For ages 8–12 years entering 3–6 in the Fall

Students will be able to:

  • Understand basic principles of engineering and structure design
  • Apply principle to design
  • Use technology to assist in the learning process
  • Take a creative, systematic approach to solving a problem
  • Use everyday materials in new and unusual ways
  • Learn through a kinesthetic “hands-on” approach

Does your child like to build and create? Do they enjoy drawing and designing structures? In this class students will have the opportunity to explore a variety of types of engineering. We will use the engineering design process to investigate mechanical, civil, and aerospace engineering. Students will learn the basic principles of engineering and structure design through readings, demonstrations, hands-on activities and challenges. They will have the opportunity to apply their learning by planning, designing, and building various structures and vehicles.
