All classes take place on Thursday evenings from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. in the classroom building on campus. Click here to see map.

Catapult Construction
Thursday, October 2
Using popsicle sticks and glue, you will design and construct a mini catapult. Adjust your design and implement rubber bands to fling marshmallows into a bucket 3 meters away! Come test the factors that increase power and distance on your project!

Catch the Water
Thursday, October 9
What happens to water after it rains? Find the answer as you build a three-dimensional model of a water catchment basin. Students experiment to see where rain travels and how natural and human-made activities effect these pathways. Join us to better understand how engineers work to help preserve water cycles!

Iron Core
Thursday, October 16
You will act as a mini food-engineer by working in reverse to separate iron from cereal!  Through the use of magnets, and concepts of force you will get the chance to explore how to isolate the material. Take a closer look at how engineers work to keep us healthy!

Weather Vane Wisdom
 Thursday, October 23
Create your own anemometers to test wind speed and direction. After testing your very own design, discuss real-world applications for uses at airports for flying safety, chemical plants to monitor air flow or even for selecting wind farm locations. Come work in teams to wise up on wind!
