Buxton Recreation is offering two Mad Science programs to the Buxton Community this fall. Please see program details below:

Mad Science- Radical Robotics!
Grades: K-5
Price: Resident $96/Non-Resident $101
Dates: Tuesdays, 10/2-11/27 (No Class 11/20)
Times: 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Location: BCES- Auxiliary Art Room

Robotics has never been this exciting! The applications of robotics is all around us and we invite girls and boys to discover first-hand the design, construction, and application of modern-day robotics. Through the integration of exciting modular robotics learning systems and various types of robots, children will discover how robotic devices use sensors to learn about their environment and how people use robots to get work done. Explore the mechanical aspects of robots, circuitry, and programming. Discover circuits using squishy conductive dough and snap together circuit board modules to perform exciting functions. Spend a class navigating programmable robots through obstacle courses. Children will have the opportunity to build their very own robot to take home with them. Mad Science has spent years developing robotics programs for elementary students; we can confidently say that we have robotics down to a science!

Classes Include: Robot Challenge, Gear it Up, Robot Building (Table Top Robot), Robots in Action, Shocking, Isn't It?, Real Life Robots, Get Your Code On, and Sensory Overload

January-March Session: Marvels of Science
April-June: Take a Bite out of Science

Mad Science- Mission: Code
Grades: 4-6
Price: Resident $97/Non-Resident $102
Dates: Mondays, 10/1-12/10 (No class on 10/8, 11/12, or 11/19)
Times: 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Location: Buxton Town Hall

In the Mad Science Mission Code program, kids learn and apply the basic principles of coding in a fun and educational game-like environment! Kids work on programming concepts, including fundamental programming concepts including: sequences, loops, algorithms, functions, conditionals, and variables!

The program helps them strengthen their math skills, visualize abstract concepts, and engage in creative problem solving. It also prepares them for a world where digital literacy is as important as reading and writing. 

Participants will have access to the gaming system for one year after the class!
