  • New STEM/Engineering class for Grades 5 and up Begins Today details

    5:30 pm - 6:45 pm

    New STEM class starts today!

    Engineering a Pandemic Response
    In this unit, youth will be introduced to engineering and the Engineering Design Process as they work together to engineer a solution to a biomedical engineering challenge. Youth will begin by exploring how diseases can spread from one person to another in order to introduce them to the problem of stopping the spread of viruses. They will then take part in a mock-outbreak scenario, where they will engineer an antiviral for a contagious virus, create public service announcements to inform the public, and consider what steps they should take to prevent the outbreak from becoming a pandemic. As part of the last class, parents will be invited to attend a special Showcase/Exhibition where participants will present what they have learned about virus outbreaks and the Engineering Design Process by sharing the engineering work they have done.

    New STEM/Engineering class starts Today!

    Engineering Prosthetic Devices
    In this unit, youth will be introduced to the Engineering Design Process as they work together to engineer solutions to biomechanical engineering challenges. Youth will learn about important factors to keep in mind when designing prosthetic devises as they engineer a model leg for an elephant and a model beak for an eagle. They will then learn the story of Winter, a dolphin with a prosthetic tail. This will help set the context for their final design challenge, designing a model prosthetic device for a fish. Working with models and having youth consider what is required for a successful prosthetic device are important goals for this unit. As part of the last class, parents will be invited to attend a special Showcase/Exhibition where participants will present what they have learned about prosthetic devices and the Engineering Design Process by sharing the engineering work they have done.
