We’ve just finished 7 fantastic weeks of fun, games and discovery based learning! We are already designing our next summers program to be even better! Until then here are some pictures and video recaps about what summer is about here at KHA!

Below was the curriculum for Masterminds 2017

The children will investigate a crime scene mystery; they find evidence, meet suspects, and investigate the evidence to come up with their own explanations of what happened—just like real forensic scientists do.

This program is a hands-on collection of experiments that blend academic content with curiosity-building activities. Using ordinary materials, these activities ask students to look at how things work and how they change. The students will study bubbles and rainbows, investigate optical illusions, and test the effects of static electricity. While the young scientists make a mess, they ask questions and discover answers—and they develop a variety of skills, from measuring and classifying to predicting, experimenting, and forming hypotheses.

Anybody can learn and we want to see that happen! The students will be able to learn this computer-science by using a variety of internet resources and programs to teach them to code. Coding is becoming one of the most sought after skill across the industry and we want to enable your child with this 21st century skill to lead the next innovative project of the future. Start here.

This course is designed to increase young people’s motivation to read and build their literacy skills by improving their cognitive abilities. At the same time, it develops core values of helpfulness, fairness, personal responsibility, and respect for others. The students will build stamina to read and possibly develop book clubs to discuss stories with other students. This program is aligned with the Common Core and National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) standards.

Number Power lessons are based on the assumption that children learn about the world through everyday interactions with their environment and with others. These math talks and tasks are Academic while allowing for social learning to be integrated naturally. The students will grasp the power of numbers!

The students will be exposed to basic money skills, personal finance, business and life skills. Each child will learn the importance of being financially literate through developmental lessons that are appropriate for each age group. Underlying themes of spending, saving and tithing may also be included to learn to mind their money manners!

Let’s face it, in this techy world the students must know basic keyboarding, terminology and be equipped with basic software knowledge. We want the students to know how to implement and design with technology to not only enhance their learning, but to enhance the learning of others! The projects will be developmentally based according to each age group and may vary.
