2023 Spring – Science Workshops by Science for the Bay

Our class will use hands-on experiments, discussions, and games to make sure that students learn in a fun and interesting way. Some of the experiments we plan to perform and explore this fall are:

  • Invisible Ink
  • The DaVinci Bridge
  • Strawberry DNA
  • Instant ice

Science for the Bay is a non-profit organization that focuses on bringing interactive science-based education to the next generation and to under-developed areas around the world. Children do not effectively learn through memorization and lectures and that’s why we present a new method that makes learning both fun and beneficial at the same time.

The Fall session was very successful and students had a lot of fun learning.

WeDo Lego class by VCHS

In this class, students will be introduced to robotics through the basics of programming and engineering design. We will cover topics such as block code, sensors, and mechanical design. Students will build and program their own personal robots through guided instruction. Instructors will also help the students to participate in their own personal exploration by adding arms or programming functionalities.

Not only will students gain knowledge in robotics, but hands-on learning will help them improve
their fine motor skills and inquiry-based thinking skills.

The teachers are students from Valley Christian High School. Some of them have volunteered
at FCSN previously. Their mission is to help children with special needs access equitable learning
opportunities, especially in STEM education.

Please note because this is an in-person class, all participants must follow FCSN covid-19
