Explore engineering fields including mechanical, structural, aerospace, nautical and bioengineering. Building different projects students use critical thinking, cooperation, and creative problem solving to test and improve creations.

Additional Information

Launch your imagination to new heights as you explore aerospace engineering! Discover secrets of working in space – efficiency and compact design. Create a trussed space station module, then connect it with others to create a massive modular spacecraft.
Create a sea-worthy vessel as you set sail with nautical engineering! Build and test a boat powered by potential and kinetic energy. Then try changing specific variables to improve speed, buoyancy, and stability.
Discover nature’s engineering secrets as we investigate biomimicry! We can learn a lot about efficient design from observing plants and animals. Build a walking insect machine, then test different ways to help it climb up the steepest branch.
Engineering is creative! Learn how gears, levers, and pulleys are useful tools for mechanical engineers, then combine them with art and design to create and test a motorized drawing machine.
Reach for the sky! Find out how structural engineers use ideas from physics to solve problems. Work together to build a structurally sound tower with a working elevator, then test and improve your design for strength and stability.
