Calendar Current session started Aug 21, 2020 at 9 am, runs for 15 weeks

Using the Magic Tree House series, children in grades K-2 will explore science as seen through the eyes of Jack and Annie as they travel through the books that they find.  In this 15 week course they will learn the answers to questions like: What causes seasons? Why are snowflakes white? How is the soil different where it never gets warm? What causes floods, and how can they both help and harm the land? How do inventors use engineering to solve problems, and what makes a structure strong enough to create the Eiffel Tower? Use math to solve puzzles and uncover clues, and travel through books and time with Jack and Annie!

Telescope Building Mentorship with Project Nightsky

$1,69750

with Haley Rice

Calendar Current session started Sep 7, 2020 , runs for 9 weeks

This mentorship for high school and adults is a telescope-building course adapted to mobile astronomy education needs. Our goal in partnering with Project Night Sky is to provide one-on-one mentorship to students, allowing them to build their very first telescope, and by extent, learning to understand the mathematical, historical, and cultural side to optics. We will meet in-person to build telescopes, sextants, and study celestial navigation and distance-calculations. The level of math we use is dependent on the ability of each student.

This mentorship lasts for 9 weeks and includes an individual meeting 2 hours a week on Monday or Wednesday afternoons. Arrangements can be made to meet through zoom or off-site (for an additional fee). Contact us at haleyr@hsvsteamworks or 256-489-0610 for more information or to check on available class times.

The cost is $795 per student for groups of 6 or more.

Astronomy- 1st 9 weeks

$275

with Haley Rice

Calendar Next available session starts Sep 21, 2020 at 1 pm, runs for 9 weeks

Astronomy is often the driving inspiration to hone math as a skill. Using it as a means to understand the night sky, applied math can turn even those who struggle into a star student. 

The following textbook has been used in real college courses. It contains comprehensive information on space, from the study of distances to exoplanets, to stars and galaxies. It is unnecessary for students to purchase the entire textbook—scanned copies of excerpts and problem sets are easily shareable through Skype or other virtual communication services. 

Classes would occur one time a week for two hours per session. Regular homework activities will include reading small parts of the textbook, marking stars on monthly star charts, and becoming well-versed with the night sky and deep sky objects. Math problem sets are dependent on the grade level of the course.
