After School Classes

After School Classes Weekly Schedule (FALL 2017 – Mission Viejo)

STEAM Class 

This cutting-edge program originated from the need to help students become THINKERS and DOERS.  We infuse technology into every project, giving students opportunities to collaborate, create, and communicate. Our instructors encourage young minds to think and create, and seek to inspire and ignite a passion in youngsters for creativity and self-expression. This class functions as a think tank which encourages both left and right brain thinking and processing.

Tuition: $285 / Semester

Robotics Class
OCHSC’s Robotics class is based on Carnegie Mellon’s Robotics Academy program and research. Students learn to design, program and control fully-functional models and robots that carry out life-like automated tasks. Both semesters will culminate in BattleBot competitions. OCHSC uses VEX Robots which help students unlock the power of their imagination by designing and constructing remote-controlled robotic devices that can lift, throw, climb, gather and expand the boundaries of experimental intelligence.  By working together to create robots that perform exciting challenges, students also gain valuable problem-solving and team-building skills.

During Fall Semester students will learn intermediate level programming and STEM Robotics applications. Students will develop 21st century skills through teamwork, cooperation and collaboration, time management, resource allocation, programming, computational thinking, data-logging, scientific methods, and contextualized mathematics. During Spring Semester students will focus on engineering competencies with programming such as design, iteration, prototype development, design reviews, and project planning.
