Abstract art is art that does not attempt to represent external reality, but seeks to achieve its effect using shapes, forms, colors, and textures. Students will explore unconventional mediums in order to create abstract art.
The basics of automation! Students will learn how computers can be used to control the basic aspects of daily life, such as alarms and light. Students will also learn how Bluetooth technology can be integrated into remote control functions on your smartphone
Students will explore and learn the differences between expressions and equations, as well as their similarities and differences. Math expressions and equations are able to be used in real-world problems to help solve them.
Students describe and analyze shapes by examining their sides and angles. Students investigate, describe, and reason about decomposing and combining shapes to make other shapes. Through building, drawing, and analyzing two- and three-dimensional shapes, students develop a foundation for understanding area, volume, congruence, similarity, and symmetry in later grades.
Students will learn about programming principals and the structures of coding. They will learn all about variables, methods (functions) and conditional statements while
implementing them on robots assembled by them.
Investigative Science: Art of Science & History of Explosions
In this cog, students will learn the objectives of science blended with the subjectiveness of art. Science is the acquiring of knowledge, while art is the presentation of said knowledge. Students will be able to present the topics they have developed in a way that is not only information passing but also appealing!

tips and tricks in creating not only an appetizing dish but one that also looks good!
This cog will focus on (1) developing fluency with addition and subtraction of fractions, and developing an understanding of the multiplication of fractions and a division of fractions in limited cases (unit fractions divided by whole numbers and whole numbers divided by unit fractions);
(2) extending division to 2-digit divisors, integrating decimal fractions into the place value system and developing an understanding of operations with decimals to hundredths, and developing fluency with whole number and decimal operations; and (3) developing an understanding of volume.
Students study the vast possibilities of a career in film. From set designers to producers and even actors and actresses. Students study all these components through research and creating their own film.
Video Game Design is not all about coding. This cog teaches students all about what makes a game appealing in the first place: great graphics and level design! From background drawing all the way to animations using Adobe Creative Cloud's product such as Animate CC, Photoshop or Illustrator among others, this is a perfect program for the little creatives out there.
A microcomputer is a small, relatively inexpensive computer with a microprocessor as its central processing unit such as Raspberry Pi, for example. Students will learn how to program such microcomputers that boast endless possibilities.
Come and learn about the pop and pomp of pop art! Pop art is an interesting type of art that rejected the old ideas about art and embraced the style of artwork featured in advertising around the 1950s.
