WHAT DOES A TYPICAL DAY LOOK LIKE?

 

A typical day is packed with fun, learning, and creativity from start to finish...

  1. (7:30am - 8:30am) Check In + Breakfast – As you check your child in, they will be greeted and welcomed with a healthy breakfast snack.
  2. (8:30am - 9:00am) Mindful Mornings – Before the day of STEAM kicks into gear, students can engage in character education or meditation and yoga exercises to center their minds in a calm and relaxed atmosphere.
  3. (9:00am - 11:00am) Morning STEAM Lab + Fitness Fun – During this time we will divide the students into groups based on grade level. While half our students dismiss into their morning STEAM Lab, the other half will engage in a fun fitness activity either outside or in the gym for an hour. Then they switch!
  4. (11:00am - 12:00pm) Lunch Break – We provide nutritious USDA certified afternoon lunch. Our lunch program is sponsored by the Child and Adult Food Program (CACFP). Parents are allowed to pack additional snacks for their children but are only allowed to be eaten during lunch or snack time without exception. 
  5. (12:00pm - 2:00pm) Afternoon STEAM Lab + Fitness Fun – After lunch it will be time for another challenging STEAM Lab that will inspire your child’s imagination. As before, we will break the children into groups and switch them between an hour of STEAM lab and their fitness activity.
  6. (2:00pm - 2:30pm) Dismissal 1 – We will regroup with some well-deserved choice time while allotting time for afternoon pick-ups.
  7. (2:30pm - 3:00pm) Evening Snack – During this time we will provide a nutritious snack to keep young minds energized.
  8. (3:00pm - 5:00pm) Evening STEAM Lab + Fitness Fun – The final hours of STEAM challenges and fitness activities for the day.
  9. (5:00pm - 6:00pm) Choice Time – Students will wind down with their choice of activity (which may include a board game, movie or an arts & crafts project.) 
  10. (6:00pm - 6:30pm) Dismissal 2 – This marks the end of a STEAM-filled day! Be prepared to hear about all the new and exciting things your child has learned in our Summer Camp!
 

WHAT IS BIOMIMICRY??

Biomimicry is the examination of nature, its models, systems, processes, and elements
to emulate or take inspiration from
in order to solve human problems.

 

HOW WILL WE TEACH IT TO STUDENTS?

Through the exploration of superhero powers!

We will use superheroes to relate concepts of Biomimicry to our students. Many of their favorite heroes have special powers that have been adopted from unique animal traits. For example, Spiderman, Batman and Wolverine all use use their animalistic powers to solve problems and save the world. We can learn a great deal about Biomimicry through these exciting characters.
