Engineering for Kids

Children have a natural curiosity that lends itself to science, technology, math, and engineering. Engineering For Kids inspire kids ages 4 to 14 to build on their innate desire for answers by exploring engineering concepts in a fun, hands-on way. They offer programs designed to present kids with challenging yet accessible engineering activities from which they can learn and grow.
*All registration cancellations must be submitted in writing no later than 1 week prior to the start of the program. No credits or transfers will be processed less than 1 week before the date the program is scheduled to begin.*

The goal of this class is to introduce the students to the concept of what robotics is as well as give the students a chance to build and program their own robots. This class is a perfect mixture of fun and learning, using LEGO® WeDo™ education set. Students will build a variety of robots like an airplane rescue, a giant escape, and a sailboat storm. Students will also learn how to program and operate their creations using a laptop computer.

Join us in an apocalyptic future, one where the earth has been ravaged by a series of natural disasters. Each day, students rely on the engineering design process to solve a series of challenges such as building a city on a series of islands, escaping from a bunker on Mt. Everest, and even building a rocket to land on the moon! Through application of engineering principles, students solve numerous challenges as they make their virtual world of Minecraft a safe place for humanity once again.

The Robotics 101 camp, students will learn the basics of designing, programming, and controlling a fully functional robot. Using LEGO® EV3®, mathematical concepts, and engineering principles students will brainstorm, plan, test, and modify sequences of instructions to accomplish a given task. Students will also learn the sequence of communication between the robot, and the programmer by collecting and analyzing data using the robot's sensors.

Robo Battles curriculum is designed to introduce students to the world of not only building, but also programming basic robots. The challenge facing robotics engineers is that the robot knows only what is written into the program. The design of the robot must also be capable of performing the task at hand. In this unit, students will experience both the designing and programming roles of being a robotics engineer. The students will explore different ways in which a robot could be utilized to engage in various battle challenges in a less competitive environment. Lessons include, tug of war, sumo bots, tanks and more.

During this week of camp, students will take a comprehensive look at NASA’s landers and orbiters that are currently conducting important research on Mars. We will examine the anatomy of various orbiters and landers in order to gain a deeper understanding of how they assist in the work of NASA’s scientists and engineers. Students will learn about the technology and innovation that is required for aerospace engineers so we can, one day, safely transport human beings to the surface of Mars. Each day, classes will use the EFK’s Engineering Design Process to engage in exciting, hands-on STEM challenges with real-world connections to NASA and aerospace engineering.
