Virtual STEAM After-School Clubs
Two great Virtual STEAM clubs offered online through SMARTS!
Who: Grades 3-5 (limited enrollment)
What: This club is for children who love to imagine, problem solve and design! They work as undercover “Operative Design Agents” (ODA) on top-secret design projects that require imagination to solve real world problems using tools and mixed media. Children work independently and in teams on unique research challenges that reimagine uses for everyday materials and then they run “tests” to see if their creations were successful.
Cost: $40.00/child Fee is responsibility of family.
Scholarships based on need are available from SMARTS
When: Thursdays, January 14, 21, 28, February 4, 2021 4:30-5:30 PM
