  • Beneath the surface - Mammalian Biology Adaptation

    Are you interested in how the body works?  Want to know how mammals differ? This class will cover the basic anatomy of mammals including the musculoskeletal system, cardiovascular system, digestive system, and nervous system. We will study the interesting variations of each of these systems based on diet (carnivore or herbivore) and the environment in which they live.
  • Civil Engineering

    Is that bridge safe to drive on?  Will this dam hold? Will that building sway in the wind? Will the storm flood the levees? How does that tower even stand up? Come learn how the Civil Engineers answer these questions by considering the properties of structures and materials. We will learn about forces, build bridges, consider the environment, and more as we investigate this oldest form of engineering.
  • Programming from Scratch - Introduction to the cool side of computers

    How would you like to make your own cartoon? How about your own video game? Design the next battleship or cool smartphone app?  Come learn to "scratch" and watch your designs come alive. Learn to build your own cities and protect your citizens from alien invasion. Navigate through a maze to find the prize. Have other ideas - that's great! You can design them during this course as well.  If you are scratching your head, then this is the course for you!
  • Lego Robitics

    Ever wonder what it takes to make your robot move on its own? In this class, you will explore how to command a robot after building it with LEGOs. This class will let you use yoru creativity, logic, and problem solving skills while learning computer science, engineering, and math concepts.
  • Titanic Exhibit at the NM Museum of Natural History and Science 

    On April 15, 1912, the world's largest ship shank 963 miles form New York City after colliding with an icebergThe DCSP will tour the "Titanic: The Articact Exhibition".
