Engineering Weekend Workshops: Engineering for Kids
Note: This program will follow all State & CDC guidelines regarding current Covid-19 Precautions.
At Engineering for Kids, we believe that children are natural born engineers who have unlimited imaginations and unbridled enthusiasm. We offer fun, hands-on learning for children ages 4 to 12. Our activities range from building flashlights and rockets to programming video games and robots. The variety of programming is extraordinary!
Jr. Mechanical Engineering: Widgets & Gadgets: (Ages 4-7)
This program introduces our youngest engineers to fundamental concepts of energy, materials, and movement. Through open and focused exploration, students will explore and construct their own roller coasters, catapults, cars, and more.
Jr. Chemical Engineering: Crazy Concoctions: (Ages 4-7)
This program introduces our youngest engineers to fundamental concepts of solids, liquids, and solutions. Students will investigate the properties of several crazy concoctions and make their own samples of bubbles, play dough, flub, and more.
Apprentice Mechanical Engineering: Master Machines: (Ages 8-14)
During the Mechanical Engineering program, students use the Engineering Design Process to design, create, test, and refine a variety of machines and mechanical systems. Students learn basics of fluid mechanics, simple machines, and other design and engineering concepts while constructing roller coasters, egg drop vehicles, and an incredibly fast air powered dragster they will keep at the end of the program.
Apprentice Chemical Engineering: Mix it Up: (Ages 8-14)
During our Chemical Engineering program, students use the Engineering Design Process to design, create, test, and refine various mixtures and solutions with different chemical properties. They will develop solutions to clean up an oil spill, synthesize their own rocket fuel, and investigate the secrets behind color pigmentation.
