BOSTOM STEM LAB: AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM
Boston STEM Lab is a hands-on program for children ages 3-6. Through play, experimentation and model making students learn about science, technology, engineering and mathematics in a fun and intuitive way. Classes are instructed by Eugenia Rojas – a neuroscientist PhD.
In-person & virtual options offered this Spring – In-person Summer weeks just added!
Summer STEM classes are hands-on and play/inquiry based. All STEM materials are provided. Max 10 students
OUTDOOR SPRING CLASSES
(children are accompanied by a caregiver)
NATURE AROUND US
In this class our young scientists will explore living organisms through experimentation, play and the making of models. Students will plant seeds and observe them grow to full plants. We will also learn about insects as we make models, experiments and engineering design challenges.
SCIENCE-ART FOR CREATIVE MINDS
In this hands-on class students apply scientific techniques to create art. We extract natural pigments; create secret messages, fluorescent paintings and more!
OUTDOOR SUMMER CLASSES
Ages 3.5-6 - 2:30-5:00pm
**Drop off program - children must be potty-trained**
7/6 - 7/9
In this program students explore their senses through experimentation, play, science-art activities and engineering design. We make natural perfume, design “better” ears, make a magnifier glass with water and more. Students bring their projects home!
7/12 - 7/16
Nature Around Us:
In this program students explore living organisms through experimentation, play and the making of models. Students will plant seeds and observe them grow to full plants and study insects. They will use dissection microscopes, make leaf prints, and design a bug’s hotel. Students bring their projects home!
7/19 - 7/23
Science-Art for Creative Minds:
Insects, plants and more! From seed to plant, we’ll learn about the life-cycle of plants by doing some potting of our own. We’ll also have nature scavenger hunts; hatch butterflies; make terrariums; dig for insects; make sun catchers; and more! It’s all about our natural habitat this third week.
7/26 - 7/30
Engineering Design Challenges: Water projects:
What’s more fun in the summer than playing with water? In this program students do science experiments and engineering design challenges with water. They make a water filter, build boats and submarines, experiment with soap bubbles and more. Students bring their projects home!

PLEASE NOTE: STEM Classes (as all programs at Galoop) are not licensed by the Department of Early Education and Care or any other State agency. All children must register for a specific class (here STEM on a weekly basis) and must leave on completing that class each day.
4/26 - 6/21
(No class 5/31)
In this class students perform experiments, make models and play games as they develop mathematical thinking and problem solving skills. The introduction to numbers, quantities, patterns, data collection, plotting, pre-coding and others are presented with an experimental approach. This class is fun and engaging.
4/26 - 6/7
(No class 5/31)
In this virtual STEM Lab students are introduced to the structure of the atom, elements, molecules and chemical reactions. We make models and do fun experiments. It’s a great hands-on experience!
MATTER AROUND US
4/27 - 6/1
In this class our young scientists will explore the physical characteristics of some elements. Particularly, we will focus on the transitions of water to study the different states of matter. All together, through fun experimentation, and science-art activities students will discover a part of the sciences of physics and chemistry.
