Summer is a great time for students to learn a new skill, focus on a talent, make new friends or get an introduction of the grade ahead. ISLAND PACIFIC ACADEMY’s 12th Annual Summer Enrichment Program offers a variety of classes. Class size is limited to ensure students get the most out of their summer experience.
This summer’s STEM education program features a class Robo Gripp’ n Tech. In this class students in grades 5-8 will create different types of robotic arms, hands, and claws and practice grabbing and moving several different objects. Mr.Bailey, our Robotics Instructor, also incorporates Hawaiian values: akamai – intellect, paʻahana – work hard, laulima – work together, and hoʻokela – striving to do oneʻs best; into the curriculum.
In Cooking Around the World, younger children have the opportunity to learn about different cultures while preparing new foods from these countries. Each student will leave the program with their own cookbook that they have created.
Students also have fun in our Summer Recreational Academy. This year’s theme is traveling through time and space. Students explored caveman and dinosaurs this week in different activities.
