Woodworking Class (Grades 1-5)


Session 1: Mondays Sept 24-Oct 15

4 week Session

($60 for 4 weeks including all materials)


We are excited to Engineering Woodworking into Kate Sessions Elementary!

Get your hard hats on and get ready to Engineer!

Each week students will discover the Systems Engineering Process to define, design, nake 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. Students will go through safety lessons that will prepare them to use a wide variety of tools, including saws, drills and the importance of sanding (never the favorite – but the most important!).

This session each student will create their own R2-D2 bookend out of wood. Because….who doesn’t like Star Wars!

We will also be designing and building our own porcupine by sawing and using hammer and nails!
