We are excited to launch our new Applied STEM Program!!
What is our Applied STEM Program?
Building off the success of our Applied Robotics and Virtual Programs we’ve created an in-person program for kids that want a lot of variety. Kids rotate to a different STEM discipline every 2 classes.
For example, students entering our Level I Program, the schedule looks like this:
- Class 1: Scratch Coding
- Class 2: Scratch Coding
- Class 3: 3D Design with Tinkercad (project-based work))
- Class 4: 3D Printing (3D print their project)
- Class 5: Video Game Design – Bloxels
- Class 6: Video Game Design – Bloxels
- Class 7: Robotics
- Class 8: Robotics
What is a Level?
A Level is a series of 8 Weekly Classes of 90 minutes each. We currently have 6 Levels of curriculum for this program which usually takes 1-2 years to complete.
What STEM Activities are included in Levels II – VI?
Give us a call or arrange a time to visit the Studio. We can’t put all out trade secrets on the Internet! 😉
Do kids do the same activities regardless of age?
While all enrolled students will work through the Levels – students that are older or happen to have a higher-level of proficiency for their age, will be assigned tasks and projects that are suitable for them. We have hundreds of lessons to keep kids engaged, learning, and having fun.
My kids have been to your robotics and camp programs before will they be doing the same activities?
No. We have hundreds of different lessons. So, if your child has taken Scratch Coding or Robotics with us when they come we just pick a lesson they haven’t done.
My child is enrolled in robotics, can they switch?
Yes, you may switch after they’ve completed their existing paid-up robotics classes. One of the benefits of multiple programs students can switch to different streams.
How does enrollment work?
Students can enroll at any time, which is similar to how all our weekly in-person programs work. Select a 90 minute timeslot and register online below or call (647-502-6319), email (firstname.lastname@example.org) for help.
What is the Class structure? How do make-up classes work?
When students arrive their work station is already set-up including that day’s class lesson, materials, and worksheet. Students work independently, assisted and coached by our trained staff. This has been our model for over 2 years now and has worked wonderful for all. If a student has to miss a class, they just pick up on their next assigned lesson. This eliminates scheduling any make-up classes.
What is the cost?
The cost is $330 + HST for 8 classes. Due to Covid, we are only asking parents to commit to 4 classes at this time, which is $165+HST.
Do students get some form of recognition for completing a Level?
Yes! Students receive a 3D Printed backpack tag representing the Level completed.
Due to Covid we are running at 1/2 capacity and space is Limited to 4 students per room, 8 in the studio at any one time. Below is the current availability per timeslot.
