Sure, you know how to use your computer, but do you know how it works? What is an I/O port? What is a motherboard? How does the memory work with the hard drive? You’ll take a working computer apart, examine the pieces, and put it back together! Will it still work? That’s up to you! Find out why those disks are called “floppies” when they are hard. Also explore the evolution of personal computing and what tomorrow may hold for technology.
Interested in Veterinary Sciences? Love animals? This is a great opportunity to explore the many career opportunities that would allow you to pursue your passion! Explore the rewarding and sometimes WILD world of working with animals. This class will investigate exotic animals, wildlife rehabilitation, Pet First Aid and CPR and animal massage. Students will even get a behind the scenes hospital tour of an Animal Emergency Hospital and Plumpton Park Zoo! This is just the beginning of all the fun things we have planned!! Join us for a great week AND maybe even a new career path! Students will be required to fill out additional materials for field trips, etc.
Electronics are an integral part of our daily life, but do you know what is inside of them? In this beginning class on electricity and electric circuits we will explore just that. In this solder free class, we will explore a multitude of different circuits using lights, sounds, sensors, radio waves, and Boolean logic. Students will learn to use volt meters, read and write electrical diagrams, and build a working AM/FM radio they can take home with them!
Do you know what a robot is capable of doing? Get ready to take control! You will build robots, program them to accomplish tasks, respond to external stimuli, and overcome challenges. Using the NXT brick from Lego(TM), you will control the robot using NXT programming language and software programming techniques. Experience the challenges of navigation, avoiding and climbing over obstacles, and moving objects.
Combine your two favorite activities: cooking and eating! Make mouth-watering meals that comfort your body and soul such as mac & cheese, spaghetti and meatballs, pizza, soup, and desserts. Learn about nutrition, proper food handling, and kitchen safety along the way.
