 2018-2019 After-School Clubs

(For Grades 1-5 but may vary by school. Some topics available for Pre-K and K. Check your school’s schedule.)

Please register at least 5 days prior to the club start date.   

Clubs have a min. and max. number of participants.

Slime Time 

Prepare to get elbow deep in gooey fun as we make different slime creations over this 3-week intro into the world of polymer chemistry. You’ll make amazing color changing slime, textured slime with growing orbs and neon slime that you can turn into art! 

 

Magical Mixtures   

Join Science Explorers magical mystery lab and explore the science behind the magic! Reveal a rainbow of colors in our acid and base lab, mix up an exothermic reaction to create a “matter monster”, conduct experiments on mystery powders and uncover the secrets of glow-in-the-dark slime, disappearing crystals and magic sand. These fun-filled experiments will amaze you and your friends!

 

Invention Lab

Calling all inventors! If you like to tinker with things, then boy do we have a club for you. Construct a metal detector, create a circuit with a switch for your own mini shiner, build a cool catapult and make a circuit to send secret messages with Morse code.

 

Blinded by the Light

LIGHT! It bends, it bounces, it scatters! Explore the science behind color and light in this exciting hands-on exploration of the science that illuminates our world. Make a rockin’ rainbow tube, create a light maze, experiment with UV detectors, and make a luminescent goo tube. 

 

Anatomy Academy      

Head, shoulders, knees and toes, eyes, ears, mouth and nose…lungs, heart, brain and skin…where should our Pre-Med club begin? Take a journey into the human body as you examine your heaviest organ (your skin!), find out how to make your memory better, and learn how the heart pumps blood. We’ll continue our fun in the lab as we grow polymer brains, examine a real sheep heart, made a model lung, and extract DNA from a banana. 

 

Earth’s Mysteries

Join us as we learn more about this planet we call home. Find out who is predator and who is prey in the food chain as we dissect an owl pellet and see what was for dinner, discover strange animals and even rocks that glow, investigate non-point pollution and make a filter to clean water. There is so much to learn about our fascinating world!

New at Select Locations – Coding with Rad Robots!

Crazy Coding with Rad Robots (Grades K-2) (Available only at select locations)

Join us for a club full of robotics, programming and pre-coding concepts. Every week we will get one-on-one exploration time with Rad the Robot as we help him find his way through our hands-on challenges. We’ll learn the basics of sequential key programing and algorithms as we help Rad play a game, see what happens when Rad makes a mistake and learn how we can help him “debug” a program, and help Rad find a treasure.  Our tech circle at the end of each club will reinforce learning as students are rewarded with a collectable sticker with the new concept and vocab word of the day.

Robotics 101 (Grades 3-5) (Available only at select locations)

Come and explore the world of programming, sensors and artificial intelligence. We’ll be learning about basic robotic sensors, how robots think and how to control robotic behaviors. Each week is a  great opportunity for students to use their Computational Thinking skills to complete challenges and games. Students will be designing and building a robotic lion with a sound sensor, build a crazy robotic insect with an infrared sensor that we’ll round out with a wild bug race, and program a robot to write their name.

 

We offer these after-school clubs to any elementary school in PA, NJ, DE, MD, and DC. If your child’s school does not currently offer one of our after school clubs please have them contact us!
