SRVEF
Summer Imagineering Enrichment

Every summer SRVEF offers enrichment classes for SRVUSD students. Our longer summer classes allow us to offer more in-depth science, technology, engineering, art, and math curriculum to students entering 4th-8th grade.  Students are given daily challenges, connected to industry experts, introduced to engaging project based learning activities, and encouraged to explore new STEAM topics.

Chemistry

Students will learn and explore chemistry with hands on experiments. The bubbles of bath bombs will be used to understand chemical reactions. Acid and base chemistry will be explained as students make their own soap. Our budding chemists will also discover how the shapes of molecules can be used to mimic smells. All our lab experiments will expose students to the skills needed for middle school & high school courses.
 

Roblox

Get ready to dive into the world of Roblox and create your very own games! Students will create their own game levels, environments, and worlds. They will build upon those worlds by adding narrative and mechanics to create an interactive game for one or multiple players. In this course, students will learn the basics of game design and programming using Roblox Studio and the programming language Lua.
 

Physical Computing

This physical computing class will introduce students to both the Raspberry Pi and the Python Programming Language. Students will learn about the physical hardware of a Raspberry Pi, how it operates, and how to use Python to program input/output components, sensors, and the Pi-camera. In this class, students will see just how powerful this micro-computer is, and get some coding experience by controlling these accessories with Python. 
 

3D Printing

This course is an introduction to 3D design & printing. Students will learn how to use modern 3-D printing software and learn how to apply principles of design to their own creations. Student will create 3-D prototypes of everyday items. At the end of the session, students be able to take home their creations! Students will also be able to work collaboratively to meet specific design challenges.
 

Bionics

This is an introductory course to the field of Bionics and the study of how robotics and anatomy help solve everyday problems in health and science. Students will learn how engineers solve problems with technology advances and support a better quality of life for many other individuals. Students will learn how the design of assistive technology is interdisciplinary as this class combines mechanical, electrical, and biomedical engineering concepts. Projects will include an introduction to prosthetics, touch sensors, heart valves, and pneumatics.
 

Bio-Tech

This class gives students an opportunity to examine the impact that Biotechnology has on science today while doing engaging inquiry based experiments. Students will learn about ancient biotechnology by making root beer and cheese, study biological systems using real laboratory safety protocol to modify and clone glowing genes, become CDC Disease scientists as they figure out the origin of a “contagious” disease, and play the role of forensics crime scene investigators to figure out a forensic scenario that is commonly known as DNA Fingerprinting.  Students will learn laboratory techniques including pipetting and gel electrophoresis, and become familiar with the equiptment commonly used in biotechnology labs today.
 

Rocketry

In this class students will build and launch their own model rockets, some of which can travel over 1000 feet high. Exploring the latest research available in space technology, we will discuss the enormity and vastness of space and take a walk through a “scaled down” version of our own solar system. Students will learn about atmospheric pressure on various planets and build high-pressure air rockets. We will also dive into the science and history of flight and aeronautics and test our own planes using the same flight techniques as jets and airplanes. Students will be able to take home any rockets they build and recover after launch.
 

Robotics

Learn Python fundamentals in a fun and entertaining environment! Students will program Linkbot robots to move through a course, play music, and change LED colors and blinking patterns.  These modular robots can be connected with other robots to create larger creatures or machines limited only by your student¹s imagination. As the tasks become more complex students will dive deeper into programming logic to make their robot creations come alive.
