(K – 1 boys & girls, maximum 12 students)

Dates: Tuesdays 3:00 to 4:00 pm in Ms. Wright’s Classroom (May 16-June 20)
Cost: $135 + GST for 6 x 1 hour sessions

Description: Aerospace engineering involves the design and construction of planes and space shuttles. Aeronautical engineering covers craft that stay inside the Earth’s atmosphere (such as commercial planes) while astronautical engineering covers craft that leave the Earth’s atmosphere (such as space shuttles or rocket ships).

In this program the little brains will learn about the fundamentals of aerospace engineering discovering about: aerodynamics; gravity; velocity; forces to lift; drag and thrust on objects; and the Bernoulli principle. The kids will use their creativity and curiosity to design and build their own flying machines while having fun.

(Grade 2-7 boys & girls, maximum 12 students)

Dates: Tuesdays 3:00 to 4:30 pm in Mrs. Wright’s Classroom (May 16-June 20)
Cost: $160+ GST for 6 x 1.5 hr sessions

Description: A mechanical engineer designs mechanical systems, machines, and tools to improve our lives using a number of important physics concepts and principles. These principles include energy, fluid mechanics, forces, and characteristics of materials. As well these engineers are responsible for machine maintenance and other mechanically functioning equipment.

The specialist and managers will work with and learn about simple machines, mechanical design, physics concepts, kinetic energy, mechanical energy, pneumatics and more. Working in teams, designing, building, and testing their own machines and devices will help the children in discovering and having fun while they using STEM.
