Ripple Effect is a free, weekly, after-school art class at the Batavia public elementary schools that focuses on integrating science, technology, engineering, and math with art. These classes have been generously funded by a grant from the Dunham Foundation and will be available from 2016-2019.
JB Nelson and HC Storm schools will be the first schools to have the program. Over the next three years, all of the BPS elementary schools will be included.
During this 8-week course, students will create cool crustaceans, Fibonacci spirals, Roman arches, and 3-D books! Both art and STEM vocabulary will be reinforced with each fun project.
The instructors are from Water Street Studios in Batavia.
Note: 3rd grade enrollment is now over. 4th grade enrollment is closed for JB Nelson, but remains open for HC Storm. 5th grade enrollment remains open for both schools (as of 9/14/2016).
