Fun hands-on experience with STEM concepts
Grades: 3rd - 5th Graders
Location: Somerset Elementary. Room 208.
Time: Fridays 3.45p - 5.00p
Dates: April 19th - June 7th
Program cost: $275
This session's theme: Project-based learning. Publishing a webpage. Internet.
In this session, the students will work in small teams and select a topic from a problem list. The list includes challenging and thought-provoking problems - both current and futuristic. The teams will research the problem, collaborate, plan, design, prototype, and present their findings and solution. They will also learn how to create a webpage and publish their work on a website (project pictures, video, logo, page content layout). We will discuss the basics of how the internet works, online safety, PII (Personally Identifiable Information) data, and netiquette.
We introduce the basic concepts in an age-appropriate manner with familiar visuals, fun games, and stories. We discuss the importance of making mistakes and accidental discoveries made by scientists. We discuss the importance of asking questions and ways to research to find answers to questions. Students’ interests will help guide the depth and breadth of each topic. The experiments or topics may be modified based on the questions and requests made by students.
There are 12 seats available for this Spring session program at Somerset Elementary.
If the class fills, we will maintain a waitlist for families interested in this program at a future date and/or at another location.

Please note that joining the waitlist is free and does not automatically enroll the student into the program.
There are no refunds for missed classes or cancellations after purchase. No makeup class available; however, we try our best to get students up to speed during the session.

Sign in and Sign out Policy:
Somerset students enrolled in the program will walk from their classroom to Room 208 after school ends. Please alert the classroom teacher of younger students, so that they can help your child find the correct room. Families who are dropping off a student must sign in at the Somerset office in the lobby. You may also email us to let us know about absences at info@CuriositySTEM.com.
A parent or guardian will be required to sign out the student after 5p. The school requires parents to wait outside the main entrance for pickups. Please be on time as any delays past 5:15p will result in a charge of $1 per minute.
