Young Rembrandts – Our elementary-age curriculum is designed to teach basic to advanced drawing skills, art techniques and vocabulary.

You’ll see increased art abilities, learning skills, self-confidence and self-esteem. Our budding artists will have the opportunity to flex their creative muscle as they take on fun, artistic challenges like our Jack Russell Terrier and even More Emojis in the month of January. February brings fun and culture into the classroom as our students’ learn about masquerade and dive into the mind of master artist Romero Britto. And in the month of March, get ready for some dinosaur-sized excitement as your elementary student recreates the ferocious T-Rex Young Rembrandts style!

Circuit Contraptions: We’re rolling out the newest craze to hit the kids’ market – littleBits as seen on TED! Does your student love to explore and build with hands-on, creative activities? Let’s take that excitement and add in electronics and circuits! Students use littleBits and other cool circuits that move, light, and make noise to create amazing contraptions.We designed this class to be a stress-free and fun way for students to step into STEM classes. In this one- of-a-kind course, we introduce students to the principles of electronics and circuits.Then we challenge the campers to combine their imagination with this technical knowledge to build projects. Students assemble a wide variety of electrical components from our Lab, such as infrared light sensors, potentiometers, motors, servos, oscillators, fans, delays, synthesizers, speakers, microphones, and keyboards to build and power their creations.Who knew oscillators could be so much fun!There’s no soldering. And no breadboards. Instead students explore circuits through unique activities that combine learning the science of circuits with hands-on building.
Grades 1-3: offered on Wednesdays 2:50-3:50pm in Room #15 (there is supervision by the Sparkiverse Labs teacher for 1st and 2nd graders from 2:30-2:50pm)

Minecraft Adventures: Whether your student is new to Minecraft or has taken other Sparkiverse Minecraft classes – they will enjoy this Minecraft Challenges class full of fresh challenges for Winter 2017! Each week Sparkiverse takes students on team challenges using the educational version of Minecraft. This version allows us to manage the game play inside of each Minecraft world and even give rewards or freeze the players as we act as both an instructor and coach.What makes this class exceptional is that we’ve bundled all of the creative aspects that your student loves about Minecraft and wrapped it with collaborative learning and problem solving. Students love playing the game together and coming up with strategies as a team to solve challenges. Parents appreciate that students are putting their Minecraft skills to use alongside classmates in the real world and students love it just as much! Let’s bring teamwork and imagination to Minecraft and watch the creative juices and healthy competition flow!
