Let’s nourish that enthusiasm and upkeep that curiosity through exciting exploration into the many exciting aspects of Engineering! Become a junior architect and engineer by building model bridges and arches. Discover how airplanes defy gravity as you make a rotor kite twist and an airship twirl. Create a large child-operated pulley system and build a rubber band dragster. Make chemical engineering come to life as you mix up a few reactive
ingredients for some sensational results. Get hands-on with rocket propulsion and blast off rockets across the room. Explore the role of magnetism in our everyday lives with swinging compasses and motorized devices. Put the “loco” in motion and explore Newton’s laws with crash test dummies and rubber band propelled rockets. Imagine, build, design, and have a scientific blast as we channel your excessive enthusiasm in this exciting introduction into the world of Engineering!
