Learning about the engineering design process, each day of camp will present a different challenge to solve: designing bridges, improving play dough and designing walls. Following the Engineering is Elementary curricula for grades 1-3, campers will explore chemical engineering, materials engineering and civil engineering with visits from real engineers to the class.
Instructors: Marcy Erickson, Michelle Miller and Lloyd Wescoat
Grade 4-6 A Taste of Tech!
Kids will explore a variety of labs and do some cool engineering activities along the way!
Watch worms at home in the soil with a visit to the Rhizotron
Take a hike on Tech Trails
Bend water and make silly putty at the chemistry lab
Try out a real driving simulator with mechanical engineers
Smash concrete and test a Maglev track with civil engineers
Have fun with trains with transportation engineers.
And enjoy a free lunch at Michigan Tech (MUB) on Thursday, compliments of the Michigan Tech Transportation Institute
Instructors: Joan Chadde, Chris Hohnholt, along with Michigan Tech faculty and students.
The Western UP Center for Science, Mathematics and Environmental
Education coordinates six-week After School Science Classes taught by
Michigan Tech University students majoring in science and engineering.
The After-School classes provide fun, hands-on, inquiry-based activities
for students in grades 1-8 during three sessions of the school year: fall,
winter, and spring. The Center develops the curricula so that all activities
connect to Michigan Content Standards for math and science, provides activity
kits for each lesson, and recruits and trains the MTU students.
