Hands-On Robotics (7+)

What happens when robotics meets Rube Goldberg? You will find out in this class! In our first trimester, we will start by designing the kinds of chain reactions we see in Rube Goldberg machines, then create robots as a tool to connect the different sections of the contraption. Students will have lots of freedom to work creatively as they select their machine mechanisms, and in the process pursue a deeper understanding of how to construct a robot. Instructor: Suzana Somers, Acera Cross Classroom Teacher and MakerSpace specialist

Games and Outdoor Adventurers

Are you eager to explore our nature-based adventure playground, and engage both your body and your mind as you create theaters and forts, tie new platforms into the trees or make a new swing using ropes and branches? Do you like to take all the blocks and board game pieces and other supplies you can find in your house and turn them into an airport, a city, or a land no one has ever seen before?  This program is all about free, creative play, outdoors and indoors. Based on the group and their interests, student will play games, build and create, supported and guided in their quests and explorations. (This program also serves as a drop-in option.) Instructor: Vanesssa Roman, Acera Teacher in Friendship Skills, Kinetic Matematics and Theatre Arts
