ENG202- Masters STEM Variety (8-14 years) Series B - Thursdays at 5:15pm
Our STEM extracurricular activities are coming to you! Kids experience our hands-on engineering program from the comfort of their home. All supplies and instructional materials for the 8 week program are shipped right to you. Our instructors guide the kids real-time through the program. The eight activities are: Aerospace Engineering: Lunar lander: Students will learn about the importance of weight distribution in aircraft design. They will build their own custom “Lunar Lander” to protect their space cadets from being ejected from their space craft. Chemical Engineering: Lift off: The Lift Off Activity will focus on the chemical reactions that occur between two inert substances, water and calcium carbonate. Students will also design their own aerodynamic body gear for a small model rocket and test their unique chemical propellant in a multi-phase process. Electrical Engineering: LED Flashlights: Students build their own working flashlight. They learn about conducting and non conducting materials. Environmental Engineering: Recycling sorter: Students work to build a working design that will allow them to sort materials of different sizes, shapes, and weights Marine Engineering: Cartesian diver: Students will construct their own Cartesian diver in order to have a better understanding of buoyancy underwater. They will learn to equalize the buoyant force and the weight on their diver so that it is neutrally buoyant just under the surface of the water. Aerospace Engineering: Rocket launchers: Students engineer a functional rocket launcher! They learn how launch angles and mass affects the range of their rocket. Electrical Engineering: Variable resistors: Students will build a working circuit. The students will then test different pieces of lead to observe the positive and negative effects of the different lengths. Coding: Scratch video: What’s more fun than playing an interactive video game? Writing one! Video sensing allows students to design and program their own video games and then test them by interacting with the program via webcam. In this Scratch program, students work together to create their own games, art, or musical instruments while exploring coding foundations. Online, real-time classes are from 5:15-6pm on Thursdays Start any week! Classes continue into the new year!
