Engineering for Kids - Fall Weekend Workshops
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!
Jr. Robotics Engineering: Adventure Stories (Ages 4-7)
This class is a perfect mixture of fun and learning, using LEGO®WeDo™ Robots. Using LEGO® bricks, students build a hungry alligator, a flying bird and a roaring lion. They also learn how to program and operate their creations using a laptop computer.
Software Engineering: Video Sensing (Ages 8-12)
What's more fun than playing an interactive video game? Writing one! Video sensing allows students to design and program their own video games and then test them by interacting with the program via webcam. In this Scratch program, students work together to create their own games, art, and musical instruments while exploring coding foundations. Get up and get moving with Engineering for Kids and Scratch: Video Sensing!
Jr. Engineering of Power & Energy (Ages 4-7)
In the Engineering of Power & Energy, join us as we look at ways to get things moving...no batteries required! In this camp, students explore the foundational concepts of potential and kinetic energy by building their very own toys. Additionally, students will explore natural power and energy sources such as falling water and the sun. Get ready for a shock in this energetic and engaging engineering experience!
The Engineering of Power & Energy (Ages 8-12)
Power and energy are what everything requires to move, turn on, light up, and make noise. In the Engineering of Power and Energy, students will break up into engineering teams and help each other to create unique ways to harness, manipulate, and use energy efficiently.
Please note: There is no class on Saturday, November 24th.
