Armdale Extracurricular Clubs

SPRING cycle: APRIL 4 to JUNE10 (unless otherwise stated)

Clubs are offered at HCA to foster further community and learning outside of the classroom. The clubs that we offer allow students to join extracurricular activities and meet new friends (outside of their current homeroom) while learning and developing new skills and lessons. Clubs are offered to different age groups and are scheduled for lunch break or after school (unless otherwise indicated).

Once registration has been finalized, the club host will reach out to you and/or the students (MS/HS) via email with confirmation of registration and further details if necessary.

Do you like inventing, tinkering, crafting, coding, and engineering? Come join the HCA Tinker Club!

Our goal is to foster curiosity, creativity, imagination, and a design mind-set in students. HCA students will get a chance to work with tools and equipment to understand what, how, and why aspects of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) are integrated into daily life. Students will be introduced to various types and uses of technologies, such as scratch, makey makeys, and coding robots, and then she will step out of their way so that they can tinker and develop their own technological imaginations. The possibilities are endless in Tinker Club!
