Co-Curricular Class Descriptions

Wonder Workshop K-3rd grade ($500/15 weeks)
Wonder students will engage in creative construction, imaginative engineering, design models and work in collaborative teams. They will be introduced to basic engineering and physics as they problem solve, test ideas and analyze results in a project- based approach. Students will study inventions, designs in structures and tinker with how different things work. They will learn to draft a plan, collect resources and consider possible results, all powered by play. Students will develop a work journal to reflect on project development and the fun adventures of every seasonal STEM lesson as they document the learning process with a sense of wonder. Activities are student driven; they will research their interest and motivations through high engagement challenges. Susan Varghese brings nineteen years of experience in Early Childhood Education, as a classroom teacher, teacher trainer and former curriculum developer. She has taught in Christian private schools throughout Austin. Susan studied Child Development at Texas State University, with an emphasis in early brain development and she is a state certified Preschool Director and has been a school administrator for ten years.
