Courses

The Engineering For Kids STEM Club is going virtual! You and your online friends will explore a different STEM topic each week led by an EFK teacher in a Zoom meeting. Kits will be available for pick-up at the Handke Center before the course starts and will contain almost everything you need to complete each week's project. You just add a few basic supplies and a workspace that can get messy! Have fun working "together apart" to solve each week's challenge!

Computer coding is the language that tells computers what to do. It allows us to communicate with machines and create software programs and apps. Online Coding Club is led by live teachers who will help you learn coding skills in a fun and easy way. Level 2 keeps you building on your knowledge of block programming, and adding random motion, basic loops, and conditionals while you create your own game.

Have fun with three STEM topics -- chemistry, aerospace and electricity. Explore the three most common states of matter: solid, liquid and gas. Discover the four forces that allow planes and rockets to fly: thrust, drag, weight and lift. Build and test an electromagnet and learn how the electromagnetic field was first discovered. Your kit is mailed to your house and contains nearly everything you need to perform cool experiments -- all you add is water!

Explore two STEM topics -- engineering and chemistry -- in one fun kit! Step into engineering by designing and building your own Art-Bot with a motor and battery holder, and give it a personality with the craft supplies included in the kit. Then, head to your home science lab to test the pH of six everyday substances. Watch as colors change to indicate whether the substance is acid, base or neutral. Kits are mailed to your home and contain nearly everything you need to create your project and perform experiments! You just provide a few common household items.

Get your hands on these STEM topics -- Slime and Catapults. Investigate the chemical reaction that creates slime by mixing up your own batches of glow, silky and Floam slime, and discover why slime is delightfully bouncy, stretchy and gooey. Then, build three different catapults to examine how levers, energy, and Newton's Laws of Motion all work together as you fling ping-pong balls while practicing your launching and aiming skills. Your kit is mailed to your home and contains almost everything needed to create your projects -- you just add water!
