Class Experience

Mars: The New Frontier
Campers learn about Mars and tackle some of the challenges confronting scientists in their effort to travel and live on the red planet. Understand how the Perseverance rover—now officially at Octavia E. Butler Landing inside Jezero crater—successfully completed its first test drive on March 4. Students will compare and contrast Earth and Mars and apply the engineering design process to various projects. They’ll learn what are the human needs for space travel and how to establish a permanent settlement on Mars. At the end of the week, the budding scientists and engineers create a 3D model of their new Mars colony.

Notes

Reviews for SciTech Kids

Loved:

My son was fully engaged for the whole time. It was such a wonderful experience for him. I would highly recommend this and look forward to him doing these classes in person in the future.

Improvements:

If I had to pick something, there were some projects that required some adult help (cutting up some things) that could have done prior to the class. But this is so minor and not really an issue.

About SciTech Kids

SciTech Kids is a STEAM lab that nurtures a love of Science, Technology, Engineering Art, and Math through hands-on experiences that capture children's imagination. We turn the idea of teaching STEAM on its head. Kids learn STEAM and scientific concepts by “doing STEM” that is connected to their everyday life.

SciTech Kids’ curriculum brings STEAM to life through a student-centered approach that uses the power of inquiry and creativity to create captivating science activities.
Our curriculum covers various branches of science including biology, chemistry, physics, paleontology, forensics, electronics, ecology, botany, and astronomy. The kids’ questions and ideas are at the center of the learning experience. Led by our highly trained instructors, classes focus not only on the STEM content and process but also on real-world applications that empower students to become problem solvers.
