After School Programs

Roy Cloud Enrichment Programs for Fall 2018

The Roy Cloud PTO is proud to offer an exciting assortment of high quality Enrichment Programs for Fall 2018.

Enrichment Program Overview

All of the following classes are held on the Roy Cloud campus where students are able to stay in a safe and enriching environment, while also continuing to build community through sharing a common interest. We strive to provide vendors that offer classes which allow students to follow their interests, to enrich their curiosity, and to have fun.

For scheduling flexibility, students attending Workshop Enrichment or Neighborhood Kids’ Corner can also attend after school classes and return to Workshop Enrichment or Neighborhood Kids’ Corner when the class is over. In addition, some of our vendors offer supervision for K-3 students when classes begin on or after 2:50. Please see visit the vendors in the links, or contact the after school coordinators for more specific information.

While these classes are held on our campus and attended by our students, they are offered by, and run by, individual vendors. All payments and responsibility for attendance, questions, and other issues can be directed at the individual vendors by clicking the link to their websites.

Questions regarding the After School Program can be sent to the PTO After School Coordinators  Mary-Elizabeth Redner or Tiffany Gonzales.

During the 3 sessions, fall, winter and spring, lessons will be planed in a way that students will be progressing on their language skills through board games, demonstration, story time, class participation, art, hands-on and physical activities.

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!

Robots in the Real World 9/12/2018- 12/5/2018 (no class 11/21)

Sparkiverse Labs

2:30-3:30 PM

WELCOME TO THE SECRET WORLD OF ROBOTS, WHERE WE’LL UNCOVER WHAT TRULY MAKES THEM TICK – WITH CODE! In today’s world, we’re surrounded by robots – from autonomous vehicles to robo-security guards. Throughout this exciting semester, we’ll quench your students curiosity for how they really work by pairing our codeable robots with your students’ imaginations.

We start with the fundamentals – what is a robot and how do robots make decisions? Students conduct experiments with our codeable Ozobot robots to see how robots make decisions and learn how to change these decisions through coding. Then we take a look at how robots get used in the real world – whether on our roads or in our skies. We look inside the technological innovation, as well as the business aspect, of designing and building robots. The class explores the world of self-driving cars and how they actually work. How would students design a self-driving car?  Students will experiment by coding with our Thymio robots to test the ways cars might navigate a busy city. We will then look beyond our world into the skies by exploring the challenges faced by the Mars Rover. What tasks does it need to complete and what tools does it have to accomplish them? Students will program a virtual Mars rover to autonomously explore a virtual Mars.

We wrap up the class with an introduction to AI – Artificial Intelligence. How does AI work? What is “machine learning”? Students compete in a challenge to see if they are smarter than a robot in our 20 questions with AI.

This club is part of a network of thousands of TED-Ed Clubs in schools and educational organizations around the world, all working to spark and celebrate the ideas of students. During the Club cycle, each Club Member will engage in a series of Explorations designed to help them present an amazing Club talk on an idea that they are passionate about. Along the way, Club Members will become experts in:

  • Identifying the elements of a great idea
  • Researching, developing and presenting an idea
  • Creating visuals to tell a compelling story
  • Using best practices for camera, lighting and sound

By the end of the Club cycle, each Club Member will have a filmed TED-Ed Club talk, and may be featured on TED-Ed social media outlets, ed.ted.com, the TED-Ed Clubs YouTube channel, or possibly even the TED stage!  

 

There is no cost to join but we do ask that club members be fully committed to the 13 explorations in order to fully develop and present their unique idea.

Interested?  Please contact Stephanie Chen at goodnius@gmail.com and she will forward you a Student Permission Form.

All our after school program providers are independent companies who each maintain their own enrollment policies and processes. There is no central reservation system for after school programs.

Vendors, teachers and the After School Activities Coordinator make every effort to get every student to the programs’ location, however it is the parent’s responsibility to direct their child to the correct location, especially on the first day of class.
