How does an "Ongoing" course work?
Meets on a weekly schedule, join any week, no need to catch up on previous material

Each week, we will begin our meeting with a "window check" where each student checks the weather outside and reports back to the class. This will help encourage confidence when speaking in front of peers, as well as reinforce the concept of taking turns and listening.

This class is taught in English.
Students will learn the scientific concepts behind our weather and apply early STEAM skills such as critical thinking, making predictions, and discussing outcomes.
Supplies will vary per week, but include the following: construction paper, washable paint, ziplock bags, building blocks, shaving cream, food coloring, hair dryer, straw, paper towels, etc.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
25 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Parental assistance will be needed for various activities that include scissors and/or experiment set-up with household supplies.
