Calling All Future Doctors!

Kids love to dress up and play doctor! At Little Medical School® we encourage children to do this as they explore the exciting and inspiring world of medicine. Using role-playing, interactive demonstrations, crafts, and games, kids learn how the body and organs work, how to use instruments that real doctors use, administer first aid, and more! Each child will receive a medical stethoscope to take home in addition to a disposable white lab coat, multiple models made by the students, and a diploma as a graduate of Little Medical School.

Coding with Kids - Thursdays

Robotics for Little Coders (K-2) with Ozobot is an opportunity for young children to develop their computational thinking skills, build their first programs, and have fun with new friends! Ozobot's programming is designed specifically for early readers, taking into account the cognitive abilities and typical attention span of children ages 5-7. Students are introduced to basic coding concepts with simple tasks, such as customizing their Ozobot and assigning commands through different colors, then build up to more complex tasks with Ozobot's simple drag-and-drop language.

Animation Maker (Beginner-Intermediate 2-5) Enter the world of movie and game animations! Students will learn the core skills of creating simple animated movies, creating 2D and 3D characters and animating those. Take your learning beyond stop-motion animation with real animation design tools. You will get to create real computer graphics and build animations like the pros!
