Is it Fall Break already?
If you are completely caught off guard with Fall Break already here – worry no more. We’ve got a great solution to keep your kiddos entertained. It’s fun, engaging, and educational – and most likely, will fit your schedule.
What is it?
Engineering for Kids Fall Break Camps. It’s art, engineering and everything in-between. Kids will build, create, innovate and collaborate with other kids. A team of engineers started Engineering for Kids a year ago and has since been blasting off, building, creating, making, and engineering with hundreds of kids in our area.
Instructors care deeply about exciting kids about Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) and doing it in a deliberate way. They have a laser focus on two things: 1) encouraging each kid to develop a strong STEM identity – which is helping kids believe that they are capable of learning Math and Science; and 2) helping kids develop a skill set to embrace hard subjects like Math and Science. This skill set is perseverance, to not give up when things get difficult, innovating and thinking critically about how to solve problems, and confidence to see things through.
In Engineering for Kids programs, kids are presented with hands-on engineering projects, video game design classes, robotics and demonstrations to practice using the Engineering Design Process – which is a process for developing solutions to relevant and real problems.
The best part of Engineering for Kids programs is that the kids are having so much fun building life-sized bridges and machines, tinkering with circuits and LEDs, launching bottle rockets and using real tools and advanced technology – that they don’t even notice how much they are learning. Math and Science are simply tools used in making their creations come alive or successfully address an engineering challenge.
What will kids do in Engineering Camp?
Each Day of Fall Break at Engineering for Kids is different. Kids have a choice of Engineering activities from Electrical Circuitry (Makey-Makey, circuitry projects, etc.), Rocketry (bottle rockets), Mechanical building (pumpkin chunking), Computer Programming for kids (Scratch), and playing with robotics (EV3 Mindstorms.) No need for experience, all kids will have a great time learning about how Science, Technology, Engineering and Math play in our world!
Fall Break Engineering Camps are available each week-day from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. starting October 13 through October 31st. Families can choose between one and five days, and extended care is also available (starting as early as 7:30 a.m. and ending at 5:30 p.m.)
