- About Us -
Davinci's Apprentice is a S.T.E.A.M. based education program designed to take full advantage of this amazing time of growth in your little one's brain, through the use of HANDS ON EXPERIMENTS giving them opportunities to question, try, fail, learn and actually DO science!
Is My Kiddo Too Young for this Class?
- Definitely not! Our curriculum is application based, not theory based. What that means is that in each class we all be participating in actual experiments and creations. No one is ever too young to watch a baking soda rocket fly!
What Will They Be Learning?
The answer to that question is way too long for one paragraph here, but we're going to try anyway...
Davinci's Apprentice is a weekly S.T.E.A.M. based (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Mathematics) program created by Dance Dreams LLC. This program will help build your child's curiosity, creative thinking and problem solving by working with Robotics, Engineering, Life, Physical and Earth Science, Art, Physics, Chemistry, Artist Appreciation and even Coding!

- Sample of Past Curriculum -
Can you actually pour water from one glass into another glass 2 feet away?! Yes you can! This week we'll learn all about the power water has to actually STICK!
Crystal Star Mobile:
Removing solute from the solution...sounds boring right?! Not with Davinci's Apprentice! This week we'll learn all about Chromatography and Engineering, and we'll make a really cool star mobile while we do it!
Salt Crystal Feathers
What could make possibly make a soft feather better? If it was all hard and crunchy of course! This week we'll actually take time to see the crystals forming and talk about what that means and how it happens :)!
This week we're going to make an awesome painting...but not with a paintbrush...we're using the forces of MOTION & GRAVITY instead of course! Swinging Pendulum = Paint Brush...Sir Isaac Newton would be so proud!
Everyone's heard of Cross-Linked Polyacrylate Copolymer right?! Well after this week your little scientist will not only know what it is...they will use it to make jiggly little crystal sponges! Bonus...they even drink water!
Is it a solid or a liquid...neither...it's a non-Newtonian fluid. WHAT?! This week we'll learn about the different states of matter and make a MESS doing it!
Miscible or Immiscible? What does that even mean?! This week we'll learn about density by making a floating marble pretty enough to display on your windowsill.
This week we'll use fizzy baking soda paint to learn about the different phases of the moon and why we can only see part of it at different times. This fun project lets our little scientists display their creative side and learn some astronomy in the process!
Did you know that salt is Hygroscopic? That means it can absorb both liquid water and water vapor in the air. We will use this amazing trait to paint with glue and a liquid dropper...it's gonna be awesome!
Coding a Lego Maze
Welcome to Coding 101. This introduction will teach your scientist about perspective and how to figure things out from a different point of reference than their own! This is an incredibly important skill for any scientist...plus we've made it fun by making it all about getting a little Lego person out of his maze!!!
