Pin it For Fun - P.S. Karma (K-5)
This class is fun, fun, fun!!! This class was created for the students that are into the DIY culture. We will work with various levels and forms of arts and crafts inspired by Pinterest. This class offers a seasonal curriculum. The arts and crafts in this class will always align with the Holidays, seasons and big events going on around the time of the class. Students can create a holiday wreath for the fall, a heart canvas bag for Valentine’s Day, and even abstract rainbows to bring in the summer. This is actually one of our more popular classes. This class can be fun for every age group. This class allows the children to be completely creative in their own way and also be social.
Experimentamania - Mad Science (K-5)
Experimentamania is a cornucopia of experiments! Children will uncover the vital role that science plays in detective work, examine the science behind popular toys and get a buzz out the amazing world of insects! Your Mad Scientists will explore earth science, weather phenomena, and experiment with some kitchen chemistry. Children will build their own Mad Science Machine, and create their very own short animated cartoon!
