Ages 8-12 years entering grades 3-6 in the Fall Teacher: Kim Morchower
Students will be able to:
Understand basic principles of engineering and structure design
Apply principles to design
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.
