School’s Out MOCHA’s In (SOMI)

Keeping the kids thinking, solving and creating on days off from school!

When Oakland, Berkeley and Alameda schools have days off, MOCHA fills in with day camps that have STEAM focused projects. Our intention is to engage your child’s mind while exploring projects that stimulate problem solving skills, encourage innovative approaches and deliver complete works of art at the end of the day. Ages 6-12.

Think like an engineer from designing to building. Create self standing structures with non-traditional materials. We will also explore some biodiversity and make mono-prints while using some native plants. We’ll use magnifying glasses and think like a biologist while we make some close observations and record our data. Experiment with different chemistry formulas to make your own pigments for watercolor and make beautiful paintings. Explore engineering with Lego robots and create cool tech art!
