1:30 PM - 3:00 PM    Engineering for Kids - Winter/Spring Weekend Workshops - Jr. Environmental: Thinking Green
Please note: During the February and May in-person sessions, CDC and State guidelines regarding masks and social distancing will be followed.Jr. Space Pioneers - VIRTUAL (Ages 4-7):Embark on a fun journey to space with Scratch! Send an astronaut to the moon and defend your moon base from space rocks. Learn how to use Scratch to create and program sprites, backdrops and basic scripts. Create a new program each day, leave with evidence of your wild space adventure, and be inspired to explore the universe of programming as a Space Pioneer. 3D Printing: Minecraft Creations - VIRTUAL (Ages 8-12):3-D printing and Minecraft both represent boundless opportunity for creating even our wildest of ideas! In 3-D Printing: Minecraft Creations, students will explore the basic concepts of 3-D printing and computer-aided design, or CAD, to bring their most awesome Minecraft creation to life! Students will take their Minecraft design out of the world of Minecraft and learn how to extrude it into a 3-D model that can then be modified to be printed in 3-D. Jr. Environmental: Thinking Green (Ages 4-7):Are you ready to get down and dirty searching for solutions to some of our biggest environmental problems? In Junior Environmental, students ponder some truly "hot" environmental issues. Students in this class save endangered animals, help plants grow and create protection from the sun's heat. By investigating natural processes like erosion, animal adaptations, and plant growth, we discover ways that we as engineers can be inspired by the world around us to take on all sorts of challenges. Environmental Engineering: Go Green (Ages 8-12):During the Environmental Engineering classes, students use the Engineering Design Process to design, create, test, and refine basic solutions related to alternative energy and environmental issues. They learn principles behind crafting efficient wind-powered machines and discover how those machines can be used to help reduce the use of fossil fuels. During the culminating project, students test different materials to discover which ones most effectively cleanup after an oil spill. Jr. Mechanical Engineering: Widgets and Gadgets with Kit - VIRTUAL (Ages 4-7):The Junior Mechanical Engineering classes introduce our youngest engineers to fundamental concepts of energy, materials, and movement. Through open and focused exploration, students explore and construct their own rollercoasters, catapults, cars and more. Electronic Game Design: Ninja Attack! - VIRTUAL (Ages 8-12)Video games are everywhere and in almost every form you can imagine! In Electronic Game Design: Ninja Attack! we will create our own version of a Platform game set in a dojo that we will defend from a ninja attack. We will use the Engineering Design Process to create a storyboard to outline the rules of play and characters for our game. Jr. Scratch & Makey Makey: Musical Adventures (Ages 4-7):When your favorite song comes on the radio do you sit quietly or do you dance around and play the air drum solo? In Musical Adventures with Scratch and Makey Makey, we are going to explore how different sounds are created and will create our own interpretations of common musical instruments like drums, piano, guitar, and even a recorder. We will also create our very own dancing program, all through the use of Makey Makey and Scratch to bring our music to life! The last day will end with a bang, or at least a really great mini concert. Hardware Engineering: Get Wired with Makey Makey (Ages 8-12)Imagine designing a piano using celery or creating a custom digital training program. Now, envision playing video games using your body, a bit of wire and your own imagination. In our hardware engineering program, students engineer their own customized video game controllers using a Makey Makey device and materials that can be found in just about any kitchen. Through application of circuitry, acoustical engineering and video game design, students discover new ways to interact with technology, all while creating unique designs in a fun collaborative environment.
