Elementary school STEM concepts
Explore and build models for aviation and scientific exploration suitable for ages 10-11; learn key Mathematical concepts such as shapes, dimensions, angles, and area; investigate 3D objects and explore concepts such as volume and surface area through hands-on projects, activities, real life problems and the use of technology, science and Engineering. Appropriate for grades 4-6.
Middle school STEM concepts
Explore and build models for aviation and scientific exploration suitable for ages 11-14; learn key Mathematical concepts such as proportions, prospective, area, volume and surface area congruence and similarity through hands-on projects and activities; solve real life problems using technology, science and Engineering. Appropriate for grades 6-9.
High school STEM concepts
Learn Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) concepts in more depth through hands-on projects and activities and debates. Students will learn presentation skills and use of mathematical software that will be useful when applying for universities. This is suitable for ages 14-17. This workshop is designed to develop appreciation of mathematics that students learn in grades 9-12.
