Marine Engineering and MinecraftEDU: Terraformer at Saskatoon Field House

Run by Engineering for Kids - Saskatoon Ages 7-12 yrs



Choose AM only or PM only or Full Day Camp
Marine Engineering (Morning Only)
Marine engineering has existed since the time of the earliest ships, it has been called by other names, such as ocean engineering and marine mechanical engineering. Engineers in this discipline deal primarily with designing and maintaining the moving parts located below-deck in ships. With the advent of modern technology, marine engineers also oversee the design of other ship components, such as propellers, stabilizers, and rescue systems. Marine engineering is also closely tied to naval architecture.

During the Marine Engineering classes, your child will use the Engineering Design Process to design, create, test, and refine several types of marine based devices and vehicles. Your child will construct working prototypes that teach and reinforce the concepts of above water transportation, underwater exploration, and harnessing the power of water. They gain exposure to careers in naval, ocean, and marine engineering as well as naval architecture.

MinecraftEDU: Terraformer (afternoons only)
Terraforming is the process of changing a planet so that it is more useful for humans and the other kinds of life that we depend upon. In this camp, your child will pretend to have landed on a planet that is nearly suitable for colonization by Earthlife but it needs a few improvements before the rest of the colonists arrive. How well will your child terraform?

Your child will be immersed in the expansive world of Minecraft, and their ingenuity and problem solving skills will be challenged as they work towards several immense engineering goals. Your child will learn how to use teamwork and manage resources like an engineer in the real world. Building in MinecraftEDU allows students to experiment with designs and materials, all without the risks associated with building structures in reality.

No previous Minecraft experience is needed. We run our custom worlds on our own server so there is no connection to the internet.
