Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics are an integral part of today's curriculum. The Knights in the Classroom offer both half-day and full-day workshops exploring this curriculum in a variety of ways. These sessions are for all elementary grades with a focus on hands-on, experiential activities that connect to a variety of math and science strands that also happen to have historical significance!

## Half-Day Workshop

This 3-hour workshop is geared towards groups of up to 40 students. Teachers select 4 sessions from the list below and students rotate through each session having approximately half an hour at each activity. The presentation culminates with a historical martial arts demonstration featuring our instructors in full-armour doing battle. The science of battle is discussed and a question and answer period ends the event.
