STEAM Project in San Diego

Science, technology, engineering, art, math & maker (STEAM) programs for preschool through 8th grade

Hawking After School Programs

Gizmos & Gadgets Kids Lab After School Classes are anything but ordinary. We have many one-of-a-kind classes available and are designed especially for kids in Grades K-6. The program is full of fun, educational and inspiring ways to help your children embrace the STEAM philosophy of Hawking Hbots!

Engineering Class (Grades K-6)

Session 4: April 12-May 31

Engineering MashUp

Every Wednesday: 12.30 – 2.45 pm (2 hours)

8 Week session: $160 / $80 per month (including all wood and materials for all projects)

Please note that parents have the choice to pay fully ($160) or make two payments of $80 per month – 10% sibling discount

April session get your hard hats on and get ready to Engineer!

Each week students will discover the Systems Engineering Process to define, design, make prototypes and test their amazing builds. Students will gain invaluable knowledge that each week builds upon that foundation to design and create amazing engineering projects. HBots will go through safety lessons that will prepare them to use a wide variety of tools, including saws, drills and sanding (never the favorite- but most important!).

This session we will be creating our very own wooden stilts, as well as design and make our very own cool HBOTS that are individually designed by each student. We call them HBot Robot Bobble Heads! If you have completed one of our classes before or this is your first time it is all new builds so come and join the fun!


Java Computer Programming Class (Grades 4-6)

Session 1: Feb 6 – March 16 ($120 session)

We are excited to introduce Java-Game computer programming into Hawking Charter!

In this session students will start with simple coding and become comfortable with Java language. This class is twice a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30-5:30pm.

Each student will be provided with a laptop computer for the session.

Students will learn about project design, object-oriented programming, console applications, graphics applications and many elements of the Java language. Students will build on what they learn each day. Coding-writing computer programs has something for everyone; creativity, logic, simulations, storytelling, design and problem-solving. We begin with simple programming until it builds into more Java-complex coding.

No programming experience is necessary but doing common tasks on a computer is useful.

Our last session reached full capacity very quickly!

Please note that parents have the choice to pay fully ($160) or make two payments of $80 per month – 10% sibling discount
