Service Description

6 weeks of hands-on engineering! Students will explore various topics in science, as well as mechanical, aerospace, and geologic engineering as they investigate the technology and innovation that is required for aerospace engineers to be able to, one day, safely transport human beings to the surface of Mars. This series is sure to spark children’s imagination and ignite their curiosity about the future of Mars exploration. Classes are divided into Junior Engineers (ages 4-7) running from 6pm to 7pm, and Apprentice Engineers (ages 8-11) running from 7pm to 8pm. Junior Engineers will be inspired by Mars-themed children’s literature for each engineering challenge, and Apprentice Engineers have a greater focus on inventing their own solutions using the Engineering Design Process. All ages engage in exciting, hands-on STEM challenges with real-world connections to NASA and aerospace engineering. JUNIOR ACTIVITIES: November 8 - Hydroponics: grow a plant without soil November 15 - Curiosity: build a pasta version of the Mars Rover Curiosity November 22 - Exploring Core Sample: discover what rock samples tell us about their environment November 29 - Moonshot: build and test a lunar lander vehicle on multiple terrains December 6 - You Are Going: invent a planet habitat and craft a structure for astronauts to live in December 13 - Straw Rockets: build and launch miniature rockets using just air APPRENTICE ACTIVITIES: November 8 - Super Satellites: design a model satellite and test its strength November 15 - Ingenuity: build mini working helicopters based on a the Mars copter Ingenuity November 22 - Magnetic Mania: create a tool to locate magnetic fields November 29 - Hydration Filtration + Oxygen Station Filtration: design a test devices to filter water and air December 6 - Commanding the Landing: work in teams to design, build, and test a device that can drop a payload into a crater December 13 - Lift Off: chemically engineer rocket propellant for a mini rocket launch You only pay for the classes you attend!
