iExplore Club

iExplore

Makerspace was a huge success last year and after much thought, revision and a new name, iExplore, we are excited to offer this club for students in grades K-3. After some revamping of content to align with our new STEM curriculum LAUNCH, we are ready to get started! 

Students will be grouped into K-1 and 2-3 grade level bands for activities this year. Each group will rotate sessions, which will allow for 6 meetings over 3 weeks. iExplore meetings will occur on Monday and Thursday each week from 3:15 to 3:55. Students that sign up will be expected to attend both days or they will not be allowed to participate. Pick up will be promptly at 3:55 in the front lobby. Due to the shorter meeting time this year, we will NOT be offering a snack time. Only one age group will be in session at a time.

The sign-up will be lottery based instead of filling a certain number of seats. The sign-up for each session will be open for 4-5 days via a Google Form. When the sign up closes we will select names randomly for each session. If a student has already had an opportunity to participate in one session, first priority will be given to those who have not yet participated. You will be notified if your child is chosen to participate. There is a $25 activity fee per child that attends for the year, not every session, that will be due prior to your child’s first session. We will do our best to accommodate as many students as possible. Please discuss the topics with your child to gauge interest prior to signing him/her up!
