We are pleased to have our enthusiastic partner Magic Makers in Paris return for our summer program! Lower School students at ASP enjoyed this after-school activity this past semester, and we could not pass up this opportunity to offer this grade programming activity again. Using non-computerized games, software for kids developed by MIT, and our well-equipped computer labs, your child will learn the basics of programming and develop the important tool of logic and intuition, all the while having a fun time!

STEM Gems (8-10 year olds)

Hours: 9:15 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. or 1:15 p.m. – 4:15 p.m.
Fees: €275 per week

Our STEM GEMS camp will be housed in one of our multiple Science and Discovery Labs at ASP, as students will explore the various links in technology, the sciences, mathematics, and engineering. From building simple machines to programming robots to measuring the distance of catapulting slime, this workshop is sure to make your child laugh and wonder at the world in which they voyage through each day.

Full STEAM Ahead ! (11-14 year olds)

What happens when you bring some Art into a STEM project? A clash of marvel and joy and fascination!   This summer we are offering 2 really cool sessions: ROCKETS & ROBOTS and TRAPS & TREASURES, and each will be a problem-based journey into our study of engineering, mechanics, design, electronics, and artistic rendering of the entire experience.

TRAPS & TREASURES (June 25-29)
Students will create security locks and traps for people in search of treasures, as they will learn to successfully decipher codes, secure rooms or objects, create treasures, write a comic book Storyboard, and produce a video trailer of this mystery activity.

ROCKETS & ROBOTS (July 2-6)Students will participate in a space launch simulation with a rocket launch with a rover transporter; they will incorporate artistic designs and drawings of alien animal/plant creatures, and create a comic book Storyboard of launch, which will include producing a Pop-Art design poster (or video trailer) for the event.

Our instructor this summer is Gaby Bolivar who has taught Science, Discovery, and Technology to students of all ages here in the Paris region including the Cité des Sciences (Parc de la Villette); his students have rebuilt Leonardo Da Vinci’s masterpieces, launched student-built rockets, and created various Escape Games which demand students to create enigmas and security codes in order to trap participants in a fun and challenging adventure!
