Afternoon Extracurricular Classes

Make your child's experience even better!

Students enrolled in Project Think's Morning Enrichment Program are also able and encouraged to participate in our afternoon extracurricular classes. These classes are offered Monday- Friday from 12:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m and provide an additional educational opportunity for your children to learn even more about a subject or class they love! 

 

Students participating one of the afternoon extracurricular classes need to bring a sack lunch and drink. Supervision is provided.

The following afternoon classes are available based on grade level:

Computers (Grades 4-8)

Robots invade Project Think! Learn computer coding for Robotics, video game and story design using Scratch, and digital story telling with MinecraftEdu

Put yourself in an undersea adventure as you create your own interactive stories, animations, games, music and art using Scratch, a programming language developed for kids by MIT. Using Scratch, you will learn important design and problem-solving skills as you work collaboratively with others and share your digital technology projects on the web.

Additionally, showcase your research and learning using MinecraftEdu (the educational version) to design your own interactive stories.

Project Thinkers will also have the opportunity to code with robots -  Spheros - a spherical programmable bot. Students will be able to control and maneuver the Sphero through a self-designed obstacle course by coding the sensors and motor inside!

 

Session 2 will build on season 1 skills, offering intermediate and advanced instruction for those returning.
