PM Enrichment
Jr. Industrial Engineering:  Fun Factory (ages 4-7)
The Junior Industrial Engineering classes introduce our youngest engineers to fundamental concepts of simple machinery, cooperative building, and the assembly line process. Through open and focused exploration, students explore and construct simple machines and then use an assembly line process to produce a delicious treat!

Saturday Workshops
Electronic Game Design:  Invader Defense - Alien Invasion (ages 8-12)
Video games are everywhere and in almost every form you can imagine!  In Electronic game Design:  Invader Defense, we will create our own version of an invader defense game set in space where we will defend our home planet against an alien 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 class, everyone takes home a working Windows-compatible game.
