Engineering

Design, build, and program robots to complete in engineering challenges.

Challenge Theme: Hydro Dynamics

Have you ever wondered how you get the water you use in your daily life? Whether it’s to brush your teeth, quench your thirst, cook your food, or even take a swim – all of us need water! Does it come from the ground, a river or a lake? How do you make sure it’s safe to drink, and what happens when it goes down a drain? In this season’s HYDRO DYNAMICS Robot Challenge, you’ll explore these questions and many more, and you’ll get to learn about the amazing engineering used to protect your most precious liquid asset – water!!

Mondays, 5:00pm

This hands on class will unleash the creativity of younger kids ages 6-10 as science and
engineering collide. Starting with the foundation of simple scientific concepts, students will learn the engineering approach to design practical machines that they can to take home. We will create roller coasters, rubber band cars, and catapults to name just a few.

Build a variety of airborne vehicles with hands on projects and watch them fly.

Through the completion of hands-on activities and challenges, students are encouraged  to be creative problem solvers, critical thinkers and masters of the engineering design process while exploring concepts and  questions  that  may not  be covered  in traditional science classes.  Instructors will guide students as they imagine, plan, design, create, and  improve  upon  their solutions.  The emphasis is on practicing with real world  examples  in a real  world  environment.

The cost of the class includes all class materials

Curiosity peaks when children are faced with using everyday materials to solve real world problems. Today, the field of robotics is booming and not for gaming alone. Cars, smartphones and thermostats at home are just some of the items we use without even thinking of their ties to robotics and mechanical engineering. At SJIC, children are introduced to new challenges in robot building that encourages problem solving and collaboration in an interactive learning framework that encourages and exploration. Creative problem-solving and unique STEM skills are at the core as students participate in challenging activities that foster a love of science, technology and engineering.
