Don't be shocked! Introduction to Electricity
Instructor: Mrs. Leahy
This course will use the TOPS curriculum of teaching electricity through hands-on experiments, in a safe way! We'll be learning- what is electricity and how it's made. We'll make simple and then more complex circuits using standard household items (batteries, mini lightbulbs, aluminum foil), and we'll make some fun projects, too. The class will teach series vs. parallel, insulators, switches, and resistance as it relates to conducting electricity.
There will be an extra $8 charge for the class, as each child will need their own kit (which I'll be supplying) to include copper wire, batteries, light bulbs, steel wool, etc. They will take home their kits and projects at the end of the semester.
Week 1 – Overview of atoms. Create our first simple circuit.
Week 2 - Parallel vs series vs opposition series circuits.
Week 3 - Insulators and conductors.
Week 4 - Create your own circuit board game.
Week 5 - Electrical resistance and a 'flashy' experiment.
Week 6 - Switches.
Week 7 - Learn a new language - electrical drawings.
Week 8 - Final project - Electrical maze.

Desserts Around the World
Instructor: Mrs. Davidson
What better way of exploring other people’s culture than through food! In this class we will be making different kinds of desserts that you would traditionally find in the countries we will focus on. Student’s will also familiarize themselves with common kitchen tools and techniques. Not all desserts we make will be to everyone’s liking, and that’s okay! I only ask that your child be open to trying new things. Some of the classes will involve some cooking/baking, and other classes will just be for assembling desserts.
There will be an extra $5 charge for the class for the cost of food
Please provide your child with an apron for this class.
