APRIL - JUNE 2017 AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS

AT HIGHLANDS ELEMENTARY

If parents have any questions about these programs or suggestions on future after school programs at Highlands, please contact Angela Santoro at angelasantoro99@gmail.com or 778-229-3843.

Big thanks to Miss Wright & Mrs. Posnikoff for volunteering their classrooms for programming again this term, which has allowed us to keep offering more programs on a variety of days to suit more student schedules.

These programs are very popular at the school, so no refunds are available once programs have started.

PROGRAMMING OVERVIEW

Note that all programs except for Artmania can be joined late for a pro-rated session fee. Artmania programs can be joined late but there is no reduction in session fees because the same amount of high quality art materials are used.

Description:

Specialized art education with Artmania develops engaged, confident, well-rounded, creative children. Artistic activities train the brain to think spatially, solve problems creatively and supports development in all other disciplines. In the Human Body & Proportion classes, students will learn to draw a human figure from the ground up. This class will propel student sketches of figures to the next level. Artists will gain skills to draw a human figure with the right proportions, and they will make a beautiful mixed media painting as well. In the Fabric Art & African Mask classes, students will learn about the history and craftsmanship of African masks. They will take those lessons and apply them along with their newly learned artmania skills to create a collographed fabric pencil case and their very own mask!

BRAINSTEM: LITTLE BRAINS – ROBOTICS ENGINEERING 2 (6 WEEK SERIES)
(K - 1 boys & girls)

Dates: Tuesdays 3:00 to 4:00 pm in Ms. Wright’s Classroom (April 4 – May 9)
Cost: $135 + GST for 6 x 1 hour sessions

Description: A robotics engineer is responsible for design, creating, and programming robots. Robotic systems that are able to 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, a number of possible designs, the materials, 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: SPECIALISTS/MANAGERS: CIVIL ENGINEERING (6 WEEK SERIES)
(Grade 2-7 boys & girls)

Dates: Tuesdays 3:00 to 4:30 pm in Mrs. Wright’s Classroom (April 4 – May 9)
Cost: $160 + GST for 6 x 1.5 hr sessions

Description:
Civil engineering includes the design and construction of buildings, roads, bridges, and dams. It is one of the oldest forms of engineering. Knowledge about materials, designs, and construction process allows us to explain the construction of such world wonders as the Tokyo Skytree, the tallest tower in the world in Japan. The specialist and managers will learn about forces, materials, structural design, foundations, and physics concepts. They will use math to measure and improve their prototypes while learning concepts of: design, building, and testing his or her skyscrapers, bridges, and roads. They will use his or her creativity and curiosity under the STEM methodology while having loads of FUN.

BRAINSTEM: LITTLE BRAINS – AEROSPACE ENGINEERING (6 WEEK SERIES)
(K - 1 boys & girls, maximum 12 students)

Dates: Tuesdays 3:00 to 4:00 pm in Ms. Wright’s Classroom (May 16-June 20)
Cost: $135 + GST for 6 x 1 hour sessions

Description: Aerospace engineering involves the design and construction of planes and space shuttles. Aeronautical engineering covers craft that stay inside the Earth’s atmosphere (such as commercial planes) while astronautical engineering covers craft that leave the Earth’s atmosphere (such as space shuttles or rocket ships). 
In this program the little brains will learn about the fundamentals of aerospace engineering discovering about: aerodynamics; gravity; velocity; forces to lift; drag and thrust on objects; and the Bernoulli principle. The kids will use their creativity and curiosity to design and build their own flying machines while having fun.

BRAINSTEM: SPECIALISTS/MANAGERS: MECHANICAL ENGINEERING (6 WEEK SERIES)
(Grade 2-7 boys & girls, maximum 12 students)

Dates: Tuesdays 3:00 to 4:30 pm in Mrs. Wright’s Classroom (May 16 – June 20)
Cost: $160+ GST for 6 x 1.5 hr sessions

Description: A mechanical engineer designs mechanical systems, machines, and tools to improve our lives using a number of important physics concepts and principles. These principles include energy, fluid mechanics, forces, and characteristics of materials. As well these engineers are responsible for machine maintenance and other mechanically functioning equipment. 
The specialist and managers will work with and learn about simple machines, mechanical design, physics concepts, kinetic energy, mechanical energy, pneumatics and more. Working in teams, designing, building, and testing their own machines and devices will help the children in discovering and having fun while they using STEM.
