Project Think is an academic enrichment program with two distinct three-week sessions. Each session is comprised of three layers, the morning classes that all ages attend and optional afternoon classes and daycare.
Morning classes - 8:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. – Students are engaged in active, project-based learning with talented, credentialed master teachers.
Afternoon classes – 12:00 – 3:00 p.m. (optional) - Students select one afternoon class each three week session where they delve into one of the following content areas:
Extended Daycare (optional) – 7:00 – 8:30 a.m. and 3:00 – 6:00 p.m. The Project Think daycare program includes a variety of fun activities daily for students to choose from including: art projects, board games, and computer programs/coding. Chess (instruction provided) and outside games are also offered in the afternoon.
In addition to the enriching classes, there are special activities that add to the excitement and learning at Project Think:
Special visitors frequent Project Think for assemblies throughout the program. From exotic musical instruments, to animals, and more- students are constantly learning hands- on!
Each week students are challenged to use their logic and reasoning skills (asking yes/no questions) to discover the mystery animal of the week. The exotic animals appear at a brief assembly during snack time on Fridays.
Students are all given a Project Think t-shirt that they can wear any day. If they wear their shirts on Fridays, however, they are entered into a raffle with fun prizes for each class.
Newsletters about the Young Thinkers Program and Grades 3-8 Program (including afternoon classes) are shared at the end of the first week, each session, and available on the website. They inform parents of what the students experienced week one as well as a forecast of the next two weeks.
There is an open house, Family Night, the night before the last day of each session where families can visit the classrooms, talk with the teachers, and see a streaming slideshow of the Project Thinkers engaged in their classes (7:00-8:00 p.m.). Family guests are welcome!
