FasTracKids: Science Enrichment
Children are born scientists with curious minds, they investigate every facet of life.
FasTracKids takes advantage of a child’s natural curiosity and investigative nature and inspires their minds to explore the world around them. Our FasTracKids Science Enrichment Class is Designed for children ages 6-10 years old (1st – 5th Grade).
By using hands-on, interactive, inquiry based approach to teaching, our upper east side FasTracKids science program inspires children to discover the wonders of Science. Our goal is to make learning exciting and “Cleverly Disguised as Fun!” Children work in collaborative groups and are encouraged to communicate their findings through video-taped presentations. They develop superb skills and bring that enthusiasm and knowledge home with them so the learning continues.

Technology: Bytes & Bots
Young scientists today are surrounded by technology. In this unit, students will develop a the technology that exists all around them every day . Young scientists enrolled in this unit will explore the advances in medical technology and understand how to prepare for future inventions. In another section, students become civil engineers and design streets, bridges and railways as they discover the wonders of technology in transportation.
STEAM Topics Covered
Kids get to dig in the dirt to experience how paleontologists make fossil discoveries and learn about the world of the past. Explore the world of our ancient ancestors, plant and animal life from ages long ago.
Kids will learn how marine biologists help protect our oceans and sea animals. From cleaning up an oil spill to tracking sea turtles, they get to experience how marine biologists positively impact marine life.
What happens if there are no roads to take kids to school or if there is limited water for a neighborhood? Students will tackle these types of challenges as they learn what urban planners do every day.
Students will learn about different artistic styles and the art and design that are essential parts of our human experience. Students will create their own masterpieces and experiment with different techniques.
