STEAM Programming
In partnership with Yavneh Day School, the JCC is proud to present STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) programs. Children will discover new ways of building through the Tinkering workshop and get technical with the Pre-robotics and Robotics labs. More info: phyllis@apjcc.org or 408.357.7497.


STEAM: Tinkering (K-1st grade)
Students will be engaged in learning how things work, building or creating new artifacts, and exploring many scientific and engineering concepts. As good scientists, kids will keep a journal where they will draw and write about their discoveries! Following the engineering design process and the scientific method, kids will be doing projects that involve STEAM. More info: phyllis@apjcc.org or 408.357.7497.
