Engineering For Kids

 

Engineering For Kids brings science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), to kids ages 5 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. Engineering is, after all, one of the fastest growing industries in the world!

 

Thanks to a generous STEM grant awarded by the General Motors Foundation, we are able to offer the same great Engineering For Kids programs at a lower fee of only $35!

Junior Scratch Video Sensing (Ages 5-7)

What’s more fun than playing an interactive video game? Writing one!  Video sensing allows students to design and program their own video games and then test them by interacting with the program via webcam. In this Scratch program, students work together to create their own games, art, and musical instruments while exploring coding foundations.

Mondays 6:15pm-7:15pm

Electronic Game Design: Invader Defense--Shark Attack! (Ages 8-14)

In Invader Defense: Shark Attack, we will use the engineering Design Process to create a storyboard and outline the rules of play 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, everyonet akes home a working Windows-compatible game!
