Super STEM Friday Sign Up

 Super STEM Friday Clubs:

Minecraft Club

We will be using a special version of Minecraft specifically for classroom use. It contains many additions to the original game that make it more useful and appropriate in a school setting. There are  a library of lessons and activities that are available for free, all of which are centered around the MineCraft world. Over 5,500 teachers in 40+ countries have used MinecraftEdu to teach subjects from STEM to Language to History to Art.

3D Printing Club

3D modeling (or modelling) is the process of developing a mathematical representation of any three-dimensional surface of an object (either inanimate or living) via specialized software. The product is called a 3D model. We will use a software program called Sketchup.
SketchUp is a 3D modeling computer program for a wide range of drawing applications such as architectural, interior design, civil and mechanical engineering, film, and video game design.
Not only can you make an item, but in this class you will be able to create the item by printing it in a 3D form.

S.T.E.M Sports Club

“From the physics behind a perfect football spiral to the chemistry of a red hot race car, science, technology, engineering and math help power many of our favorite sports.” During sports and STEM learn about the friction of a ball during a tennis match, a wide receiver sprinting past a defender in football, and the air pressure that makes a basketball bounce. STEM is sports! Come learn how to be a better athlete and mega mind at the same time!

Full S.T.E.A.M Ahead Club

Each week we will immerse ourselves into a creative S.T.E.M. project using ART techniques.  We will learn, play, get messy and especially, have fun!

Service Club

In the Service Club Mrs. Schofield will be facilitating several projects that will allow students to give back to the school, the community, and the world at large.  Some of the activities she has planned are things like writing letters to servicemen and servicewomen, tying quilts to donate to hospitals, making signs for things like school fundraisers, making cards for things like Teacher Appreciation week, etc.  Participating in service activities has so many different benefits–and it will be FUN!  Join this club if you want to brighten your own day by helping others.

Mad Scientist Club

Sign up with our “Mad Scientist” Mrs. Ghan to shake, rattle, and roll–blowing your mind with out-of-this-world science experiments. If you love Bill Nye, this club is for you. You’ll leave this club thinking like an Einstein!

Writing Rams Club

Students will create a children’s book digitally.  The book will be a story that explains math problems and science experiments for 1st – 3rd graders. In the program, students will illustrate from the library of clip art, enhanced drawing tools for doodles or choose to upload photos or scanned artwork.  Once complete, the writing project will become a hardbound book!  Then the books will be used in classrooms for Quest’s elementary kids.

Coding {Quest} Club

We will be using two iPad apps, Hopscotch and Code School (for beginners or experienced coders), to learn and create a variety of projects – JavaScript, jQuery 2.0, Objective-C language; creating pixel art, Flappy Bird and more.

Rube Goldberg Club

So what is a Rube Goldberg machine? It is a comically involved, complicated invention, laboriously contrived to perform a single operation. The possibilities are limitless on what you can invent. What do you have to do on a regular basis that could be made easier, or at least more interesting, using a Rube Goldberg machine? Now you can invent a machine to make your everyday life easier.

Ingenuity

In this club, we will learn about innovative scientific and technological breakthroughs and the futuristic inventions that are coming our way. You will also have the chance to work in a small group to imagine and design your own ingenious creation
