Think it. Design it. Make it! Inspired by the tale of the Three Billy Goats Gruff, students will dive into the world of engineering to solve different tasks facing the story's characters. They will build bridges, craft boats, and construct houses for the three goat brothers. These tiny tinkerers will even use basic coding in order to subdue the grumpy Troll! This hands-on program builds teamwork and problem-solving skills in addition to structures!

K – 2nd Grade Programs

A Child Around the World
Subject: Social Studies

Prepare for take-off as we embark on an EdVenture to many wondrous places around the world! Your students will experience life as children from different cultures. From chores, to school, to music and birthdays, kids around the world do many of the same things we do! To top it all off, they’ll get a passport full of stamps, to help remember their journey!

Motion Commotion
Subject: Physical Science
SC Science Standards: 2.P.4
SC Mathematics standards: 2.MDA.3
Push, pull, force, motion, and gravity—this program explores it all! Discover the forces of the world in motion in this exciting program that will teach students about push vs. pull, mass vs. weight, gravity, friction, and inertia. Students will learn about these forces of motion as well as acceleration, deceleration, and velocity through catapult science, scooter races, and EdVenture's take on tug-of-war.

Zap! Electricity at Work
Subject: Physical Science
SC Science Standards: K.S.1; 1.S.1, 3.S.1, 3.P.3, 3.P.3A
It’s electric! Zap! Explores the wonders of electricity, it’s origins, and how to stay safe around it. We will witness the different ways electrons “flow” as we look at the structure of the atom, types of electricity, and it effects on living things. Students will create a human circuit, participate in a Van der Graff demonstration, and even get to try their hands at our “squishy circuits.” This class is sure to be illuminating!
