ALL GREAT SCIENTISTS WERE ONCE IN
CITYATWORK STEM CLASSES
CITYatwork Lab for Learning Classes include hands-on activities that combine science, engineering, art, and creative exploration. Schools may contract for a single class or a curriculum collection for Grades Pre K-12. All classes are aligned with NYC, NYS and NGSS Standards.
CITYATWORK STEM PROGRAMS
Learn about the power of flowers in this hands-on class series that combines science, art, and creative thinking. In the Flower Power series, students make their own perfume from flowers and create flower art.
Learn about the biology, behavior, and habitats of wild, weird, and wacky amphibians in this class series. Observe live amphibians, learn how to save their natural ecosystems, and make Amphibian Art.
In this class series, children learn about the wild and wondrous World of Plants! Activities include growing container gardens, designing plant experiments, growing a hydroponic garden, and learning about native NY tree and plant species.
Learn about one of nature's most fascinating biological transformations--caterpillars can liquify their bodies to turn into moths and butterflies! Feed caterpillars, observe cocoons, release butterflies and moths, and draw your discoveries in Caterpillar Cuties!
The Water Cycle allows life to survive on Planet Earth: water is wild, wondrous, and weathering! In this hands-on series, learn about Wild Water by testing PH and pollution levels, tracking weather, and designing water experiments.
Learn about Bird Habitats in this hands-on, environmental engineering and biology series. Activities include designing birdhouses for NY State birds, learning and mimicking bird calls, and discovering preferred food types and habitats for birds!
Get ready to Rock Out in this geology series. Make your own fossils, learn how to sort rocks from minerals, open geodes, make lava and magma, and learn how igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks are formed!
Trees help supply our oxygen on Earth and support almost every human activity, including producing paper, homes, and fuel. Learn to identify the trees of NY State, make tree habitats, and experiment in Tree Time!
Introduce young scholars to ideas of engineering, including design, drawing, building, balance, problem-solving, and hands-on construction. Students learn to engineer boats, bridges, buildings, and robots in Early Engineering!
Engineering is a key component of STEAM education for K-12 students. Learn about the science of batteries, voltage regulators, resistors, LED lights, and speakers, and make your own working electronic projects in Creative Circuits!
In the 21st Century, young scientists have the opportunity to learn skills as Earth stewards. Discover principles of energy conservation, recycling, ecology, gardening, global climate care, and biodiversity in the hands-on course Earth Keepers!
Robots have fascinated our imaginations for more than 100 years, and the lives of young scientists in the 21st Century will be shaped by robots in every arena. In this course, scientists will design, build, and engineer interactive robots for Robot Races!
