Think It, Plan It, MAKE IT! at Beatties Ford Library

Think it plan it make it class at Beatties Ford Library beginning May 30, 2017, grades 3-5, great opportunity for homeschool students in the greater Charlotte area.


Free  Six Week Think It, Plan It, MAKE IT, Workshop Grades 3-5


Join the MAKE movement as you create, build, innovate, design, improve, hack, push boundaries and solve problems. Embark on a series of projects that highlight STEM concepts, allow for self-expression, foster teamwork and improve critical thinking.


Come and learn about the engineering design process and how math, science, and technology can be used to solve problems.  Students will be introduced to a variety of materials and tools that they will then be able to use in the creation of different Make activities such as robots, rockets, and bridges.  They will be given broad directions for the Make activities which allow for an open ended method of experiential learning and will use the steps of the engineering design process to make an effective model.  There will be a different make project each week.


This is a fantastic opportunity for your homeschool student to take quality STEM classes for FREE!


NOTE:  Students may attend as many of these six sessions as desired.  Students will experience a different make project each week.   Registration for each date opens two weeks prior to the session.  Students must register for each class date separately.  Links to register are in the table below.  Mark your calendars because THESE CLASSES WILL FILL FAST!
