Winooski Rec. Presents Wicked Cool for Kids

Wicked Cool For School Logo

Winooski Recreation and Parks have teamed up with Wicked Cool for Kids to provide after school and vacation programs! Wicked Cool For Kids is a STEAM Enrichment Program that helps children develop their understanding of the world, whether it is investigating essential concepts in science, art, or technology. Their programs let kids get their hands and minds around two different, but equally important, ways of seeing, experiencing, and understanding life. By using both sides of their brain, kids develop a deeper understanding and appreciation of the world around them.

Winooski Rec is offering two amazing programs:


Lego WeDo 2.0This event teaches programming skills while making science come to life!  The newly designed software and LEGO building kits allows kids to make untethered, free-roaming robots capable of completing structured and open-ended tasks.  Build roaming bots that use sensors to know when to stop or create a shake table to test house designs to withstand an earthquake.  Explore fun new programming options with WeDo 2.0 and take home your own mini figure!

Wicked Cool Med School: Is there a doctor in the house? Follow the progress of your own “patient” all week as we journey into the inner workings of the human body. Keep medical charts and become an anatomy specialist while learning the body systems. Create a “slime” cell, big bones, moving joints, and 3-D eyeballs.
