Building & Learning Around Science & Technology 

3rd/4th grade

B.L.A.S.T. was adapted from Project ARIES, developed by the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.  Students learn how astronauts live and work in space, as well as conduct experiments as scientists.  By using a hands-on, inquiry based approach, students scaffold new learning upon prior knowledge, pose questions, and build structures to observe, test, and explore scientific concepts. During the 3.5 hour program DSCN6241students will explore:

  • Speed & Motion
  • Electricity & Circuitry
  • Robotics
