Each lab class ends with a Science Bowl style buzzer round to reinforce what is learned in a fun way. Students gain an understanding of what DNA is, how DNA science is used in many ways while learning a bit of chemistry, math, and even some physics. Biotech is a blend of all of the STEM subjects, making this great for anyone interested in science.

Fifth Grade Math is Cool Club

If you graph the positive values in quadrant one for the function of z, where two is raised to the power of z, the x-axis represents time, and the y-axis represents fun and learning, you will have an accurate graphical representation of the Fifth Grade Math Club. The students come together once a week to push the perimeter of their math skills, expand the area of their logical thinking, and most importantly, exponentially increase the volume of their confidence and enjoyment of math. All of this happens under the supreme tutelage of Dave Sauntry (an Eton parent), who is graciously donating his time to help the fifth grade students sail into new horizons. Pete Kashevarof (an Eton teacher) is around, bearing witness to the fractals and golden ratios that the students explore with Mr. Sauntry.

Fifth through Eighth Grade

Board Game Club

When thinking of board games, many go back to childhood days of playing Monopoly, Sorry!, Risk, and many others. These games are still popular, but it is quite remarkable how far the board game industry has come in the last few decades. Board games are rich in strategy, probability, reading comprehension, storylines, teamwork, and they fit all of this into a cardboard box!

To celebrate and enjoy these delightful games, students from fifth to eighth grade gather on Monday afternoons for Board Game Club. The students generally learn a new game each week, and then spend the rest of the time playing and bonding with fellow students.

Days: Mondays
Time: 3:30-5:30 p.m.
Location: Casa III
Cost: $10.00/hour (Charges appear and are billed as Clubhouse)
