Engineering for Kids

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!


Winter Weekend Workshops

Weekend Workshops – Jr. Electronic Game Design: Space       Ages 4 – 7
Embark on 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.

Weekend Workshops – App Electronic Game Design: Pizza Delivery     Ages 8 – 12
Papa’s Pizzeria is the busiest it has ever been. In Electronic Game Design: Pizza Delivery, we will create our own version of a platform game that will require players to collect ingredients, make pizza and serve all of the hungry customers. We will use the Engineering Design Process to create a storyboard to outline the rules of play and characters for our game. Then, we will use Clickteam Fusion 2.5® to bring our storyboard to life with programming. At the end of the class, everyone takes home a working Windows compatible game.

Weekend Workshops – Jr Environmental Engineering                                   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 process 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.

Weekend Workshops – App Environmental Engineering                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 clean up after an oil spill.

Spring Weekend Workshops

Jr Chemical Engineering: Crazy Concoctions                                    Ages 4 – 7

The Junior Chemical Engineering classes introduce our youngest engineers to fundamental concepts of solids, liquids, and solutions. Students investigate the properties of several crazy concoctions and make their own samples of bubbles, play dough, flub, and more.
 
Apprentice Chemical Engineering: Mix it Up                                     Ages 8 – 12
During the Chemical Engineering classes, students use the Engineering Design Process to design, create, test, and refine various mixtures and solutions with different chemical properties. They develop solutions to clean up an oil spill, synthesize their own rocket fuel, and investigate the secrets behind color pigmentation.
 
Jr Industrial Engineering: Fun Factory                                                 Ages 4 – 7
The Junior Industrial Engineering classes introduce our youngest engineers to fundamental concepts of simple machinery, cooperative building, and the assembly line process. Through open and focused exploration, students explore and construct simple machines and then use an assembly line process to produce a delicious treat!
 
Apprentice Industrial Engineering: A-Line Production                       Ages 8 – 12
During the Industrial Engineering classes, students use the Engineering Design Process to design, create, test, and refine efficient systems for production. Students explore foundational concepts of industrial engineering such as: assembly lines, safety, stamping, sorting and distributing materials. Students see just how fun and creative industrial engineering can be as they create their own ice cream factory and 3-D copies of designs.
