entomologists will observe how strong the smallest creatures of the earth can be! Activities and animals will vary each day.  Please be aware that children will be interacting with live animals at each session.
STEAM Into Fairy Tales
Join us for some Fairy Tale Fun with STEAM programs that integrate science, technology, engineering, art and math activities. This magical program will engross students in the science of Fairy Tales as they become a scientist, explorer, reader, writer and thinker. The Frog Prince may take young biologists through a variety of frog related activities as we explore the life cycle of a frog, measure distances, create habitats, understand amphibians and raise your very own tadpoles. Ladies and gentlemen, this is "ribbiting" stuff! Stories like The Three Little Pigs will encourage young engineers through a variety of problems and solutions as they don hardhats to try different building materials to create solutions for our three friends. Students may meet a real live pig and understand the story elements of The Three Little Pigs while working through a variety of reading, writing, social studies, math and science tasks. There is nothing "boaring" about these lessons!
Eating Our Way Through STEAM
This delicious trip into STEAM will cook up some chemistry, melt into math and complete excellent edible engineering projects. Using everyday snacks and cool food items, pint sized scientist will study various STEAM concepts related to food! Do you know how to bounce an egg? What foods “blow up” when you put them together? This is a fun, interactive camp that engages children from start to finish. Note: Campers will be exposed to many different kinds of foods and food prep. Note: A list of foods utilized in the program will be provided to staff. Students with food allergies may participate with parent permission.
Buggin’ Out With STEAM!
Pint Sized scientists will learn how important insects and bugs are to the world. They will examine the creepy, the crawly, the silly and the strong as they observe, explore and compare. Young entomologists will understand the ecology, classification, behavior, life cycle, population and physiology of insects and bugs. Beware: Student may go home with a few new pets!
