Hk Summer STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) is a full-day summer enrichment program during which your HYPOTHEkid will conduct experiments, create projects, meet practicing scientists and engineers, and take trips based on the theme of the week!
Location: The program will be held at Corpus Christi, located on 121st between Broadway and Amsterdam directly behind Columbia University’s Teachers College. The Morningside Heights area is served by the A, B, C, D, and 1 subway lines.
Dates: 8 weekly themed sessions from July 9th to August 31st
Times: 8:30 AM – 5:30 PM
Ages: Rising Kindergarten to Grade 5. Students are grouped together by the grade level they will be entering this fall.
Tuition: $695/week. 10% multi-week, or sibling discounts available. All material fees and trips are included. Sign up for our newsletter to be informed when the scholarship application opens.
Got questions that need answers? Creative ideas that you want to improve? Plans that need… planning? Well HYPOTHEkids is going to to help you crack the enigma of Engineering! We’ll take students through the engineering design process as we solve some problems that HYPOTHEkids face every day. Come explore the maker world, design, and then redesign as HYPOTHEkids engineer a cooler more useful tomorrow!
Look all around: street lights, trains, greenspace, skyscrapers. A city like no other! But how did architects, city planners, engineers, and environmental scientists make such a great place? Come find out at NYC STEAMed!
Technology has changed the way we interact with the world – let’s contribute to that change! During Code Connector, HYPOTHEkids will learn just what it takes to be a software engineer! Try on your coding cap as we explore introductory programming and all the fun logic behind it!
Step into the 3rd dimension as we explore the exciting world of 3D models! We’ll use our math skills to understand just how to build 3D models and to explore applications of 3D models like video games, 3D printing, and so much more!
Body, organs, cells, proteins, DNA, molecules…how do they all tie together? How can we learn from something we can’t see? Come learn some molecular biology techniques as we figure out what genes are and how proteins aren’t just a part of our diet.
One of the most complex systems that we’re continuously exploring – the human body is a mystery. We’ll explore how your food goes from teeth to gut in the digestive system; how billions of neurons can send a message faster than texting; and even how our sickly body has its own system to fight off the bad viruses and diseases. My Body Alive will take you on a journey inside like never before!
Even in the city, the wonders of nature are ALIVE and photosynthesizing. Scientists will explore the ecological principles behind NYC’s natural habitats. We’ll learn about food webs, populations, species, and so much more!
Mankind might have made it but nature powers it! In this engineering themed week, our scientists will explore how to create better natural habitats, how to harness nature’s energy, and how to recycle the many energy sources found around us!
