ESSK After School Programs

Science Classes For Grades 1-8

2022-2023 Classes

Extreme STEAM Science Kids offers innovative, hands-on science experiences for children in grades 1-8 that introduces them to the wonders of science. Our after-school programs are not only educational, they’re also lots of fun!

Cooking

Get ready to roll up your sleeves for a hands-on experience! Children will master basic cooking skills and proper kitchen techniques while making an array of foods in our very own cooking cottage. Children will be empowered to create delicious and nutritious dishes using fresh ingredients that will be brought home for families to enjoy each week. 

Schedule

Tuesdays from 3:30-4:30 (Grades 5-6)

Tuesdays from 4:30-5:30 (Grades 7-8)

Thursdays from 3:30-4:30 (Grades 3-4)

Thursdays from 4:30-5:30 (Grades 1-2)

Survival Skills

What if you woke up tomorrow and there was no electricity, do you have what it takes to survive? Learn strategies and skills necessary to survive in a world without. Students will learn navigation, food preparation, water filtration, and will enhance their situational awareness while ensuring they possess the skills needed to endure.

Schedule

Tuesdays from 3:30-4:30 (Grades 3-4)

Tuesdays from 4:30-5:30 (Grades 1-2)

Thursdays from 3:30-4:30 (Grades 5-6)

Thursdays from 4:30-5:30 (Grades 7-8)

Robotics

What type of adventures will you take your robot on?? Students will be introduced to robots, the role they play in today’s society and their potential for the future. They will learn and use commands through integrated coding to learn the basic ins and outs of their robot.  Once familiar with the idea of programming, students will progress to a more advanced coding system. This system will allow them to maneuver their robot through different environments that they will create!  Collaborative teamwork and critical thinking will be strengthened as students take on different challenges.

Schedule

Tuesdays from 3:30-4:30 (Grades 1-2)

Tuesdays from 4:30-5:30 (Grades 3-4)

Engineering

Get ready to tinker and create!! Students will learn about the exciting world of engineering and will be introduced to the design process so vital in the creation of any new structure, mechanism, program, or invention. While collaboratively working in teams, they will design and create their way through a series of challenges by using a variety of engineering systems and hands-on materials successfully understand how the design process must be applied when creating anything new. They will learn the importance of testing and retesting their creations in an attempt to solve any problems they may encounter.

Schedule

Thursdays from 3:30-4:30 (Grades 1-2)

Thursdays from 4:30-5:30 (Grades 3-4)

Robotics & Engineering Upper Level Course

Students will utilize an innovative engineering program and learn the design process, which will assist them in creating a variety of projects. They will be challenged to find solutions to problems while working together with their partner. Once students have a working knowledge of the engineering program and process, they will move into a robotics program that uses the same materials but will incorporate a microcontroller that will introduce coding and the process used to create an autonomous machine. Their 21st Century Skills of Critical Thinking, Collaborative Teamwork, Creativity, and Adaptability will be reinforced for success in the future that awaits them.

Schedule

Tuesdays & Thursdays from 3:30-4:30 (Grades 7-8)

Tuesdays & Thursdays from 4:30-5:30 (Grades 5-6)
