Engineering for Kids Summer Camps - IN PERSON Register View Cart

At Engineering for Kids we believe that children are natural born engineers who have unlimited imaginations and unbridled enthusiasm.  We offer fun, hands-on learning for children ages 4 to 12.  our activities range from building flashlights and rockets to programming video games and robots.  The variety of programming is extraordinary!  

Medieval Mayhem (8-12 years)
In medieval times, there were a huge number of engineering innovations.  Crossbows, drawbridges, towers, cranes, the compass, and more were invented during those times.  The lands then were ruled by feudal courts in a castle, with each castle having a great deal of land around it that was ruled by the lords and ladies of the castle.  Because owning land meant more power, many lords and ladies went to battle with other lords and ladies, trying to take their castle and control their land.  This led to many incredible devices being engineered, such as catapults.  Students will be split into groups forming their own feudal court of lords and ladies.  They will try to beat out the other teams in carious challenges to show their prowess and be crowned kings and queens of the land with the engineering for Kids Crown.

Sail the Seas (ages 8-12 years)
Avast, me maties!  Jump on board and join the crew to work together to explore the every-day engineering challenges that pirates were once faced with.  During this week, students will explore the ideas of buoyancy and surface area as they design their pirate ships, the sails for their ships, and a system to retrieve sunken treasures!  So what do you say; Are ye' ready to sail the seas?

Jr. Aerospace - Taking to the Skies (ages 4-7 years)
Aerospace engineering is one fo the newest disciplines of engineering, facilitated by the growth of the aviation industry in the late 1800s and early 1900s Aerospace engineers are responsible for the design of aircraft and the subsequent assembly or construction process. Aerospace engineering can also be further broken down into two separate branches: aeronautical engineering, which deals with the design of near-atmosphere aircraft, and astronautical engineering, which involves exo-atmosphere spacecraft.

Jr. Mechanical Engineering - Widgets and Gadgets (ages 4-7 years)
The Junior Mechanical Engineering program introduces our youngest engineers to fundamental concepts of energy, materials, and movement.  Through open and focused exploration, students explore and construct their own roller coasters, catapults, cars and more.

Theme Park Mania - Minecraft (ages 8-12 years)
This camp will have students build their very own Minecraft amusement parks!  Students will have to navigate a number of engineering and teamwork challenges to do so.  Students will draft blueprints and plans for their parks on paper before beginning to create it in Minecraft to make it as much like the process of designing a real amusement park as possible.

App Hardware Engineering - Get Wired with Makey Makey (ages 8-12 years)
Imagine designing a piano using celery or creating a custom digital training program.  Now, envision playing video games using just your body, a bit of wire and your own imagination.  In our hardware engineering program, students engineer their own customized video games controllers using a Makey Makey device and materials that can be found in just about any kitchen.  Through application of circuitry, acoustical engineering and video game design, students discover new ways to interact with technology, all while creating unique designs in a fun collaborative environment.
