Science S.T.E.A.M. Camp for 1st – 3rd grade youth
Does your child love to ask the question “why…”, constantly tinker and explore, or make observations about the things they see and want to know more? If so, then this new science, technology, engineering, art, and math (S.T.E.A.M.) Saturday camp is being designed just for them. Taking the foundations which make our summer camp program so impactful, such as campers directing their own learning, professional educators to facilitate questioning and discovery, and engaging content, and applying it to a Saturday program for those youth wanting something fun, educational and engaging to do on the weekends.

Coming in 2017
An open-ended, facilitated experience where participants can get support and guidance from CuriOdyssey educators on engineering processes and build projects that CuriOdyssey has planned or from their own imagination.
3-4 year olds
Preschoolers are natural scientists, utilizing their natural skills of inquiry, observation and discovery to explore and understand the world. Each session features a different scientific theme and includes activities that spark excitement and ignite curiosity. Our professional educators provide distinctive investigations of science and the outdoors. We keep our program group size small to provide an up-close and personal experience. Your child is sure to get excited as we play with slime, encounter animals and explore our surroundings using all five senses!
3-4 year old participants must be potty-trained and able to use the bathroom independently. Drop off will be at CuriOdyssey between 8:30 and 9:00am. Pick-up will be at noon. Sessions run one day a week (Fridays) for 5 weeks.
Does your child enjoy exploring, creating and discovering? CuriOdyssey’s Weekend Workshops are the perfect place for them! Weekend Workshops take a deeper look at some of the phenomena that occur all around us everyday. Water, wind and wildlife are just a few of the areas explored within the world of science during weekend workshops. CuriOdyssey educators support curiosity by helping children discover the answers to their own questions. Register now for this up-close and personal science experience designed to provide kids with the tools to deeply understand the changing world.
Workshops take place on Saturdays October through May.
Parents: All workshops take place at CuriOdyssey. Parents are welcome to support their children as a partner in workshops or can drop off and pick them up at the end of the workshop. Workshop content is designed for the recommended ages. A parent/guardian may be required to be with participants younger than the recommended age. All workshops require pre-registration.
Afterschool Makers Club
For 5th to 7th grade students
This is a unique science and engineering program for 5th-7th grade students. Join in the “Maker” movement that emphasizes learning by doing and encourages creativity, invention and modeling. Over this series of courses, students will be designing, building and tinkering with the goal of making a creation that they will exhibit at CuriOdyssey’s booth at Maker Faire 2017! Learning safe use of tools, drawing schematics and prototyping will precede the final product. CuriOdyssey educators will provide guidance and support to our young “Do-It-Yourselfers”, and students will experience engineering practices that develop important critical thinking skills.
Participants will experience Maker Faire 2017 as a participant and representative of CuriOdyssey Makers Club. Maker Faire 2017 will be held at the San Mateo County Fairgrounds in May 19-21, 2017. If your child likes to be creative, enjoys a challenge, and/or is inspired by making things, then don’t miss this opportunity to be a part of the “Maker” community.
More information will be available and registration will begin on Thursday, August 25th.
Winter Break Science Workshops
For Kindergarten-1st grade students
Winter Break Science Workshops are a perfect opportunity for youth to take a deeper look at some of the phenomena that occur all around us everyday. These half day workshops are great for kids who want to get more than a taste of science but may not want to devote a whole day of their winter break to exploring.
