  • Engineering for Kids STEM Club (Grades K-3)

    Engineering for Kids STEM Club Grades K-3 The Engineering for Kids STEM Club introduces students to a new hands-on lesson every week from various engineering disciplines. For each lesson students focus on developing 21st Century skills such as problem solving, critical thinking and peer collaboration. These life skills provide students with the confidence to approach challenges in their lives and realize that they can succeed in almost anything! Level Duration Location Session (4 weeks) Grades K-3 3:50 - 4:50 pm Shirley Hills - Room 209 Hilltop - Art Room $95 Session 1 1 Aerospace Engineering - Twirling Helicopters Students create a paper flyer that moves like the blades of a helicopter 2 Electrical Engineering - It's Magic! No, It's Static! Students create their own magic act using static electricity 3 Environmental Engineering - Anemometer Students make their own anemometer and will be able to define an anemometer as an instrument to measure wind speeds and its uses. 4 Mechanical Engineering - Ooze Diffuse Students learn about the concept of force using a fantastic oozing slime ball that they create Session 1 (4 classes) $95 Fridays, February 14 - March 13 (no class March 6) Shirley Hills Room 209 #2038-A20W Tuesdays, February 25 - March 17 Hilltop Art Room #2038-B20W Session 2 1 Computer Engineering - Coding Unplugged: My Robotic Friends Using a set of symbols in place of code, students will design algorithms to instruct a "robot" to stack cups in different patterns. Students will take turns participating as the robot, responding to the algorithm defined by their peers. 2 Mechanical Engineering - Spinner Students create a spinner toy and learn that a spinning object uses momentum, which keeps it moving 3 Industrial Engineering - Simple Machine Levers Students will learn about simple machines as tools to make work easier and learn about levers 4 Chemical Engineering - Lava Lamp Students will explore density and buoyancy while they make their own lava lamp Session 2 (4 classes) $95 Tuesdays, March 31 - April 21 Hilltop Art Room #2038-C20W Fridays, April 3 - 24 Shirley Hills Room 209 #2038-D20W
