PDF file A+ Application for Full Day Classes

Instructors: Zachary and M L Konett

Departing from East Campus by LCC bus, students will be spending the entire class time at Potter Park Zoo exploring, observing and illustrating the zoo life of animals in captivity. Students will choose an animal or animals for in-depth study. They will learn about habitat, physical and social characteristics, the importance of the zoo environment, how animals adapt to changing habitat and how humans affect animal populations, destruction of natural environments and evolutionary physical change that occurs when conditions change. Students will need to supply a sack lunch daily - lunch time supervision included at no additional charge.

Time: Monday-Friday/9:00 am - 4:00 pm  at  LCC East           
Tuition: $310.00



Mission to Mars

Mission to Mars

The time: late 21st Century. After six months en route, the Mars-Earth Transport (MET) has just entered Martian Air Space. The Spacecraft brings a crew that will live on Mars for at least two years and takes back the crew that is currently working in Mars Control. Control of the incoming flight has been transferred from Johnson Space Center in Houston to Mars Control at Chryse Station. Thus far this has been a normal approach, but events on Mars will soon make this particular landing very hazardous! The Challenger Learning Center at the Kalamazoo Valley Museum, our field trip on Friday, uses simulated space flight to teach students about science, math, technology, critical thinking, problem solving, and teamwork. During a simulated mission, teams of students role-play as mission controllers and astronauts in a realistic spacecraft and mission control environment. On this space mission participants assume the roles and duties of the astronaut crew. Just like real astronauts, the crew will read and follow directions to successfully complete their mission. Students collaboratively make decisions, solve problems, and communicate mission results during their 2-hour full-crew mission. They will retrieve and interpret scientific data using technology, perform scientific experiments to test hypotheses, conduct research investigations, and document their findings. Students will need to supply a sack lunch daily - lunch time supervision included at no additional charge.

Time: Mon-Thur/9:00 am - 4:00 pm, Fri/8:00 am - 4:00 pm at LCC East
Tuition: $329.00

LEGO Robotics Camp

August 4 - August 8, 2014  OR
August 11 - August 15, 2014

Instructor: Sean Huberty

We will engage students in science, computer science, technology, engineering, and math with this new hands-on robotics platform, LEGO Mindstorms Robotics EV3. This week long, full day camp will introduce and enable students to build, program and test their solutions based on real-life robotics technology. It contains the EV3 Intelligent Brick, a powerful small computer that makes it possible to control motors and collect sensor feedback. It also enables Bluetooth and Wi-Fi communication as well as provides programming and data logging. Students are encouraged to brainstorm in order to find creative solutions to problems and then develop them through a process of selecting, building, testing, and evaluating. This is also an excellent way of getting students to talk to each other and cooperate as well as giving them hands-on experience with an array of sensors, motors, and intelligent units. Students will need to supply a sack lunch daily - lunch time supervision included at no additional charge.

Time: Monday-Friday/9:00 am - 4:00 pm  at  LCC East        
Tuition: $349.00
