Middle School

Engineering Challenges

Instructors: John Parker, Steve Howard and Sam Kell

Immerse yourself in hands-on engineering design and problem-solving activities. You'll work in teams and on your own identifying real-world problems and pitching solutions. You'll also take a number of field trips to on-campus labs, where you'll hear from working researchers and scientists in STEM fields. Explore engineering principles by developing computer-generated designs and building prototypes. For example, learn about structural design and buoyancy by building a floating bridge or about flight and force by using walk-along gliders. Session will culminate with presentation of ideas to classmates, family and friends.
