Junior Engineering Programs

Pre-K to 2nd Grade

Kelvin the Robot

Our Junior Engineers are naturally curious about the world they live in. Our Junior programs focus on exploration with free-play, guided projects and easy to understand lessons.

Junior Aerospace Engineering

Taking to the Skies

The Junior Aerospace Engineering classes introduce our youngest engineers to fundamental concepts of aircraft and spacecraft design. Through open and focused exploration, students explore and construct airplanes, rockets, helicopters, and more.

Junior Chemical Engineering

Crazy Concoctions

The Junior Chemical Engineering classes introduce our youngest engineers to fundamental concepts of solids, liquids, and solutions. Students investigate the properties of several crazy concoctions and make their own samples of bubbles, play dough, flub, and more.

Junior Civil Engineering

Fun Foundations

Building a house to withstand the Big, Bad Wolf is where the fun begins in Junior Civil. This class is centered on exploring the concepts of building and construction through hands-on exploration and design. Students explore the engineering behind sky scrapers, bridges, roads, and more in this fun and engaging experience.

Junior Environmental

Thinking Green

Are you ready to get down and dirty searching for solutions to some of our biggest environmental problems? In Junior Environmental, students ponder some truly “hot” environmental issues. Students in this class save endangered animals, help plants grow, and create protection from the sun’s heat. By investigating natural processes like erosion, animal adaptations, and plant growth; we discover ways that we, as engineers, can be inspired by the world around us to take on all sorts of challenges.

Junior Industrial Engineering

Fun Factory

The Junior Industrial Engineering classes introduce our youngest engineers to fundamental concepts of simple machinery, cooperative building, and the assembly line process. Through open and focused exploration, students explore and construct simple machines and then use an assembly line process to produce a delicious treat!

Junior Marine Engineering

Set Sail

What causes something to sink or float? How can engineers help explore and protect the ocean below? These questions and more are all explored in Junior Marine. In this class, students explore the concepts of marine engineering and mechanics, harnessing the power of water, and discovering designs that help us make the impossible, possible.

Junior Mechanical Engineering

Let's Make Toys

In the Junior Mechanical Engineering: Let’s Make Toys classes, our youngest engineers will be introduced to fundamental concepts of energy, materials, and movement. Students will explore and construct six different toys throughout this unit, including spinners, magical boomerang cans, wind-up whirligigs, and more.

Junior Mechanical Engineering

Widgets and Gadgets

The Junior Mechanical Engineering classes introduce our youngest engineers to fundamental concepts of energy, materials, and movement. Through open and focused exploration, students explore and construct their own roller coasters, catapults, cars, and more.
