Get out and Experiment!
The West Fargo Park District is excited to partner with NDSU 4-H Extension to hold this exciting new class. Local speakers and highly trained instructors will teach participants about flight dynamics, how to fly a drone and how they are used for work and pleasure. Participants will be able to demo various drones and complete simulated activities. This is a “rain or shine” class; activities will be moved inside the activity center if raining. Participants will bring home a model drone at the end of class.
Each child will build their own LEGO project and then play with others with their new creations. LEGO projects will not be taken home as they will be used by youth throughout the summer.
Imagine a place where students get to problem-solve, collaborate, communicate and build STEM skills through teamwork. Imagine a classroom where learning is truly personalized and students are motivated to achieve more than they ever thought possible. Students will participate in a hands-on learning experience using tools such as Lego Robotics, K’nex Simple Machine, Pixie Digital Storytelling and a 3D printer in this fun and challenging class! If you have taken SMART Lab before, you can continue right where you left off in a previous class. The North Dakota Center for Distance Education (NDCDE) is excited to partner with the West Fargo Park District to offer this fun learning course!
Do your kids love to mix concoctions and watch them react, but you don’t like the mess in your house? Join us for this interactive class that gives participants an opportunity to experiment with science and learn what makes these entertaining reactions happen.
Video Game Design Classes
This beginner class gives kids a strong overview of powerful game making software as they create their first Role-Playing Game (RPG)! Participants will lay out their maps, build their heroes, give them unique skills, create monsters for them to fight and program quests! There may even be some dungeons and dragons! At the end of class, students will put their game on a CD to bring it home to show family and friends what they created. Additional classes include Destructo-Ball and Penguin Panic!
