Playful Playgrounds: The Engineering of Simple Machines for Junior Engineers!

  • Starts Aug 19
  • 275 Canadian dollars
  • Serratus Movement Center

Service Description

In this camp, students will become mechanical engineers that have been hired to design the ultimate playground in their community. Playgrounds are packed full of simple machines such as levers, wheels and axles, inclined planes, and pulleys. In these lessons students will learn about the simple machines they encounter every day at the playground, while advancing their literacy skills through a variety of read alouds. They will tackle fun and engaging challenges while using the EFK Engineering Design Process. We can’t wait to play! This camp is geared for engineers aged 5-7, with activities that can be scaled in difficulty to suit student interest. We are excited to be partnering with Serratus Movement Centre to offer half a day featuring fun STEM-based camp activities, and half a day on the parkour gym with SMC’s coaches! Camp runs Monday-Thursday 9:00am-4:00pm with free early drop off at 8:30am and late pick-up to 4:30pm. Campers interested only in parkour are encouraged to join the SMC camp instead- please contact Serratus Movement Centre directly. Half day options are also available for campers who are only interested in the engineering part of the day. Please email for more information. Snacks and water are always available, but campers must bring their own nut-free lunch.
