HomeLearners & DLers
If you are home-learning, we also provide elementary school-aged children (4 to 12 years old) with a daily STEM applied learning workshop in our learning centre. We’ve partnered with the New Westminster School District’s Island Discovery program SD #40, Ascend Online Catholic eSchool, and Self Design Learning Community to offer a program for school-aged children who enrol as Distributed Learners. Once a year, we go to Spider Elementary SD #46 (sunshine coast) for 6 week workshops.
Incorporated in each and every class: Scientific method where students make their hypothesis that their design will work and then they test that hypothesis; Human knowledge to that Makes our lives better otherwise known as Technology; the Engineering design process and hands-on applied learning where the students design, build, test, and improve their designs; and Mathematics to test and record their results learning how their project works and then how much they have improved it by.
