Description

Future-proof your child with a Pongos Learning Lab membership. Each child’s membership includes:

  • Weekly Clubs: The number of sessions your child can attend depends on which membership level you select. See the weekly club schedule below.
    • Single Membership: One club per week is included.
    • Double Membership: Two clubs per week are included.
    • Ultimate Membership: All clubs are included! Your child can come as many times as they want, and for as long as they want, while clubs are in session.
  • 10% discount on all of our camps. This discount does not apply to lab fees or before/aftercare.
  • $25 discount on birthday parties.
  • 10% discount on Parents Night Out
  • Unlimited admission to the Little Learners Lab for members under the age of 7. If your child qualifies for Little Learners Lab, no need to sign up for a Little Learners Lab membership if they have a K-8 club membership!
  • 50% discount on Little Learners Lab membership for younger siblings (sign up for the K-8 club membership first to activate the discount)

Each child needs their own membership, so if you have more than one child, please add a membership for each one who will be taking advantage of the benefits.

Memberships are valid from the date of sign-up, and automatically renew each month unless you cancel before the renewal date. If you cancel within 48 hours after renewal, contact us if you need a refund. We assume that the office will be closed occasionally for holidays, weather, and other events, and accounted for that in the monthly cost of the membership.  Since you can come any day we’re open, we don’t offer make-ups for missed meetings.

Club Descriptions

Our clubs follow a constructivist approach to learning. In the constructivist classroom, learning objectives are student-centered, and students explore, solve problems, and ask questions. The instructor acts as a guide who provides learning experiences that will challenge students. We provide scaffolding, to enable children to solve tasks or achieve goals that would be beyond their unassisted efforts. Students are able to explore their Zone of Proximal Development (the difference between what they know and what they do not know) to construct new learning and build critical thinking skills.

  • Block Building – Kids can free-build or join in weekly challenges with our large collection of LEGO bricks, wooden blocks, and other building toys. This club gives kids an opportunity to be social while learning basic engineering skills.
  • Coding – Depending on reading ability and skill, students will learn how to code with Scratch, Java, Lua, and Python. Kids who don’t yet have strong reading skills will learn coding fundamentals using symbol-based activities. For this club, students work at their own pace with instructor guidance and support.
  • Minecraft – Students will participate in weekly build challenges, Redstone walkthroughs, and fun mini-games. Most kids use the Java edition of Minecraft for this club. We can support the Bedrock edition, but students using that version won’t be able to access the private server. This is a social club where kids will have an opportunity to improve their story-telling and spatial reasoning skills. We use elements of physics and engineering in this club.
  • Robotics –  Kids will learn how to program, and even build, a variety of robots. They will be able to select from the following robots based on their reading and skill level: Cue, Dash, Dot, LEGO Mindstorm, LEGO WeDo, Ozobot Bit, Ozobot Evo. For this club, students will typically work at their own pace with instructor guidance and support. They can use pre-made instructions for building and coding, or they can explore their own interests.
  • STEAM – Kids will do a variety of activities centered around science, technology, engineering, arts, and math. We’ll do different activities each week, like making slime, creating some art, planning and building invention prototypes, and much more. Students will be given basic instructions for each activity, and then encouraged to experiment as a group.
  • YouTube Stars – Future YouTube Stars will learn how to plan, rehearse, record, edit, and publish videos for YouTube. Instructors will encourage kids to plan their projects and provide basic instruction on how to use the software and hardware. Each month we will work on a different area of focus:
    • January, April, July, October – Gaming Videos
    • February, May, August, November – Animation
    • March, June, September, December – Non-computer Videos (How-to, toy review, unboxing, skit, etc…)

A USB headset is required for Coder Kids Club (grades 3+) at all times and YouTube Stars when we work on Gaming Videos (Jan/Apr/Jul/Oct). This is the headset we recommend: https://amzn.to/3mj7sHK
