Accelerated Summer Learning Program
The Middle School EEE summer learning program is a project based environment that supports hands-on, accelerated learning during the summer months. Our program is designed to promote positive youth development, community service, life and career development, and high school transition outcomes.
What do we REALLY need to know before we become adults? This fast-paced, game-style course will give students an opportunity to learn what is NOT taught in the traditional school curriculum. This class will focus on learning real-life skills (#adulting101) that will help students grasp content that really matters outside of school. Sample topics addressed are financial literacy, cooking, car maintenance, taxes, social
etiquette, and so much more!
This is your chance to learn and practice programming and become the master of new tricks! Options could include making designs with Root robots, messaging with MicroBits, and building Sumo robots with Lego Ev3. We will use block code which is a simplified version of computer code that is easy to learn. No knowledge of programming is required. Flexibility will allow students to explore their passions and create fun projects.
This summer we will once again be building Rube Goldberg Projects during EEE summer school. Students will be divided in groups of three or four and asked to build contraptions that accomplish a task. We will incorporate Newton’s Laws of Physics as well as transfers and transformations of energy to accomplish our tasks. Students will construct their project on a wooden platform using a various assortment of supplies andmaterials like wood, plastic, metal, string, cardboard, rolling cars, marbles, ping pong balls, pulleys, levers, springs, rubber bands, bells…etc. Last summer some of the machines were quite amazing. We look forward to another innovational experience in the world of Rube Goldberg Machines.
