Intro to Electronics

$350

with Chris Walls

Calendar Next session starts Oct 23, 2019 at 6 pm, runs for 5 weeks

Electronics are fundamental to modern life. Using live lectures, videos, and hands-on labs, you will see how electronic devices, circuits, and systems work. After studying this course, you should be able to: work with electricity safely, measure and monitor electricity, manipulate voltages, currents and resistances in electronic circuits, identify and demonstrate familiarity with basic electronic components used in simple electronic circuits, understand direct and alternating currents, understand the physics of semiconductors, and predict simple electronic circuit performance.

Intro to Vector Graphics

$195

with Jessica Nunno

Calendar Next session starts Oct 8, 2019 at 6 pm, runs for 7 weeks

In this 7-week course, high school students and adults will learn how to use the open-source software Inkscape. With a focus primarily on vector graphics, they will explore how vectors and raster images differ and will create marketing materials as a project for the class. For said project, they will design a business card, poster, and T-shirt.

Introductory Biology

$625

with Kayleigh Cantrell

Calendar Next session starts Aug 14, 2019 at 10 am, runs for 17 weeks

This course will be a semester-long comprehensive introduction to high school biology. This class provides an overview of basic principles of biological science following the “Biology” textbook available through CK-12. Students will also participate in dissections and other laboratory experiments. Emphasis will be placed on the fundamentals of scientific reasoning, including scientific models, principles of experimental design, and data interpretation. This course will cover the following topics: macromolecules, organelles, and cells; interactions of components in ecosystems; genetics and heredity; taxonomy; natural and artificial selection; and evolutionary biology.

Please note this class will meet twice a week and will include 68 hours of class time with an instructor. This is a full year of Biology with a lab.

The tuition includes a $100 lab materials fee which allows each student to receive their own specimens for dissections.

Middle School Life Science I

$267

with Kayleigh Cantrell

Calendar Next session starts Aug 14, 2019 at 9 am, runs for 17 weeks

This is the first semester of a full year course.

This two-part course will meet for one hour a week for two semesters and is designed to serve as a supplement to a middle school general science or life science course for students in grades 6th - 8th. Although this course will involve some instruction, it will primarily serve as a laboratory experience to supplement at-home studies of course material. Emphasis will be given to note taking, introductory scientific writing, principles of experimentation, and data analysis/interpretation. The two-part course schedule is designed to follow the “Life Science For Middle School” textbook available from CK-12, although it will be appropriate for any course covering the topics found in this text. Course topics will include the following: cells, organelles, and organ systems; biotic and abiotic components of ecosystems; heredity; and natural selection.

This tuition for Middle School Life Science I includes a $50 lab materials fee.

Monthly Maker 1-Year Subscription

$144

with David Mercer

Calendar Next session starts Jan 1, 2019

Our Monthly Maker program brings you a guided maker learning activity every month! For each project, we will provide all the tools and materials you need to complete your own build in our makerpsace, plus instructor assistance as needed.

Projects vary from month-to-month, and are typically appropriate for teens and adults. Some projects are also appropriate for older children (ages 9-12), while others children will be required to observe an adult stand-in (for example, using the metalworking shop.)

This program is included in every full individual Huntsville STEAM Works makerspace membership (limit 1 per household for family membership). Typical drop-in rate for non-members to do a Monthly Maker project is $20 per month. This full year subscription for non-members brings you nearly $100 of savings over the course of a year!
