Planetary Engineering (Morning Only)
On a school globe, the thickness of the Earth's atmosphere is only about 5mm! We need to find smarter and more eco-friendly methods for extracting and using Earth’s limited supply of raw materials. The primary goal of the modern environmental engineer is to minimize the impact of man-made processes on the natural environment while producing quality products effectively and in the most efficient manner possible. They utilize aspects of chemistry, biology, ecology, and engineering to design systems and solutions that help to keep our environment intact. And this know-how will help us as we learn to use the resources of asteroids and other planets. The future of environmental engineering is becoming Planetary Engineers!

Virtual Escape Room (MinecraftEDU featuring redstone)
Your child will use their cunning and their team members to defeat a series of escape rooms while learning redstone. MinecraftEDU is an expansive game that lets players design and create unique worlds with amazing structures. One of the more complicated aspects of MinecraftEDU is Redstone, which is MinecraftEDU’s version of electrical circuitry. This class will introduce your child to the many uses of Redstone through a Medieval themed adventure of creation, exploration, and castle besieging, with your child making mine cart tracks to help them gather resources, working together to build their kingdom, and designing traps to defend their castle, all with the use of Redstone. We run our custom worlds on our own server so there is no connection to the internet.
