S.T.E.A.M. Lab Classes
Online Education Program
Join CuriOdyssey educators for a 60-minute exploration of a science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) concept. Share engineering strategies for the perfect hoopster, build an invertebrate hotel, and get playful with chemistry by making your own playdough.
Classes are structured with an introduction/demonstration with an educator, ample independent exploration/experimentation time and concluding discussion of lessons learned and opportunity for further discovery.
Contact CuriOdyssey if you would like to schedule an exclusive class for your “learning pod”. STEAM Lab classes are ideal for 2nd-6th graders or younger students working with an adult to unleash the superpower of science.
Fall 2020 Themes
Wednesday, Oct. 28 || 2:15– 3:15pm
Chemistry is all about mixing things together and seeing what happens! In this fun hands- and minds-on class, we will use materials you have in your kitchen to do just that! Get ready to get a little messy - all in the name of science!
Wednesday, Nov. 4 || 2:15 – 3:15pm
Reptiles have inhabited Earth for millions of years! This program takes a focused look at some amazing ectotherms. A combination of live reptile observation and the study of biofacts brings the musuem experience to your home. Observe the locomotion of a tortoise, patterns of a snake, or the blue tongue of a skink with an educator ready to answer all your questions and guide you in bulding a reptile science craft.
Seeds n’ Sprouts
Wednesday, Nov. 11 || 2:15– 3:15pm
Plants make food, battle predators, and reproduce – all while rooted in place! Explore familiar plants and seeds from the kitchen and see their survival ability in a whole new way. We'll set up seeds to germinate and learn about the parts of vegetables that can regenerate a plant. An educator will guide you through making a veggie scrap garden or mini greenhouse from recycled materials - a science project that you can grow and eat!
Fur, Feathers, Scales & Exoskeletons
Wednesday, Nov. 18 || 2:15– 3:15pm
Why are some animals covered in fur while others are covered in scales, exoskeleton, or feathers? Ever wonder what the hair in your eyebrows are for? In this class, we will meet live animals and see many different animal pelts and coverings to learn about all the unique ways those coverings help animals survive in their habitats.
Sssecret Lives of Snakes
Wednesday, Dec. 2 || 2:15– 3:15pm
Can snakes really dislocate their jaws to eat their food? What makes them a reptile? Why do snakes have scales? In this live class, learn the answer to these questions, set up an experiment at home, and get to know a live snake! There will be time for discussion, sharing and discovery of the secret lives of snakes.
Wednesday, Dec. 9 || 2:15– 3:15pm
Kids love crystals! In this STEAM Lab class, we will learn about how rock crystals form by checking out CuriOdyssey's rock collection. We all know the best way to learn about crystals is by gorwing your own, so we'll do just that! By setting up experiments during class, we'll make sure kids can continue learning as their crystals grow throughout the week!
Wednesday, Dec. 16 || 2:15– 3:15pm
Learn interesting paper shapes to create building blocks for all your engineering design ideas. We'll explore the science skills of generating ideas, prototyping designs, and troubleshooting as a team along the way. Will you make something that glides, stands tall, falls, or floats? Educators will be ready to encourage persistence and celebrate successes!
