Engineering Weekend Workshops: Marine Engineering
This program is currently unavailable. Click here to view all of our current programs.
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!
Junior Marine Engineering: Ages 4 – 7
What causes something to sink or float? How can engineers help explore and protect the ocean below? These questions and more are all explored in Junior Marine. In this program, students explore the concepts of marine engineering and mechanics, harnessing the power of water, and discovering designs that help us make the impossible possible.
App Marine Engineering: Making Waves: Ages 8 – 14
During the Marine Engineering classes, students use the Engineering Design Process to design, create, test, and refine several types of marine based devices and vehicles. Students construct working prototypes that teach and reinforce the concepts of above water transportation, underwater exploration, and harnessing the power of water. They gain exposure to careers in naval, ocean, and marine engineering as well as naval architecture.
