ENG101 - Juniors STEM Variety (4-7 years) Series A - Tuesdays at 4pm. Live
Our STEM extracurricular activities are coming to you! Kids experience our hands-on engineering program from the comfort of their home. All supplies for the 8 week program are shipped right to you. Our instructors guide the kids real-time through the program. The eight activities are: Chemical Engineering: Bubble bliss + Wacky Wands: Students will explore properties of a liquid during this Bouncing Bubbles lesson. They will experiment concocting two different bubble solutions to determine which one produces stronger bubbles. Explore how design of the bubble wand affects the bubble size and shape. Aerospace Engineering: Parachutes: Students will have to engineer a functional parachute for a test jumper that must descend gracefully after being dropped from a tall height. After the testing phase, which is an important part of the Engineering Design Process, students will be able to improve upon their design. Electrical Engineering: Greetings: Students learn how to create a flat conductive circuit path with a LED light feature. Environmental Engineering: Sun painting: Sun printing, or cyanotype, will give students the opportunity to closely examine an object in detail, as the object being printed leaves a direct contact silhouette on the specially-formulated sun print paper. Civil Engineering: Bridges: The Note Card Bridge activity will challenge students to construct a bridge out of a normally flexible material and create a navigable span. Chemical Engineering: Slime: Students will learn about the chemical properties of slime and make their own. They will learn about conductivity and test the different polymers. Marine Engineering: Paddleboats: Students explore kinetic and potential energy and create paddleboats that can travel across a tub of water Aerospace Engineering: Helicopters: Students will construct model helicopters. They will explore how forces such as thrust and lift help helicopters maneuver. Online, real-time classes will be held from 4-4:45 pm on Tuesdays Join us anytime - classes carry into the new year!
