Do you love playing games and have an interest in science? Join our course and code your own ecosystem game in Scratch! In this 4-week program, students will explore animal relationships, food chains, and elements of an ecosystem while learning coding fundamentals. Coding concepts include conditional statements, iteration (repetition with loops), and variables.

While we recommend this course for children ages 9 and up, we are flexible with our age ranges. Please contact us at info@stemlearninglab.com if you have any questions.

This session runs at the same time as “Animals and Seasonal Change: Coding with Scratch Jr” for ages 5-8.

Fractions Rock: Music & Math with Microbits

Get ready to rock with fractions and music in this fun and interactive session. Using block coding, you will gain confidence in coding music with Microbits. Create an auditory experience where you compare the length of notes and how different note patterns can change how we feel about a song—all through the power of fractions! Come join us today and find your song with STEM.

(We recommend that you bring your own headphones for your own listening pleasure)
