Class Experience

This is a rich life-skills class and will teach many skills such as...empathy, creative problem-solving skills, communication skills, and collaboration skills. Learners will also understand the importance of the design thinking process and how to use their hand-eye coordination as they assemble their inventions. Finally, we will reflect on the process and proactive the valuable skills of reflection.
Materials for this class are: Week one- no materials needed Week two- paper and drawing tools such as regular pencils, colored pencils, crayons, markers (whichever your learner prefers) Week three- this will depend on the invention your learner is creating (which you will know about after week two). I suggest cardboard, duct tape or masking tape, scissors, ruler, and other craft supplies you might have on hand such as: straws, craft sticks, paper clips, cups, pom poms, rubber bands, plastic bags, coffee filters, etc. Materials from your recycle bin are a goos source as well. Week four- materials used in week three are needed to finish the project
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
