Run by Engineering for Kids - Saskatoon






Tagged in: Science & Tech, Summer Camps

Choose AM only or PM only or Full Day Camp

Use real solar panels on vehicles in the mornings for a post-gasoline world. Animate the future by saving your imagination in a video game in the afternoons.

Design the Future (mornings only)

What does the future look like? Join us as we embark on an odyssey to explore the future of transportation, manufacturing and structural. Let’s take a look at the innovations of today and apply them to create the designs of tomorrow as we explore ways to harness clean energy and house a growing human population. Become an engineer and help Design the Future. Your child will also learn about how patents protect new inventions.

Video Game Design: Animate the Future (afternoons only)

Video game design is one of the most imagination driven forms of engineering. Physics or real world issues do not bind video game designers unlike conventional engineers. Anything a video game designer can think up he or she can build without limitations by funding or safety protocols. Many times we like to say the sky is the limit of what we can achieve but for video game engineers the limit is where ever they wish to stop.


Your child will work in pairs to create their video games. He or she will receive all of the games made during the class, not just their own! At the end of the class, Engineering for Kids can make a software purchasing discount available. The software is Clickteam Fusion 2.5 which is also used by some professional game developers. No coding experience is needed nor do we do coding.
