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. LEGO Robotics: Amazing Mechanisms (Ages 4-7)
This class is a perfect mixture of fun and learning, using LEGO®WeDo™ Robots. Using LEGO® bricks, students build a dancing bird, a smart spinner and a drumming monkey. They also learn how to program and operate their creations using a laptop computer.
Apprentice Robotics: Da Vinci Design (Ages 8-12)
This LEGO® Robotics: Da Vinci Robots curriculum is designed to introduce students to the world of not only building, but also programming basic robots. The robots in this unit will approach some of the designs of Leonardo da Vinci, taking a unique perspective by applying robotics principles to the challenges da Vinci faced.
Jr. Aerospace Engineering: Taking to the Skies (Ages 4-7)
The Junior Aerospace Engineering classes introduce our youngest engineers to fundamental concepts of aircraft and spacecraft design. Through open and focused exploration, students explore and construct airplanes, rockets, helicopters, and more.
Apprentice Aerospace Engineering: Up, Up and Away (Ages 8-12)
During the Aerospace Engineering classes, students use the Engineering Design Process to design, create, test, and refine a variety of flying machines. They construct a shock absorbing system designed to protect two marshmallow astronauts in a lunar vehicle, create their own air-powered rockets, and assemble a model blimp that actually takes flight!
Please note: During the second Fall Session there is no class on December 1st (Thanksgiving weekend).
