Computer Science Immersion programs in BPS provide a deeper dive into computer science. The computer science Immersion program provides opportunities for students to learn computer science in the context of other subject areas, exemplifying computer science’s vast impact on all disciplines.
Our teachers integrate elements of science, technology, engineering, art, and math across the curriculum. In addition we host two STEAM Activity Days each year to offer special opportunities to students. We value our partnerships with Richardson Nature Center, Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge, and Science From Scientists.
The focus of this program is to provide on-site child care and enrichment opportunities for students, before and after school hours. Students build friendships, independence, and confidence through a variety of activities. The staff facilitates a warm and secure environment for students. Kids’ SAFARI is a fee-based program that is open from 6:30 - 8:30 a.m. and 3 - 6 p.m.
