For summer 2020, All Aboard for Kids is excited to announce the return of S.T.E.A.M. Academy!
This program will again be held at the The Plex and is designed with our Middle School participants in mind, typically grades 6-8. However, we do offer some flexibility in our age-range, as skill-sets of students may vary. Participants will engage, experience, and explore a fun curriculum centered around S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics) activities.
Our project-based curriculum leverages modern technology, while encouraging creativity, teamwork and communication among our participants. Activities are offered in an inclusive learning environment, led by an experienced and motivated staff.
Our program offers:
- Small class size
- Individualized academic instruction and functional curriculum
- Group and individual Positive Behavior Support
- Integrated social skills opportunities with every activity
- Friday field trips!
Camp is held Monday-Friday, from 8:30am-12:30pm
Nothing is Impossible: Creativity Week
If you can imagine it, you can create it! Design and construct marble towers, kites, and more. We will continue investigating by taking a trip to the Science Center of Iowa in Des Moines.
Engineering Your Dreams: Technology Week
Explore technology through robotics. We’ll also be learning more about technology by accessing various apps such as Scratch, Dubsmash/Lip Synch, and Mekorama. We’ll take a break and spend some time outside on a field trip to McFarland Park this week!
Created to Create: Art Week
Discover your inner artist as we color, paint, draw, and possibly learn to knit (oh my!). We will welcome a local artist who will guide us as we create some fun projects. A trip to the Des Moines Zoo will add to the fun!
Imagination at Work: Creativity Week II
Join us as we dive into the world of movie making. You can create your own movie using Stop Motion, write a script and enlist others to star in your movie, or work behind the scene of someone else’s movie. The possibilities are endless!
