In the new CE Value blog posts, WDMCS Community Education will share news about our six values: people focus, respect, relevance, enrichment, fun, and team unity. For our first CE Value post, we are highlighting relevance.

Elevating students’ STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) skills is currently a top priority in education. To keep WDMCS Community Education programs and courses relevant, we are continuing to offer strong STEM-based courses like Bricks 4 Kidz® and Computer Programming. One of the Summer of Learning classes designed specifically to boost students’ STEM knowledge and skills is Science Exploration.

Students entering grades 1–3 can have “Deep Sea Adventures” or explore “Electricity, Energy, and Power” in the morning, then go on “Dinosaur Digs” or study “Weather Wonders” in the afternoon. Students entering grades 4–7 can spend their mornings “Exploring Rocketry” or learning about “Crime Scene Investigations.” In the afternoon, they can learn about “Ecosystem Interactions” or conduct “Exciting Experiments.”

The Science Exploration class will be held July 20–24 and is offered in the mornings, afternoons, or full days. WDMCS Community Education is excited to offer students this opportunity to develop their STEM skills in a fun and exciting environment that encourages them to think like scientists.
