Jibberish day? Snowball? Believe it or not these teach Self confidence, public speaking skills, listening skills, observational skills, communication and teamwork. The skills learned in improv benefits your child for the rest of their life - BUT best of all, they'll have a great time learning them! Not only for kids who want to be actors; this training is proven to: develop critical listening skills and enhance verbal communication skills, produce greater empathy for others and teach children negotiation and teamwork while working in a high energy environment playing games as an ensemble. Its on the wall of Second City..Tina Fey preaches it: Improv shows there are no mistakes, just opportunities! With enough signup, we’ll split the class into “little actors” (gr K-2) and “The Actors Studio” (gr 3-5). This class is a HUGE success this Fall, and is taught by the owner herself, a Second City alum.
APP DEVELOPMENT & DESIGN (GRADES 4-5, $ 269)
In this class, we will learn to build apps using fundamental coding concepts using a fun visual software. This innovative course teaches computer programming skills through interactive and exciting projects. We use visual interface software with block-based coding, that helps your child develop critical skills of programming, logical thinking, creativity, and problem solving. You can even put your apps in the Play Store and share with friends and family. It’s a great way to get kids psyched about learning cool STEM skills.
Connect your phone/tablet to your browser and as you’re developing actually see your app running live on your phone.
Learn how to create characters, animations, sounds and special effects using an intuitive, web based development platform.
Experiment and troubleshoot their programming project, developing important problem solving, logic and computational skills.
CHESS WIZARDRY (GRADES K-5, $ 269)
Did you know Chess can raise your IQ? Uses both sides of the brain? Improves memory, problem solving skills and concentration? Well it does – all the while building strategic thinking and improving memory. Fall was a hit and we’re bringing chess back to Red Oak for Winter so our kids’ “dendrites” can grow. We didn’t know what that was either, but those are brain impulses and chess helps those! Chess has had a huge resurgence in popularity especially on the north shore and Red Oak is able to bring it back using Chess Wizards! A “Miss A.” favorite!
Mobile App Camp (GRADES 2-5, $ 199)
TWO great programs in one - This Fall learn a NEW language and Learn how to make a Mobile app. Start the session by learning how to be a developer and create apps for an iPhone or Android. Students learn the essentials of designing and programming mobile apps. Working with a partner, they use AppShed and explore key coding concepts, easing into the first steps of Java programming while having fun creating fully functioning apps! In the second half of the session, they will be introduced to a new language called Python which is a powerful, expressive programming language that's easy to learn and fun to use! Work on programming puzzles designed to stretch your brain and strengthen your understanding of this new language! You’ll learn basic data structures like lists and maps. ** Wireless internet access is required to run this program
ROBOTS, AIRPLANES AND MECHANICS (GRADES K-2, $ 249)
While attending this STEM Club, students will be able to sample different fields of engineering and learn how to apply the Engineering Design Process to solve problems and build exciting machines! Our programs prepare students for rigorous study and self-driven exploration by introducing them to concepts in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics through interactive experimentation. We have designed our curriculum around the field of engineers and scientists, allowing students to tackle challenges using an understanding of principle concepts but leaving ample room for their individual creativity.
