Look What I Created!

In this two-week session, students will be introduced to basic concepts in engineering, science, and math. Our goal is to spark scientific imagination through creative and challenging projects. We encourage teamwork and social responsibility. Is there an idea for constructing a bridge lurking in the back of your brain that we can test? Would you like to learn how to design and build a simple machine? Would you like to try your hand at studying habitats where local animals live? This is your chance to test your ideas or simply find out how things work. We'll explore our world through science and use math to explain what happened. Team projects can include many topics. Sign on to join this investigative team and let's look at the world around us to figure out how does "that" work. Warning: you may never look at science and math the same way again after having this much fun! This course is designed for students in grades 3 to 5 for the 2017-2018 school year. The $399 course fee includes lab supplies. Students will need to provide their own lunch. Pre-approval prior to registration. Shannon Skelly at sskelly@massasoit.mass.edu

Science Investigative Team

In this two-week session, students work as a team in the science lab to test materials and use what you learn to engineer your own unique design. Then we'll put your design to the test to see how it works. We'll explore a variety of topics and social issues from around the world that are fun and interesting, such as ecology, health and the body, physics, and the environment. We'll work together with team games and eye-opening hands-on activities. This course is designed for students in grades 6 to 8 for the 2017-2018 school year. The $399 course fee includes supplies. Students will need to provide their own lunch. Pre-approval prior to registration. Shannon Skelly at sskelly@massasoit.mass.edu
