Explorers After School Enrichment Program
STEAM AHEAD WITH EXPLORERS is a unique after-school program designed to provide Homer 33C students with an opportunity to explore different STEAM subject areas using interactive, hands-on learning experiences. Workshops are offered in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts (language and fine arts), and Math. Workshops are generally taught by professionals in their fields and provide diverse and unique learning opportunities.
Workshops are offered in grades kindergarten through sixth grade. Kindergarten workshops are conducted in the spring during the normal school day. First and second grade workshops are after school and all students are invited to participate. For grades third through sixth all students are welcome to participate in the after-school science, technology and fine arts workshops. The language arts and math workshops will continue to be offered to students who excel in those subject areas.
NEW FOR 2016-17 SCHOOL YEAR--LEGO® Robotics Workshops will be offered to the fourth grade students from October through April.

The workshops will culminate with a local and state competition in April, 2017. Enrollment will be limited to 20 students per school. Keep your eyes posted for further information.
A few things to remember when signing your child up for a workshop:
- Fill out permission slips completely—don’t forget to check whether your child will be taking the after-school bus or not.
- Turn in permission slip by due date to your school’s office or child’s teacher.
- Be prompt when picking up your child from the workshops; on the flip side, please do not pick up your child early as it disrupts the class.
- Any questions or concerns—please contact Program Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 708-712-6543
