Engineer’s Clubs

Our Engineers Clubs are like-aged kids who meet once a week to build, program, create, and share projects ranging from robotics to web pages and more. Below is the description of the types of projects our kids will be working with.

NOTE: Because of the nature of our project based clubs, we do not conduct “trial classes.” Our clubs involve cumulative projects, not one-time demonstrations.

Jump to Grades K-3
Jump to Grades 4/5
Jump to Grades 6-8

Upcoming Session Outline

Grades K-3 Engineers

December is Engineering Challenge Month. Each week our staff will choose an age appropriate building challenge for the club to solve. The challenges might include electronics, motion, design, and more.

Mondays – 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. – December 3, 10, 17 – Price is adjusted for 3 sessions.
OR
Saturdays – 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. – December 1, 8, 15 – Price is adjusted for 3 sessions.


January is Digital Imaging Month. Our youngest engineers will be working with our Digital Cameras and computers to learn the basics of photography, simple graphic design, and publishing techniques. They will also work within a graphic design software to edit and manipulate their images.

Mondays – 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. – January 7, 14, 28

OR

Saturdays – 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. – January 12, 19, 26


February is Digital Production Month. Our youngest engineers will be creating their own paper stop motion animation movies, as well as animations using Scratch software to tell fun, silly stories. We aim to bring the tools learned in January into practice this month as well.

Mondays – 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. – February 4, 11, 18, 25

OR

Saturdays – 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. – February 2, 9, 16, 23


March is Robotics Month. Our youngest engineers will be working with our Lego WeDo & Dash and Dot robotics kits to learn about basic robotics to include mechanical engineering, programming and teamwork. This month is a great introduction to Robotics that might lead your engineer into more advanced Robotics studies & work at school or on one of our fall robotics teams.

Mondays – 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. – March 4, 11, 25

OR

Saturdays – 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. – March 2, 9, 30

Note: There are only 3 meeting dates in March. Our prices reflect this change.


April is Physical Computing Month. Our youngest engineers will working in the Scratch software package and then take things to the physical world by creating their own controllers using the Microbit computing devices. At the conclusion of the month your engineer will take home their own Microbit kit. The price of this month’s dues reflect the cost of the kit. Skills practiced this month include programming and electronics.

Mondays – 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. – April 1, 8, 15, 22

OR

Saturdays – 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. – April 6, 13, 20, 27


May is Fun with Fabrication Month.  Our youngest engineers will code in Turtle Art and work with Graphic (an AutoCad app) to create some fun artistic posters, tee shirts, and even some 3D printed projects.

Mondays – 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. – April 29, May 6, 13, 20

OR

Saturdays – 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. – May 4, 11, 18, 25


Grades 4 & 5 Engineers

December is Engineering Challenge Month. Each week our staff will choose an age appropriate building challenge for the club to solve. The challenges might include electronics, motion, design, and more.

Saturdays – 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon – December 1, 8, 15 – Price is adjusted for 3 sessions.


January is Digital Imaging Month. Our 4th and 5th engineers will be working with our Digital Cameras and computers to learn the basics of photography, graphic design, and publishing techniques. They will also work within a graphic design software to edit and manipulate their images. We will delve into Photoshop – so your children may come home asking for their own digital camera and Photoshop software! 🙂 At the end of the month, our engineers will have begun a digital portfolio of their work.

Saturdays – 10:30 to 12:00 noon – January 12, 19, 26


February is Digital Production Month. Our 4th & 5th grade engineers will be creating their own LEGO stop motion animation movies, as well as animations using Scratch software to tell fun, silly stories. We aim to bring the tools learned in January into practice this month as well.  Your engineers will have created more work to add to their digital portfolio.

Saturdays – 10:30 to 12:00 noon –  February 2, 9, 16, 23


March is Robotics Month. Our 4th & 5th engineers will be working with our Lego EV3 robotics kits to learn about basic robotics to include mechanical engineering, programming and teamwork.

April is Physical Computing Month. Our 4th & 5th grade engineers will working with the Microbit.  The engineers will be writing their own code in Microsoft’s MakeCode block-based or Javascript Programming. At the conclusion of the month, engineers will take home their own Microbit kit. The price of this month’s dues reflect the cost of the kit. Skills practiced this month include programming and electronics.

Saturdays – 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon  -April 6, 13, 20, 27


May is Fun with Fabrication Month.  Our 4th and 5th grade engineers will code in Beetle Blocks and work with Graphic (an AutoCad app) to create some fun artistic posters, tee shirts, and even some 3D printed projects. Engineers in this age group will also work with our screenprinter to create some fun tee shirts and posters.

Saturdays – 10:30 to 12:00 noon – May 4, 11, 18, 25
