Sunday, September 8, 11 a.m. – 12 p.m.: *NEW* Kids SCIENCE Dojo. Kids Science Dojo at Denhac is a weekly science class designed for elementary through high school-aged kids. Students will be learning science topics through cooperative projects, lectures, and safe experiments. Attendees under the age of 13 are required to be accompanied by a designated guardian.
To help make a good class for both kids and their guardians as well as determining a good day and time for the class, our wonderful member and host Ashleigh has set up a couple of surveys. I encourage everyone who is considering the class at least read the description at the top of the Parents survey to give you information about Ashleigh and the class.
Topic: With the Gem, Mineral, and Fossil show at the Denver Coliseum this weekend this week’s topic is Geology! There will be a guest speaker and some specimen on display at Denhac followed by a ‘field trip’ if you will, to the Coliseum for the show. Parking and admission to the show is free. All children must be accompanied by a guardian for the show.
Sunday, September 8 12 p.m. – 3 p.m.: Kids Coder Dojo. The Kids Coder Dojo at Denhac is a weekly computer programming class designed for elementary through high school-aged kids. Students will begin by using a free and open source visual programming language called Scratch (http://scratch.mit.edu/, available on Windows, MacOSX and Linux), and will be able to move on to more advanced languages as they progress at their own pace. Attendees under the age of 13 are required to be accompanied by a designated guardian (though guardians are encouraged to attend for all ages). Attendees should bring a laptop or netbook for each student they bring if they can (and you are encouraged to bring extras if possible for those without access to a computer). RSVP on Meet Up.
Denhac is a non-profit organization that provides a variety of technology, art, DIY, and craft-related classes for all ages, and survives on donations and membership dues. As with (almost) all Denhac classes, attendance is free of charge and membership is not required. Donations are strongly encouraged.
