Also, they have story time with our awesome librarian and singing with our amazing music specialist. 5th-6th graders attend for six weeks and get to practice problem-solving skills through exploration in our state-of-the-art SmartLab and also our epic Space Center. Please eat before you come and wear a Discovery Day t-shirt, which can be purchased at the front desk for $5.25. Join us in February for these amazing learning opportunities!  

Fun Friday Sign-ups 

SmartLab

When you learn to write code, you are learning a whole new language! Over the course of four sessions, the SmartLab provide an introductory computer programming experience using Code.org online resources. Each session will introduce the concept of computer code, creating your own computer game and provide a basic introduction to the Hour of Code software. The challenge will be to complete 20 programming challenges or “puzzles” that introduce basic programming concepts of commands, repeat loops, repeat until, if, and if/else statements. Do not worry if you cannot complete all 20 puzzles during the class. You can always go back to the Hour of Code website and finish later. Use the puzzle counter at the top of the page to pick up where you left off. Just make sure you have a Code.org sign in,  https://studio.code.org/users/sign_in. The SmartLab is also available for projects to be done at home, go to classroom.google.com and join our class for supplemental assignments.

Students will need to provide a parent supervised Gmail and password to the SmartLab teacher for grades 1-6. Any additional security features might need to be turned off when they come to school. Usually, if parents have logged into the Google Classroom from home, the students’ account will work at the Smart Lab.
