Magnus Chess Academy: Mondays 3:30-4:30, Cafeteria
Magnus Chess Academy (formerly Silver Knights) has been teaching chess in Fairfax County since 2008. Over that time period we’ve taught more than 30,000 students in after school clubs, before school clubs, and camps. They include kids who’ve won seventeen state championships and four national championships, but most of our students are beginners looking to learn a fun new game. That’s how all the champions start out too!

STEM Excel: Fridays 3:30-4:30, Cafeteria
STEM exCEL’s Electronics with Minecraft Redstone allows students to explore electronics in a virtual world with essentially infinite resources. Using Minecraft’s Redstone blocks, which act as wires on a breadboard, students can build constructs representing electrical circuits and simple computer projects that are built in the real world. This course is a great precursor to understand real circuitry, electronics and electrical theory. This course allows students to gain an understanding of how computers are processing commands as they move on to other computer science studies, and take home their Redstone creations at the end of the course.
