Jr. Environmental Engineering: 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. Apprentice 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.

During the culminating project, students test different materials to discover which ones most effectively cleanup after an oil spill. Jr. Civil Engineering: Fun Foundations (Ages 4-7):Building a house to withstand the Big, Bad Wolf is where the fun begins in Junior Civil Engineering. This class is centered on exploring the concepts of building and construction through hands-on exploration and design.

Apprentice Civil Engineering: Building Up (Ages 8-12):During the Civil Engineering classes, students use the Engineering Design Process to design, create, test, and refine a balsa wood bridge designed to withstand the greatest force.
