IntelliScience Training Institute’s STEM based course is especially designed for grade 4 students and above in San Jose, CA. We will provide students the opportunity to explore their interest in various disciplines of engineering such as basic electronics and robotics.
Courses will be assigned according to student grade and interest. Depending on grade, students will learn how to conduct experiments, collect data, analyze it, and present it as lab report.
We Offer Courses in the Following Areas
Project CLEA -- CONTEMPORARY LABORATORY EXPERIENCES IN ASTRONOMY -- develops laboratory exercises that illustrate modern astronomical techniques using digital data and color images. They are suitable for high school and college classes at all levels, but come with defaults set for use in introductory astronomy classes for non-science majors. Typical projects include 1) The Revolution of the Moons of Jupiter 2) Rotation of Mercury by Doppler Effect 3) The period of Rotation of the Sun etc.
