Offered to Grades: 3-6

In this highly creative STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) program, innovation and creation take center stage while participants learn the fundamental concepts of programming. Participants will learn or build upon foundational skills of Scratch programming and coding, and discover how to create character animations, music, and art.  The girls will also have the opportunity to build and program robots and work with 3D printers and 3D design software. 

Each day includes hands-on art classes designed to encourage creative thinking and problem-solving in a fun and nurturing environment. Girls will work with a variety of different media, and projects will range from individual works of art to large constructions created in groups.

Lunch and snacks included in the cost of tuition.

Offered to Grades: 3-6

This course takes advantage of the technology and tools available in Westridge’s STEAMWork Design Studio, and introduces creative projects utilizing 3D printing and scanning, vinyl cutting, and CNC technology. These hands-on projects may include: 3D-printed characters, custom vinyl stickers, making a jewelry box, pop-up papercraft cards, 3D-printed stamps, matchstick rockets, and more. Students learn to translate simple sketches into physical creations using digital software, combining technology, design, and art with both practical and creative applications. The course encourages girls to tinker with computer programs including Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and 123D Design in combination with hands-on processes like woodworking and moldmaking.
