Engineering for Kids: 3D Printing Super Heroes to the Rescue | 7 - 12 years
3D printers are one of the most widely applicable and fun inventions on the tech scene today! In this class, we will explore the basic concepts of 3D printing and computer-aided design, or CAD, to design and create our very own 3D printed superhero! Students will take their hand-drawn design and learn how to extrude it into a 3D model that can then be modified to be printed in 3D.

Engineering for Kids: Video Game Design Invader Defense Games | 7 - 12 years
Students will use the Engineering Design Process to create a storyboard to outline the rules of play and characters for a new invader defense game. Then, we will use Clickteam Fusion 2.5 to bring our storyboard to life with programming. At the end of class, everyone takes home a working Windows-compatible game! An invader defense game is one in which the programmer creates a pack of enemies for the player to evade and destroy. In our game we will choose to either face aliens in our rocket, squash some bugs, or tangle with sharks.
