Becoming an artist and scientist in a global community.

Students grab your passports, it’s time to set sail on a global STEM adventure! We will be jet-setting off to Europe from the comfort of the Gorton Center in Lake Forest with our Travel Coordinator Ms Riley Anderson, Fine Arts teacher Ms.Elizabeth Young and our Mad Scientist Mr Oliver Sala, as we collect a passport stamp each day from a different country.

Get ready to take a ride on the tube in London and meet Banksy then backpack through Europe where we can learn all about Geography. Whether we are exploring the Guilds or 17th century art Dutch artist, Johannes Vermeer, or rooming through Italy with Amedeo Modigliani and Leonardo da Vinci the fun never ends!

We will be traveling through Germany in our very own time machine where we meet Albert Einstein and Hans Hoffman where we will learn all about the theory of relativity and Abstract expressionism, Modern art. Then off to take the Orient Express where we will spend the remainder of our time in France with the Post-Impressionist. Ages 5 – 12.

Extended care is available from 8am – 5pm! (Additional $175)
