Luke Han Science Mind Ashburn

Luke Han
Science Mind of the Month- January Ashburn

January’s science mind of the month, Luke Han, is a HUGE fan of big tires. Luke, age 7, has been attending Science Cosmos since 2015 and he learned very quickly that, “big wheels make things go faster.” A few observations during his intermediate STEM course were more than enough to instill a need for speed in Luke.   

Luke says his favorite project was the “power car” in Intermediate STEM because, “it moves far by itself and has big wheels”. One of the activities associated with the power car involves having it pull a “load” on a sled of built of legos. Larger wheels allowed the power car travel up steeper hills while carrying a bigger load. Luke’s parents bring Luke to Science Cosmos classes because, “he loves Legos, math and science”. In the future Luke hopes to build Robots that can move. We can’t wait to see what Luke creates when he gets to our NxT – Lego Mindstorms courses!

Superhero Loving [Future Batgirl] Science Mind – She IS really SUPER

Ella Burks

Science Mind of the Month- December Ashburn

December’s Science Mind of the month embodies many of the qualities of any classic superhero: independence, resourcefulness and kindness. Heroic neutron Ella Burks says that if she could assist any superhero for a day, “it would be DC Comic’s Batgirl! I want to help her catch bad people!”. There aren’t any bad guys to catch at Science Cosmos, but Ella channels her inner super hero as she assists other builders in looking for pieces and assembling hard to construct projects.

Ella joined the ranks of Science Cosmos this past summer and she loves Legos almost as much as she loves her tiny Yorkshire terrier, Gertie. Ella has spent the last several months learning how pulleys, axles, and gears can be combined to create the fun animal themed Robots that comprise the Lego WeDo curriculum. Ella knows exactly which Lego components she needs and can assemble them with ease and confidence.

So what does a minute superhero like Ella get out of her Science Cosmos classes? Ella’s mom says, “Science Cosmos has nurtured her creativity, problem solving skills, and has helped her follow step by step instructions. Ella’s mom also hopes that Ella, “can excel further into more advanced classes”. With Ella’s competence and enthusiasm, we are sure she will go far!

Phil Zourzoukis

Science Mind of the Month – November Ashburn

Phil Zourzoukis loves Star Wars, and you guessed it, Legos. On Saturday afternoons at Science Cosmos you can usually find Phil enthusiastically building Lego projects as mini-figure versions of Luke Skywalker and Han Solo look on. Phil joined Science Cosmos 2 years ago, and his parents confirm that Phil, “still anxiously looks forward to coming to class each time”. Phil is now working through the extended curriculum of WeDo-a series of extended building projects that require 2-5 weeks of building time and are modeled after real life machines including a tower crane and a forklift.

It was during the extended WeDo curriculum that Phil encountered his favorite project yet, the Carousel. Phil enjoyed the carousel, “because I could put one of my Lego people holding a light saber on it and it looked like he was fighting with his light saber as he went around and around.” Phil enjoys the building opportunities he gets at Science Cosmos and his parents appreciate the educational gains he makes while building. In his two years as a Science Mind, Phil’s parents say that, “[Phil] has really solidified his understanding of basic engineering and technical skills”. One day Phil plans to put his skills to work as a scientist and an engineer. With his boundless creativity we are sure he will go far!

Krish Behera


Science Mind of the Month- September Ashburn

Krish Behera, an independent and fun-loving neutron, is our Science Mind of the Month for September! Over the course of the last year Krish has explored physics and engineering principles as part of the Intermediate STEM curriculum.  Notable projects he has completed include the inclined plane and his favorite project, the trundle wheel. When asked why he likes coming to class Krish said, “I love to build Legos and I try to learn new Lego building skills so that I can build anything”. One day Krish hopes to put his lego building skills to work as a Lego engineer who creates new Lego robotics projects. One idea he has is to create a remote controlled Lego train. Krish’s parents bring Krish to Science Cosmos so, “he can learn new Lego Robotics techniques and build more advanced projects when he grows older. We look forward to many more great ideas from Krish in the future!

Simar Malhi


Science Mind of the Month- August Ashburn

Simar Malhi is a long time member of the Science Cosmos family and our Science Mind of the month for August! Simar started as a Neutron 2 years ago where she mastered the intermediate STEM and Pneumatics curriculum. Intermediate STEM taught her concepts of potential and kinetic energy and renewable energy sources. The Pneumatics curriculum included Simar’s favorite project, A scarecrow that moves via pressurized air.

More recently Simar has focused more on programming as she learned to control the NXT and Ev3. Simar faces even the most difficult programming challenges with cheerfulness and a smile. With this approach she has crafted Ev3 programs that detect and avoid obstacles. Her most recent challenges test her ability to program simultaneous tasks and integrate inputs from multiple sensors. Simar is a very talented 9 year old who enjoys programming and robotics. One day she hopes to turn this passion into a career as a NASA engineer.

A great resource for boys and girls who love to create

My child was at the summer camp at Science Cosmos. This is a great resource for boys and girls who love to create things with Lego, K-nex, Robotics, etc. Those are the activities that promote math skills. Learning how each piece fits together and seeing what they can make is a valuable challenge to the mind. >> MORE PARENT TESTIMONIALS

The beauty of the program is that kids don't even realize they are learning something

My 10 year old son is very fond of Legos. He loves to puts things together. Science Cosmos is the best place for kids to experiment with legos and get a wonderful opportunity to learn robotics programming which helps their thinking abilities.
The center is very well staffed and kids get individual attention in their building effort. Each age group kids have age appropriate and brain stimulating activities. The beauty of the program is that kids don't even realize they are learning something. The learn while playing and without being burdened. It's a place to learn while relaxing. I truly love this center.

I recommend it frequently to parents who have strong interests in STEM

My Son looks forward to going to class and also has fun interacting with all the other like-minded kids as they work on their projects and coursework. We have also sent him to summer camps here and he loved those as well.

I have been so impressed and happy with this program and I recommend it frequently to parents who have children who have strong interests in STEM. With the pace of advancements in technology, and with the limitations of school based offerings on these subjects, it's very difficult to keep a child engaged and growing without a supporting program like this. Thanks Science Cosmos!
