Boston STEM Lab: After school virtual program
Boston STEM Lab is a hands-on virtual program for children ages 3-8 and their caregivers. Through play, experimentation and model making students learn about science, technology, engineering and mathematics in a fun and intuitive way. In this program students experience collaborative work, project development and experimentation through engaging practical exercises.
Classes are instructed by Eugenia Rojas – a neuroscientist PhD (learn more about Eugenia)
Fall Offerings: Session I – Two Engineering Design Classes just added!
- The senses (10 students max): Sept 14 – Oct 26 (no class on 9/28 and 10/12)
Mondays 4:15 – 5:00 (EST)
In this hands-on class students explore the five human senses through experimentation, play, and engineering design. It is a fun and engaging program for preschoolers and their caregivers!
- Matter around us (10 students max): Sept 8 – Oct 27
Tuesdays 4:15 – 5:00 (EST)
In this hands-on class students explore Earth elements and their chemistry. Students learn about the states of matter and phase transitions, they prepare mixtures by combining substances and their separation, and through experimentation, making of new things from scratch and doing science-art students discover a new world.
- Microscopic discoveries (10 students max): Sept 9 – Oct 28
Wednesdays 4:15-5:15 (EST)
In this hands-on class students learn about microscopes, the history and technology behind these and as they do they discover the wonders of microscopic life. **Students don’t need to own a microscope to take this class!**
- Math, Problem Solving and Pre-coding (8 students max): Sept 10 – Oct 29 **For students who already attended Boston STEM Lab in the past ONLY**
Thursdays 4:15-5:00 (EST)
In this hands-on class students perform experiments, male models and play games as they develop mathematical thinking skills. The introduction to numbers, quantities, patterns, data collection, plotting, pre-coding and others are introduced with an experimental approach. This class is fun and engaging. For students that have taken other Boston STEM Lab classes ONLY.
Materials for all classes are inexpensive and easily found at home or at your convenience store. Eugenia will suggest replacements if there are any you can’t find!
