Engineering For Kids (Grades K-2, Grades 3-5)

The Park School is partnering with Engineering for Kids to offer a DOUBLE CLASS for TWO different age groups!

Junior Engineering (Grades K-2)


Junior Mechanical Toys: In this program our engineers will be introduced to diameter, kinetic and potential energy, force, momentum, vibration, and motion. Students will explore and construct six different toys throughout this unit, including spinners, boomerang cans, wind-up whirligigs, buzzers, popper launchers, and guitars.

Junior Lego WeDo Robotics: Amazing Mechanisms: In this program, we will be exploring a variety of coding and technology skills as well as working on group collaboration, critical thinking, and hands-on skills! Children will have the opportunity to learn about parts of robots and machines such as axles, circuits, gears and pulleys. Many of these simple machines are easily translatable to real life situations (doorknobs, cars, even pulling water from a well!). The children will be building and coding, using motion sensors while building dancing birds, a drumming monkey, a spinner, and much more!

Fee:  $168 per student

Apprentice Engineering (Grades 3-5)

Apprentice Mechanical: Students will learn about kinetic and potential energy, gravity, durability, forces, friction, angles and much more while constructing their own marble mazes, roller coasters, egg-drop vehicles, CD racers, balloon and air powered dragster cars, and catapults. We focus on group collaboration while designing, creating, testing, and re-building various machines throughout this unit.

VEX IQ Robotics: A VEX IQ class is designed to expose students to STEM fundamentals within the context of building a robot. Without even realizing it, students will begin to instinctively apply these lessons to their as they advance through the program. This hands-on process establishes an intuitive and deep-rooted expertise that simply cannot be replicated by traditional teaching methods. Once the children have built their VEX robots they will then compete with teammates to achieve various missions!
