Intro To 3-D Printing and Computer-Aided Design
Learn how to design a 3D model in this class! We will be learning the basics of CAD (computer aided design) to create a simple project that will be printed and shipped to the students. Students will learn the how to use some of the basic tools that are shared across all CAD software platforms such as: Isometric viewing, using planes as a canvas, creating sketches, extruding sketches and setting parameters, variables and constraints.
Explorations in Matter - Physical Science
Mary Anne Cheraz
Explore the intricacies and excitement of physical science! Investigate forces: gravitational, magnetic, electrical, and more. Model and examine the wave actions of light and sound. Experiment with chemical mixtures and reactions.

Entomology: A World of Bugs
This class is a lot of fun for all those insect lovers! We will learn the scientific facts of different bugs and study their characteristics.
Biochemistry - General
We will learn about the chemical reactions that take place in living organisms. Combining biology and chemistry, we will look at the biochemistry of the cell, metabolism, and genetics.
- Molecular components of cells Part 1 - Chemistry as a basis of biological phenomena, water, pH, amino acids, & proteins
- Molecular components of cells Part 2 - Nucleotides, nucleic acids, recombinant DNA (cloning/chimeric genes)
- Molecular components of cells Part 3 - Lipids, membranes, carbohydrates, & cell surfaces
- Cellular Energetics - Thermodynamics of biological systems, ATP & energy-rich compounds
- Metabolism and Its Regulation - overview, glycolysis, energy producing pathways
Robotics: Tinker Series
The tinker series is your child's first step into the world of robotics. Students will learn the basics of circuit building while making a new creation in every session!
Intro to Coding: Simple Systems in Python
Continue your coding journey in python with this class. Here students will build on the fundamentals learned in Intro to Coding: Python to build a program with a simple function. This class will end with the project of making a program that will flip a coin when asked.

Intro to Coding: Creating Graphics With Python
Returning students will be learning how to use Python to create simple images and animations. This is where the magic happens! Being able to create visual effects through code opens the door for so much more. This class will end with a small project where students will create fractal trees.
Diving Into Hardware: Part 1
Discover the world of circuit building in my Diving Into Hardware class. In this hands on class, students will be using electronic parts found in the real world to better understand the technology around us.
Intro To Robotics: Part 1
Get your child started on their journey into engineering! Students in this class will learn about the different aspects of robotics including: Mechanical engineering/industrial design, Electrical engineering and software engineering/coding. Students will use this knowledge to build, wire and program their own robot.
Intro To Robotics: Part 2
Continue the robotics journey! In this class students will learn programming techniques that will help them better control the robots they built in Intro To Robotics: Part 1. Students that participate in this class will learn Morse code, how musical tones and frequency are related, and what an incremental operator is.
Diving Into Hardware: Part 2
Continue the journey of discovery into the world of circuit building. For students who are continuing from Diving into Hardware: Part 1.
Diving into Hardware: Part 3
Continue exploring the world of circuit building in this class for continuing Diving into Hardware: Part 2 students.
Biochemistry and Pathological Psychiatry
This class will look at the connections between pathological psychiatry and biochemistry. We will discover the complex chemical processes that occur in the brain and how these are related to pathological mental illness.
Immunology and Disease
This class will study the functions and structures of immune systems in organisms. We will look at the human immune system and it's role in creating defense forces for the body to fight disease.
General Biology - Semester 2 *2X/week
This is the second semester of a year-long course in general biology. We cover the learning objectives for the state of California for high school biology.
*This class meets 2 times per week - on Wednesday and Thursday.

Have you heard the music of the sun? Do you know which planet spins backwards and which planet rolls around the sun on its side? Do you know what is believed to be at the center of the Milky Way? Join us for discovery, fun and game show madness in the galaxy realm!
When Yuri Gagarin became the first person in space, he traveled around the Earth in 2 hrs. That marked the moment when humankind moved beyond observing the mighty sky and started to explore it. This class is one of my passion subjects: the Universe. We will study the Milky Way, the Solar system, including all planets, dwarf planets, moons, asteroids, and comets.
