Animation Techniques: Stop Motion, Replacement, and more!
Introductory Robotic Design
EV3 LEGO Robotics & Robot Mechanisms
Block-Based Coding with Scratch
Game Design & Interactive Map-Making with Makey Makey
Raspberry Pi Setup
Python Text-Based Coding with Minecraft
Iterative Design & Creative Problem Solving
All programs are customizable, and updated yearly with new and exciting content!
WHAT A STEM LAB LOOKS LIKE
An experienced instructor from WMSI will come to your school and lead the STEM Lab sessions in person, bringing one of our Mobile STEM Lab Vans and a vast variety of exciting STEM tools along for each session!
A teacher from your school provides boots-on-the ground support and assists the WMSI Mobile Instructor during the program. while also having the opportunity to work with exciting new educational tools in the STEM world!
Students in Grades 3-6 interested in exploring some of the most exciting tools in science, technology, engineering, and math can enroll in the after-school program! We can generally accommodate up to 20 STEM Explorers per session, in order to ensure plenty of instructor support!
WMSI provides leadership and facilitation training for middle and high school students in the context of the after school program, who then join STEM Lab sessions to assist the Mobile Instructor with the after-school programs, and experiment with STEM tools themselves!
