All God’s Creatures

Ages 6 to 8 ($55.00)

Friday, 11:00 am to 12:00 pm, First Class is October 3, EHS Room 103

Teachers Paul Donelson and Sarah Gillani

In this class we will be learning about all of God’s creatures from Aardvarks to Zebras, and everything in between! Through hands on activities, we look forward to discovering animals from both the most remote corners of the world and from our own backyards. We will then talk about the relationships between animal communities and how each species contributes to the wonderful diversity of life that our planet has to offer. Topics addressed will include an overview of animal families, the relationship between animals and their environments, and ways that humans can live responsibly as careful stewards of God’s creation.

 

Chemistry in Your House       THIS CLASS IS FULL

Ages 9 to 11 ($55.00)

Friday, 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm, First Class is October 3, EHS Room 103

Teachers Valentina Kucher and Tu Do

Students will explore the fascinating science behind seemingly ordinary processes that occur in the kitchen. This course provides students with basic laboratory skills, research techniques, and knowledge of chemical and laboratory safety within and outside the lab. Near the end, students will complete a short presentation on a food of their choice. From cabbage pH to making their own soap, and a few take-home goodies, students will thoroughly enjoy learning about the chemistry that constantly surrounds them.

An Introduction to Physics       THIS CLASS IS FULL

Ages 12 to 14 ($75.00)

Wednesday, 3:30 pm -5:00 pm, First Class is October 1, EHS Room 103

Teachers: Sierra Donahue and Joel Rurik

Students will investigate the natural and physical laws governing creation through hands-on experimentation and dynamic demonstrations. The course will introduce students to a variety of real world physics applications. Throughout the semester we will explore topics including kinetics, forces, rocketry, structural engineering, circuits, and electricity. Join us as we learn the many Whys and Hows that govern the inner workings of the universe.
