PM Enrichment

Jr. Civil Engineering - Fun Foundations (ages 4-7)
Civil engineering is one of the widest-reaching disciplines in the engineering field.  Civil engineers must work cooperatively with architects, local governments, citizens, and other engineers to successfully build large and small-scale projects.  Civil engineers use aspects of physics, mathematics, and computer technology to create plans and drawings that are used by different professionals to build structures.    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.

Saturday Workshops

Making Waves (ages 8-12)
Marine engineering has existed since the time of the earliest ships.  It has been called by other names, such as ocean engineering and marine mechanical engineering.  Engineers in this discipline deal primarily with designing and maintaining the moving parts located below-deck in ships.  With the advent of modern technology, marine engineers also oversee the design of other ship components, such as propellers, stabilizers, and rescue systems.  Marine engineering is also closely tied to naval architecture.  During the Marine Engineering classes, students use the Engineering Design Process to design, create, test and refine several types of marine based devices and vehicles.  Students construct working prototypes that teach and reinforce the concepts of above water transportation, underwater exploration, and harnessing the power of water.  They gain exposure to careers in naval, ocean, and marine engineering as well as naval architecture.
