2018 Engineering For Kids Spring Sessions

Engineering For Kids brings science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), to kids ages 4 to 14 in a fun and challenging way through classes, camps, clubs, and parties. We are proud to inspire children to build on their natural curiosity by teaching engineering concepts through hands-on learning and development of their problem solving skills. Engineering is, after all, one of the fastest growing industries in the world!

All of our classes align with the following National Standards for STEM education: Common Core Math, Next Generation Science, ITEEA(International Technology and Engineering Educators Association), STL(Standards of Technological Literacy), NSES(National Science Education Standards), and NCTM(National Council for Teachers of Mathematics).

Did You Know?

  • Eight graders with and interest in STEM education are 3x more likely to pursue degrees in those careers.
  • STEM related jobs are expected to grow by 17% from 2008-2018, while non-stem jobs are only expected to grow by 9.8%.
  • Engineering ranks 11th out of 19 in a list of careers teen students are familiar with.
  • By simply exposing children to engineering at a younger age they are 2x as likely to be interested in engineering as a career.

Engineering of Cities: During the Civil Engineering classes, students use the Engineering Design Process to design, create, test and improve several different types of bridge, tower and skyscraper designs and discover how the forces of tension, compression, bending, torsion, and shear are distributed throughout and affect their structures.

Mechanical Engineering: During the Mechanical Engineering unit, students use the Engineering Design Process to design, build, test, and improve a variety of machines and mechanical systems.  Students learn basics of energy, traction, aerodynamics, and durability while constructing roller coasters, eggstreme defense vehicles, and an incredibly fast air-powered custom dragster.

Chemical Engineering: 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 will synthesize their own rocket fuel, investigative the secrets behind color pigmentation, explore the properties of some ooey gooey mixtures and make a delicious snack!
