Matter Engineering (Mornings Only)

Chemical engineering is a specialized field of engineering that focuses on understanding the molecular structure of matter, and relating this knowledge to synthesizing new technology. Your child will be introduced to fundamental concepts of solids, liquids, and solutions. Your child will investigate the properties of several crazy concoctions and make their own samples of bubbles, play dough, flub, and more.

Toy Builders

Mechanical engineering is one of the oldest disciplines of engineering, as many inventions from Ancient Greece, China, and Persia continue to be used to this day with little modification. Mechanical engineers are responsible for designing parts of machinery, both on small and large scales, as systems of machines and maintaining these systems to achieve optimal performance. We will introduce your child to the field of mechanical engineering through the investigation and design of an assortment of toys. Your child will learn about various principles of motion as they construct each of the following toys during the course of the unit: Popper, Spinner, Boomerang Can, Wind-Up Whirligig, Buzzer, and the Good Vibrations Guitar.
Simple Machines (Afternoons Only)

Industrial Engineering plays a larger role in our daily lives than most would imagine. Individuals employed in this fast-growing field are accountable for maintaining high standards of efficiency in factory settings and ensuring all systems are optimized for maximum production output. Industrial engineers design machinery, parts, and systems that help to promote a steady workflow and minimize many different types of economical waste.

The curriculum for the Junior Industrial Engineering program is designed to introduce your child to simple machinery, cooperative building, and the assembly line processes in a hands-on setting. Your child will actively explore time management, production efficiency, and other aspects of systems and materials engineering during this unit.


Civil engineering is one of the widest-reaching disciplines in the engineering field. Civil engineers must work cooperatively with architects, local governments, citizens, and other engineers to successfully build large- and small-scale projects. Civil engineers use aspects of physics, mathematics, and computer technology to create plans and drawings that are used by different professionals to build structures.

The curriculum for the Junior Civil Engineering program is designed to introduce your child to the job of a civil engineer, the field of civil engineering, and basic concepts of engineering as it relates to building and construction. Through open exploration and focused exploration, your child will design and construct their own skyscrapers, bridges, and houses.
