$149.00 – $257.00
Virtual STEM Lab: Monday Spring Session
- Math, problem solving and pre-coding: April 26 – June 21. No class on 05/31.
Mondays 3:15-4:00 (EST)
In this class students perform experiments, make models and play games as they develop mathematical thinking and problem solving skills. The introduction to numbers, quantities, patterns, data collection, plotting, pre-coding and others are presented with an experimental approach. This class is fun and engaging.
Session consists of 8 virtual, 45 minute long, weekly sessions taught via Zoom by Eugenia Rojas, PhD.
What is the structure of the class?
The instructor will be guiding the activities remotely on live stream video using Zoom (no account needed). A link to zoom meeting and a password to access the meeting will be shared and you and your child/children can easily perform the experiments for this class from home. You only need to collect a few materials previous to the class that are of easy access at home.
Each class is dedicated to one topic and it follows the following structure:
- Welcome to class and introduction: greeting of students and caregivers, brief discussion to introduce the topic of the class.
- Story time: the reading of a picture book related to the topic of the class.
- Class activity: Hands-on and dynamic activities, which may include experiments, science-arts and crafts, engineering challenges and/or games.
- Clean up and good-bye
Materials for class are inexpensive and easily found at home or at your convenience store. Eugenia will suggest replacements if there are any you can’t find! Some examples for this class are: dice, sticker dots, mini erasers, legos, food coloring, play-dough, tape, glue, scissors, paper, markers or crayons, ruler.
About the instructor- Eugenia Rojas, PhD
Eugenia develops and instructs STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) enrichment programs for children. Her hands-on classes take advantage of children’s natural curiosity to facilitate learning through play and inquiry, building critical and analytical thinking. In her classroom students learn to generate hypotheses and experiment to experience scientific learning. Students participate in collaborative projects, provide their own input, try and make things.
