Explorers Classes
K, 1st, & 2nd Grade

Explorer’s innate curiosity flourishes as they explore science, design, engineering, and art. Each unit, we will think creatively about the world around us and naturally gain knowledge and skills through guided and student-directed explorations. Check out Explorers' programming below!

Contraptions Galore: Engineering Challenges

Kids of all ages love contraptions- and getting to design and build contraptions from recyclables is a fun way to flex those creative neurons!

 

Each week, we will work individually and in groups to tackle engineering challenges such as:

  • Build a trampoline that will bounce a Lego figure more than a foot in the air.  

  • Design and build a house for the Three Little Pigs that will hold up against the Big Bad Wolf's huffing and puffing.

  • Design and build a straw boat that will hold the most pennies without sinking.

As we work through the challenges and build gadget solutions, we will wonder, imagine, design and plan, build, test, and share our products.  Your children won't realize it, but as they work through the engineering process, they will refine math, physics, engineering and design skills.

Homeschool Contraptions Galore:

Engineering Challenges

Kids of all ages love contraptions- and getting to design and build contraptions from recyclables is a fun way to flex those creative neurons!

 

Contraptions Galore is packed with new challenges! We will work individually and in groups to tackle engineering challenges such as:

  • Design an air powered vehicle.  

  • Design and build a contraption that will help Jack escape the giant and get down from the Bean Stalk.

  • Design and build a water tower that will hold a container of water without spilling.

 

As we work through the challenges and build gadget solutions, we will wonder, imagine, design and plan, build, test, and share our products. Your children won't realize it, but as they work through the engineering process, they will refine math, physics, engineering and design skills.
