Program Description & Details

Visit the Lumberman’s Arch beach at low tide and explore the incredibly diverse and abundant life in the intertidal zone. Low tide offers us a glimpse at fascinating animals and plants that have adapted to life in and out of the sea. Hunt for crabs, sort seaweeds, and find out what else lives or eats on the seashore, while students discover important human connections to the oceans. Beach Explorers is a tide-dependent program and is available in spring between April and June. Please contact us for available dates.

Program Description & Details

Discover the many wonders of the only mammal that can fly. Find out how bats live, hunt, echolocate and adapt to their habitat using their unique bodies. Because bats are nocturnal, we will not see any live bats during the program. Instead, we will explore their habitat with unique props and activities. Bats really are beautiful; learn why in this interactive forest adventure.

Program Description & Details

STUDENTS WILL UNDERSTAND THE FUNDAMENTALS OF CODING AND HOW ROBOTS WORK BY PROGRAMMING A VIRTUAL BEE ROBOT AND THEN GETTING IT TO COMPLETE A SERIES OF CHALLENGES. FOLLOWING THE WORKSHOP, STUDENTS WILL 'BEE' CONFIDENT TO COMPLETE FURTHER CODING CHALLENGES INDEPENDENTLY.

Intended for and geared towards overall early learners and newcomers to computer programming, students will be introduced to coding and robotics. In small groups, students will learn how to program a robot bee to execute a series of commands.

Students are introduced to computational thinking through offline coding. Students will discuss coding as a language and learn how to write and to follow a code using symbols. With these coding skills, students will be presented with a series of challenges and program a virtual bee robot to solve them. By the end of the workshop, students will understand how robots read code to perform a task. They will also be able to independently explore with the virtual robot platform after the workshop ends.
