  • Board Game Builders

    Students will learn the basics of board game design as they create their very own board game! This creative and exciting program uses elements of STEAM to break down a big project into bite sized pieces for students to make a playable board game. Course includes a design journal, board game box, board, and all the bits & pieces needed to play! Over 6 quick weeks, board game builders will learn about crucial parts of board game design such as rules, board types, what all the pieces are and much more. While each week is crucial to the board game building process, if a child misses a week, we have strategies available to help catch them up to the group. Below is a breakdown of our board game building program. Week 1: Theme & Backstory Week 2: The Board in Board Games Week 3: Bits, Meeples & Pieces, Oh My! Week 4: Rules and Their Importance Week 5: Visual Strategies & Play-Testing Week 6: Finishing Touches & The Pitch! (Parents are invited to the final 20 minutes of class to see their student present their game!) While the program teaches young minds how to build a board game, the aim of this program is to inspire the next generation to take a step away from being consumers in order to be creators, makers and designers.

  • FIRST LEGO League: Explore

    In FIRST LEGO League (FLL): Explore, students focus on the fundamentals of LEGO engineering as they explore real-world problems, learn and design basic code, and create unique solutions made with LEGO bricks and powered by LEGO Education WeDo 2.0. Teams of up to 6 students, led by parent-volunteer coaches, will meet 1 day each week for up to 1 hour. During these team "practices", teams will work together to develop a solution and model related to the current season's theme. This year's theme is "Super Powered". Students will explore where energy comes from and how it is distributed, stored, and used to work to innovate for a better energy future. The season culminates with an "FLL: Explore Expo" where each team will present their unique solution, model and learning. All teams will practice on Tuesday evenings at 6:00pm at JCSD facilities. Practice locations will be determined after team rosters are created and volunteer coaches are assigned. Registration Deadline: Sunday, January 29, 2023 Tentative Coaches Meeting: Tuesday, February 7 at 6:00pm Teams will be contacted by parent-volunteer coaches AFTER the Coaches Meeting is held. (Approximately Feb 8-9) Practices begin Tuesday, February 14 at 6:00pm. Most teams practice approximately 45-50min. Date and time of the end-of-season expo event is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, April 18 at 6:00pm. This program is dependent on parent-volunteers to operate. Rosters are limited to 6 students. Each team MUST have a Head Coach AND an Assistant Coach to safely supervise each practice session. That means we need to identify a Head Coach and ideally 2 Assistant Coaches for every six students. A MINIMUM of 2 adults (Coach + Assistant Coach) are required to be on-site to supervise each practice. No LEGO or robotics experience is necessary. FLL provides materials to guide teams through each practice. All projects should be student-driven. Coaching an FLL: Explore team is more similar to guiding a group of students through a class-project than it is to coaching a sports team. Considering the small roster size (6 students), ALL parents should consider how they can volunteer to support the team. If we are unable to secure enough volunteer coaches to lead each team, students will be placed on teams in the order that they registered. Example: If we have 24 students register but only enough volunteer coaches for 3 teams, the the 6 students that registered latest will NOT be placed on a team and will receive a refund.
