This was a great introduction to WeDo 2.0 Lego Robotics. Not only did Lexi and Hunter explain the coding behind WeDo 2.0, but they also taught the kids morse code, as well as emphasizing working as a team. Both my 10yo son AND my 8yo daughter had a great time and really enjoyed the class.
Rex age 10 "I LOVED IT!!! It's fun and it really helps you learn about robotics. The missions were fun and challenging."
Avielle age 8 "It was GREAT!!! If you're interested in building Lego robots, and learning about space, then you should take this class."
The class kept the kids interested and she did some great experiments. She sent home experiments for them to do on their own, too, which were a big hit.
It was fun.
It was a wonderful class and well organized! The material was age-appropriate and engaging. Marsha did a fantastic job!
He looked forward to every Wednesday going to class. He loved the experiments and hands-on learning style.
This was an excellent in-person alternative to TeenPact 2021. My daughter had a great time learning about and "owning" the legislative process, as the students ran campaigns, held elections, introduced bills and formed committees to pass or "kill" them. She made many new friends. Her activities initiated family conversations about the nuances of the legislative process and gave her a great perspective of what it means to be an informed and involved citizen. THANK YOU for such an amazing event!!
My daughter came home each day smiling, with plenty of stories about her committee experiences and some of the hilarious bills that had been introduced. She looked forward to each new day. She admired the work that the older and more experienced students put into the event and spoke about how kind they were to her and the other students. She especially loved the evening social events and is looking forward to social opportunities in the future with her new friends (particularly dances ;D).
This class requires a lot of reading and discussions. It is really helpful in preparing for college. I like the clarity of assignments.
It’s like kind of tough, a lot reading. The teacher is very helpful.
This class has taken my boys from reluctant writers to budding poets! We use to have battles and tears when it would come time for writing, but now my kids are writing poetry and journaling for fun! Georgia showed the kids how learning to write is not only essential, but it is also lot of fun, and we are so grateful to her!
Mrs. Babb was really nice and you learn a bunch of stuff like how to do a concrete poem and acrostic poem.
Mrs. Babb was a very encouraging teacher and this class was super exciting and fun!
This class encouraged my 8 yr old (3rd grader) & 11 yr old (6th grader) to write in ways that were fun and creative. Georgia did a great job of giving feedback to the kids in ways that were positive and my kids looked forward to her class every week. You can see how much Georgia loves teaching because of the ways she interacts with the kids. I would highly recommend this class!
They both looked forward to it every week and enjoyed it!
Make your kids take this class, even if they don't want to!
.I am the student in this case and I wasn't sure I wanted to take this class in the first place. My mom made me take it and I am so glad she did! I thought I was bad at writing essays but it turns out I just needed some guidance. I am a second time alumni to TeenPact this year and I was a bit stressed out about writing the two required essays but now I feel confident that I can get through them. And not only get through them, but do well on them without all of the stress I had before. We've only had two classes so far and I have learned so much already!
Parent: Fun extracurricular class for the upper elementary student! They learned a lot through the study of different kids of maps and it encouraged them to learn all the States!
Student: I had fun leaning about maps!
I memorized all the states!
Parent: My daughter looked forward to this class each week and was eager to show me what she had accomplished. Mrs. Downs makes the sewing projects simple enough that students experience success, which is very encouraging.
Your child should take this class!
Student: It's great! It's fun and I learned a lot.
Parent: My daughter had no previous art training and was able to draw a beautiful flower with coloring that looks as though an adult did it. Deborah was a great teacher and very patient and kind!
Student: "I really liked my art class. I liked that my teacher used easy steps for me to learn how to draw."
Parent: I love how enthusiastic the teacher is about science! My son is able to do the workbook at home and then have the concepts he has learned reinforced by the experiments that he does with Ms. Beverley. I highly recommend this class!
Student:"The experiments are fun and I like the teacher."
Parent: Highly recommend this class to everyone. Beverley is amazing with every one. My daughter with down syndrome mastered her counting by twos and fives.
Student: *** loves her math class! She looks forward to math every week.
Parent: This class is a fun way to approach math enrichment. My children (6 & 8) had fun and practiced some things that we would not have covered at home. The teacher was resourceful and brought in games from home that were unique and engaging.
Students: We had fun!
My favorite part was the puzzles.
Parent: This class was great for accountability in getting the Teen Pact homework done. Teen Pact is new to us, so it was also a great introduction on what Teen Pact is. The kids also got to connect with other Teen Pact kids before they spend the week with them at Teen Pact.
Student: I learned how a bill is passed and how many bills go through our state each year!
Parent: Dr. Jenny is very knowledgeable about nature and our area in particular. All of my kids have learned many interesting things! When we hike as a family, they are able to identify plants, bugs, etc. and give details about each of them. We as parents are very grateful for all they have learned.
Student: We learned a lot about bees and how they make honey. I enjoyed dissecting a flower. It was a fun class!
Parent: All 5 of our kids have learned a great deal about the world around them. We have enjoyed being taught about our native plants by the kids when we hike or even walk around our property. Dr. Jenny has a great relationship with her students and is willing to pursue their interests.
Student: Its a really good class. I really enjoyed learning about bees and bugs. I now have a pet bug (Blue Fainting Death Beetle). I like going outside to learn.
Parent: We have been impressed with how much our kids have learned in Dr. Jenny's class. I'm thankful for both the information shared and the enthusiasm to look more closely at the plants, bugs, and animals in our enviroment.
Student: It was very enjoyable and fun. I had fun learning about everything from honeybees to ants . Dr. Jenny is fun and nice .
Parent: This is the third year we attempted Biology and the first year we are getting through it! The accountability of having a class combined with Beverly's knowledge and skill in teaching has been so incredibly helpful! I REALLY appreciate the opportunity to have this class and I highly recommend it!
Student: This has been a great opportunity to learn. Mrs. Beverly is an awesome teacher. She make learning a lot of fun! I highly recommend this class!
Parent: This class has been such a help in getting through this course! She is able to be creative in her teaching methods and engage every student! I highly recommend her classes!!
Student: I wanted to take this class because I plan to be a nurse. I enjoyed the experiments - especially the microscope work. It was fun to make a jello cell. I really like Mrs. Beverly and her teaching techniques!
Parent: Mr. Koerner runs a wonderful kickball program! Both of my sons (8 & 12) enjoyed the class. It was great to have so many age/skill levels.
Student: I can't wait until kickball starts again!
Parent: This week long class was an overview of different games. My sons really enjoyed it, and the class was held in the morning before it got too hot!
Student: I liked learning different games.
