PROGRAM #1

Artmania: Artists In History -  Paul Klee and Andy Warhol; Edvard Munch and Hundertwasser: (Choice of 4 or 8 Class Series)

DescriptionSpecialized art education with Artmania develops engaged, confident, well-rounded, creative children. Artistic activities train the brain to think spatially, solve problems creatively & supports development in all other disciplines. First 4 weeks: The artists Klee and Warhol were masters at their art! As each artist came from a different time in our history they both went about their art in ways that spoke of their time. We will encorporate these unique painting techniques to create a Klee colourist inspired landscape and your own Warhol inspired hand print painting . Second 4 weeks: Architecture & colour theory are key components of the artist Hundertwasser. Lets make a painting Hundertwasser style! Students will learn the landscape painting & organic layering techniques of Edvard Munch & encorporate your own self portrait.

PROGRAM #2

BRAINSTEM: LITTLE BRAINS (Chemical Engineering & Robotics) (10 WEEK SERIES)

(For Grades K-1)

Dates: Tuesdays 3:00 to 4:00 pm in the library April 3 - June 12 (no class May 22 because teacher away)
Cost: $225 + GST for 10 x 1 hour sessions

Description
Chemical Engineering uses science to process raw materials and chemicals into useful forms. They can lead to the discovery of important new materials and processes. These discoveries may be useful for other engineering disciplines or just to make our live easier. The little brains will learn about solutions, chemical reaction, mixtures, solids, liquids, absorption, and more concepts while using his or her creativity and curiosity the STEM methodology. A Robotics Engineer is responsible for design, creating, and programming robots. Robotic systems that can perform duties that humans are either unable or prefer not to complete. Robots help to make jobs safer, easier, and more efficient, particularly in the manufacturing industry. The little brains will discover what is behind a robot, several possible designs, the materials used, what software is, and the programming using the LEGO┬« WeDo materials. Computers will also be used to build their robotic animals and toys. This will be under the guidance of our leaders and assistants under the STEM education programs.

BRAINSTEM: SPRING SPECIALISTS (Marine & Aeronautical Aerospace Engineering ) (10 WEEK SERIES)

(For Grades 2-7)

Dates: Wednesdays 3:00 to 4:30 pm in the library (April 4 - June 13; no class May 23 because teacher away)
Cost: $300 + GST for 8 x 1.5 hr sessions

Description
In the future, many kids may work in this in and around the world’s waterways, so in this Marine Engineering lesson they will have the opportunity to learn how marine devices work. The oceans are particularly important the health of the world and provides half of the worlds oxygen supply from marine plants and algae. Oceans are an important way of transporting goods and people around the globe. Kids will use his or her creativity discovering an important balance of marine ecology, conservation, recreational water use, and how to transport using the Ocean. The Marine engineer organizes people, places, equipment, and information. They ensure that work areas operate safely and efficiently. They are always looking to continually improve our recreational or professional lives. The specialist and managers will understand how they can use the STEM model to improve how they can develop new technologies in a safe and productive way. They will design, build, test and improve different marine transportation devices using their creativity and having fun. Aerospace Aeronautical Engineering involves the design and construction of planes and space shuttles. Aeronautical engineering covers crafts that stay inside the Earth’s atmosphere (such as commercial planes) while astronautical engineering covers craft that leave the Earth’s atmosphere (theory and practice of navigation beyond Earth’s atmosphere, such as space shuttles). In this program the specialist and managers will learn about the fundamentals of astronautical industry discovering about aerodynamics; gravity; velocity; acceleration; forces to lift, drag and thrust objects; aerodynamics like Bernoulli principle; and space environment characteristics. They will use math to improve their results; will discover about the importance of the materials in this engineering branch; and use his or her creativity and curiosity to design, build and test their own prototypes at the same time they have fun.
