Curious Kids Tech Series

Fall 2018 Schedule

Curious Kids Tech Tracks

Introductory Engineering (K-5)

Young minds need loads of new experiences to push and grow. Students grow brain cells by using their hands to explore gears and levers, simple machines, sensors, robots, and a host of other tech topics.

Introductory Science (K-5)

Science is a subject shrouded in mystery, but it is really just curiosity guided by a system called the “scientific method”. We will explore many different hands-on science experiments, but at the core, we will learn how to apply the scientific method at every turn. It will be a blast (hopefully not literally!).

Creative Tech, Engineering, and Science (K-5 & 6-12)

Young innovators and designers find new inspiration and excitement using technology as a tool in the design process. We explore electronic textiles, art in 3D, math in art, upcycled technology, and other intersections between the worlds of art and technology.

Everyday Science and Engineering (5-8)

Your growing young innovator is curious about all those devices around the house and everywhere else in their world. By exposing the inner workings of everyday life like network routers, chemistry in the kitchen, internet connected widgets, the insides of devices, and other everyday things, young innovators begin forming maps in the brain for how their world works.

Advanced Technology (6-12)

The teen brain is one of the most agile, powerful processing platforms on the planet. In fact, their brain is 25% faster than the world’s fastest supercomputer! In Advanced Technology, we take teens on journeys into drone hacking, coding/apps, using Linux, games for geeks, and other topics where engaging deeply uncovers new universes.

Advanced Science (6-12)

Science is so much more than ideas in a book. We will do hands-on experiments and explore many different techniques used to isolate the core idea in each. Above all, we will learn that science, just like every other subject, is created by people and hence malleable to new discoveries and novel ideas.
