Engineering for Kids
Junior Mechanical Engineering: Let’s Make Toys (grades 1-3)
The Junior Mechanical Engineering: Let’s Make Toys program introduces our youngest engineers to fundamental concepts of energy, materials, and movement. Students explore and construct six different toys throughout this unit, including spinners, magical boomerang cans, wind-up whirligigs, and more.
Mechanical Engineering (grades 4-5)
During the Mechanical Engineering program, students use the Engineering Design Process to design, create, test, and refine a variety of machines and mechanical systems. Students learn basics of fluid mechanics, simple machines, and other design and engineering concepts while constructing roller coasters, egg-drop vehicles, marble runs and more!
Electronic Game Design (grades 6-8)
Video games are everywhere and in almost every form you can imagine. In the Electronic Game Design: Invader Defense program, we will create our own version of an invader defense game where we will defend against an invasion. 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 program, everyone takes home a working Windows-compatible game (Clickteam Fusion 2.5® does not support Mac or Android operating systems).
