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!


Spring Session 1


Weekend Workshops – Jr Civil Engineering: Fun Foundation                                     Ages 4 – 7 Years
Building a house to withstand the Big, Bad Wolf is where the fun begins in Junior Civil. This class is centered on exploring the concepts of building and construction through hands-on exploration and design. Students explore the engineering behind skyscrapers, bridges, roads, and more in this fun and engaging experience.
 
Weekend Workshops – App Civil Engineering: Building Up                                         Ages 8 – 12 Years
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. They examine several different types of bridge designs and discover how the forces of tension, compression, bending, torsion, and shear are distributed throughout their structures.


Spring Session 2
 
Weekend Workshops – Jr Mechanical Engineering: Widgets and Gadgets                 Ages 4 – 7 Years
The Junior Mechanical Engineering classes introduce our youngest engineers to fundamental concepts of energy materials, and movement. Through open and focused exploration, students explore and construct their own roller coasters, catapults, cars and more.
 
Weekend Workshops – App Mechanical Engineering: Master Machines                   Ages 8 – 12 Years
During the Mechanical Engineering unit, students use the Engineering Design Process to design, create, test, and improve a variety of machines and mechanical systems. Students learn basics of energy, traction, aerodynamics, and durability while constructing roller coasters, extreme defense vehicles, and an incredibly fast air-powered custom dragster.
