Instructors provided students a blueprint — ahem, "green print" — of the tree they will build their tree houses in and, with a classroom full of crafting supplies at their fingertips, they began to build some pretty magical treehouses.
Students learned the fundamentals of outdoor survival including food sourcing, shelter, resources, and navigation.
Students jumped into the world of programming, learning the fundamentals of coding and animations. After mapping out mazes for Sphero robots, they worked in teams to program coordinates commanding the bot to move throughout the maze — without going over the walls! — before moving to the computer lab where they created their own animations.
Students worked on their floor plans and designs for a house they would love to dream in after learning how to scale a home and furniture from 10 feet to a small square on grid paper. Once they drew up the blue prints they began to build homes from foam boards and paper.
Students hit it outta the park in team work while on the field. The rain stayed away and allowed our team to play outside. Some learned how to play for the first time and others just had fun playing!
Today was electrifying for the students as they learn about conductivity, metals, and various solutions. Students had the opportunity to learn and then make their own metal tag where they designed their own design and used the electricity to etch it into the metal.
All signs point toward somewhere; in this case, they point toward nowhere. Students learn about the purpose of signs and their colors and symbols, then make signs that are complete opposites. Students then post their signs around campus for everyone to enjoy.
Students in Casino Math learned how to make their own card games after learning the fundamentals of games like poker and blackjack.
Students make hover crafts with wooden tops, tape, and plastic sheets on the bottom to make the craft move. They use an electric leaf blower to blow air into the hole in the top of the craft down into the plastic pocket they created. With strategic holes poked in the bottom, it creates enough air to stay inflated and also lightly push across the floor.
Students taking Archery add new fundamentals to their quiver of skills. Instructors gave tips on stance, position, aiming, and focus. Watching our students grow certainly tugs at our heartstrings!
