In our After School Programs at EDS, children are happy socializing, playing games, doing art projects, running around the playground, and getting a jumpstart on homework! We also have many new teachers working in our After School program this year—including a new director! Check out all of the fun things we have been doing lately!

Mary Beth Knauss, Director of Enrichment, is excited to announce a new enrichment opportunity for some of our older EDS students. This fall EDS will participate for the first time ever in a SumoBot League! SumoBot is competitive full-contact robotic wrestling where we will pit warrior against warrior in an autonomous match of wits, mass, and acceleration. SumoBots are fully autonomous vehicles that must conform to strict design requirements. The creation of a winning SumoBot exposes participants to the full range of STEM education and creative problem solving. Please see the After School Enrichment page of our website for more information.
