Electronic Game Design:  Platform Games (ages 8-14)
Sure, your child PLAYS video games, but are they ready to CREATE their very own platform game?  A platform game is a side-scrolling, Mario-type game where students program characters and a two-dimensional obstacle course.  They attempt to avoid or overcome enemies and reach an end goal on multiple levels.  At the end of the class, students will be sent a copy of the game they create!  

3-D Printing:  Superheroes to the Rescue (ages 8-14)
Ready to design the next big superhero?  Here is your chance to bring their design to life!  3-D printers are one of the most widely applicable and fun inventions on the tech scene today!  During class, you will explore the basic concepts of 3-D printing and computer-aided design, or CAD, to design and create our very own 3-D printed superhero!  Students will take their hand drawn design and learn how to extrude it into a 3-D model that can then be modified to be printed in 3-D.  Engineering for Kids will 3-D print the model your child designs during class, label it with their name on it and deliver all of them to the Recreation Center for pick up!
