Saturday Academy: October-May. Join BEAM for the 2019/2020 academic year as we explore a new STEAM career each month with our industry partners. Students K-12th grade will meet on the first Saturday of the month 10am-1pm at UB south Campus and participate in three hands on activities led by engineers and scientists. This is a great opportunity for younger students to gain exposure to a range of engineering concepts and careers. Older students can learn what are partner companies are looking for in a future engineer and how to get there. Lunch is provided.
October-May. For students in 6-8th, we are offering an additional Saturday Academy class called Creative Building. On the first and third Saturday of each month, join our architects, Mellissa and Peter, as they teach a course on problem solving, creative design, and computer programming using Lego Mindstorm robotics. This is a hands on course perfect for students interested in joining our BEAM robotics program in the next few years. Students can participate in both Saturday Academy and Creative Building!
