Program Offering Details

Dino Discovery

Take an adventure back to the Jurassic Era where we will learn about dinosaurs who roamed the Earth millions of years ago. Uncover fascinating facts, build a dinosaur replica, and have an archaeological dig as you explore your paleontological skills. In Dinosaur Discovery, you will become a paleontologist faster than Ornithomimids ran from a TRex!.

Chess

The Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis continues its ongoing partnership with Mallinckrodt this year. Instructors from the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis provide chess classes that teach fundamental chess elements in addition to promoting educational values that can be learned through chess. Classes will focus on chess fundamentals while also incorporating lessons on critical thinking, planning and logic.

Yoga

Mallinckrodt moms, Amy Raymond & Kate Stewart, will guide students through asanas (postures), breathing exercises, meditation and games. Through yoga children will harness their powers of concentration, develop a healthy body awareness, increase confidence and improve coordination. They’ll learn breath awareness, working with others and discover how we’re all connected.

Green Thumb Club

Catch an insect, grow a terrarium, and save the earth…all while learning about nature and the world around us through exciting expeditions, science, and environmental exploration. Our Green Thumb Club will ignite your child’s passion for nature, recycling, and learning about the earth through educational activities and science investigations. It’s time to join the Green Thumb Club!

Mad Science: Fun Physics

Have fun with physics and Mad Science! Fly through flight and discover the four forces that affect flight. Make and test plane designs to see these forces in action. Act like junior architects and engineers! Test out shapes for strength and build a bridge. Create a whirlwind with a vortex generator. Make liquids turn into solids and watch objects disappear as you uncover the science of magic. Feel the pull of precession with the bike wheel gyroscope and strike the perfect balance with the Gravity Game kit. Investigate conductors, insulators, and other elements in the world of circuit electricity.
