All right! Check out the ABOUT page, and look at the new round table design we have for the Board. It’s VERY exciting! (It’s the way we’ve been running the CHC for a while now, but now it’s OFFICIAL.) We’re very excited about the changes, and we’d also love to add more classes and services to Thursdays. SO. Come on Community! Fill-up those classrooms! If you have a class, and you don’t see it on the calendar, then it’s not official yet. Contact Lisa Lanning, or message us on the Facebook page, and let’s kick this year off on Wednesday.
The calendar is ALSO up and ready for viewing.
FUNgineering is excited to announce a new STEM based opportunity for the homeschool community this Fall.
Starting the first week of September, FUNgineering will begin offering a variety of STEM classes for kids ages 6-14.
Classes will run during five-week minimesters throughout the Fall and Spring. Each class meets once a week for an hour and half per session. Class times are available throughout the day, with start times of 10:30am, 1:30pm, and 4:30pm.
Friday Field Trips focused on demonstrations and interactive activities will also be offered for larger groups, with a morning session (10AM-12PM) and afternoon option (1PM-3PM).
CHC Members Get $5 off your first class! Just show them your ID card.
Fall 2015 / Spring 2016 Classes
~Creative Engineering: The best class for young engineers! Using LEGO® education sets, kids work together and with instructors to learn how to build basic machines. Alongside building windmills, Ferris wheels, cars, pneumatic machines and programming sound and motion for alligators and lions, they also experiment with physics by racing their own cars.
~Science of Minecraft: We take the physics, programming, and world science of the sandbox game Minecraft to teach kids the concepts behind electrical engineering, basic physics, earth science and interactive group planning. As well, kids gain a familiarity with computer literacy. Player-versus-Player is prohibited during classes.
~Robotics: From basic collision detection to walking, students work together to both program and construct their own robots. Classes are designed to instruct beginners in basic robotics and work upward toward competitive robotics building.
~3-D Printing: Kids explore 3-D modeling and interfaces and learn about the process of 3-D printing. After learning different building tools and troubleshooting their models, students get to print an object of their own design!
The facility is open from 10am – 3pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.
Sign up for membership, and receive your Teacher ID on the first day you come to the CHC.
Our members love using the space for club meetings, curriculum swap, playdates, schooling their children, and just hanging out while classes are going on.
We have room for more classes on Thursdays – if you’ve been considering teaching — contact us!
Stay tuned. The most current calendar will be uploaded SOON!
