Thanksgiving Boat STEM Challenge

  • Ages:
    Toddler, Preschool, Gradeschooler

In this one-time course, students will review and learn basic STEM concepts including some shapes (trapezoid, rectangle, circle), parts of a ship (sails, mast, deck, etc), surface tension (suspends boat in water), high/low density in water (why a boat floats), and wind power as a source of green energy (wind blowing on masts to move the ship). Students are highly encouraged to participate in classroom discussions when called upon by the teacher. After a brief presentation at the start of class, students with be guiding through making an adorable replica sailboat/ship that will help to reinforce their learning. At the end of class we will test our boats in the sink (or large container of water) to watch them float!
Please consult the “Learner Supply List” tab for a complete list of the materials required for this course – it isn’t much.

Denise C.

I graduated in 2017 from Georgia Southern University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Arts. I have experience teaching from preschool to high school and beyond, tutoring 1-on-1, teaching groups of 30+, and anywhere in between. I formerly taught with VIPKID for nearly 3 years, was a language and arts/music teacher in Europe for about a year, and have traveled around Europe and the UK. During that time, I taught art, music, and movement/choreography classes locally, where preschoolers and elementary-age students came to learn English and study various topics through theatre and play activities. In the past, I've also taught kindergarten through 5th grade students in a US public school. I am currently a remote-working private teacher. In my free time, I enjoy playing and writing music on my ukulele. I have a passion for all forms of art and the creative process that comes with it. Whatever my current situation may be, I feel motivated to empower young students to realize their academic and creative potential through meaningful play and personal mentorship. I am looking forward to creating fun and productive courses through Outschool and I look forward to seeing you in my classroom soon!
