 is Fun for Kids, Grades K - 2

Want to save on tuition? Be a parent volunteer for a STEM program.

DESCRIPTION:  STEM classes introduce different concepts each week, as children explore Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math through hands-on, creative exploration. Families receive a descriptive newsletter after each class, detailing concepts covered, activities, and the name of the book read as part of each class.

BEAVER ENGINEERING - Can you build a dam with rocks, sticks, moss, Legos, clay, and sand? That was the STEM challenge Loker children took on as they attempted to hold back the flow of water from breaching their dams. It took teamwork, much discussing and theorizing, but after three or four re-designs, the teams of "engineers" achieved success. The dam fashioned with sand yielded the quickest result.
