Hardware Engineering - Get wired with Makey Makey. (Ages 8-14)
Imagine designing a piano using celery or creating a custom digital training program. Now, envision playing video games using just 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.
Electronic Game Design (Ages 8-14)
Ladies and gentlemen start your engines! On your mark, get set, GO! Kids are drawn to the excitement of a race. They hoot and holler in anticipation that the car they chose will cross the finish line first. We will use the Engineering Design Process to create a storyboard that will outline the rules of play and characters for our game based on the basic rules of racing.
Jr. Under Construction (Ages 4-7)
Construction: Put on your hard hat engineers and join us for our The Engineering of Cities! In this program, students work hard to apply their knowledge of construction to save the beach from erosion and build their very own city from the ground up. From roads and tunnels to buildings and skyscrapers, students discover that no job is too tough for an Engineering for Kids engineer!
Jr. Medieval Defense (Ages 4-7)
Do you have what it takes to defend your castle and maintain your family’s honor? If so, then don your armor and draw your sword for The Engineering of Medieval Times. In this program, students build their very own castle and then work to defend it by engineering cannons and catapults. Become a knight and join us on the question for glory and justice!
Please Note: If you sign-up your child/children for the morning session (9am-12pm) and the afternoon session (12:30-3:30pm) there will be adult supervision during the 1/2 hour lunch break between programs.
