Macomb County Classes2015 After-School, Evening, & Weekend Programs
Students use the Engineering Design Process to design, create, test, and refine a variety of flying machines. They construct a shock absorbing system designed to protect two marshmallow astronauts in a lunar vehicle, create their own air-powered rockets, and assemble a hot air balloon model that actually takes flight!
Electronic Game Design - Platform Games (3rd-8th grade)During Electronic Game Design - Platform Games classes, students will use Multimedia Fusion 2® to create their own video game. A platform game is a side-scrolling, Mario-type game where students program characters and a two-dimensional obstacle course. They attempt to avoid or overcome enemies and reach an end goal on multiple levels. At the end of the class, students take home a copy of the game they create on a custom Engineering for Kids® thumb drive!

Students use the Engineering Design Process to design, create, test, and refine a variety of machines and mechanical systems. Students learn basics of fluid mechanics, simple machines, and other design and engineering concepts while constructing roller coasters, egg-drop vehicles, and an incredibly fast air powered dragster that they keep at the end of the course.
Students will learn to design, program, and control fully functional robotic models. They will use software to plan, test, and modify sequences of instructions for a variety of life-like robotic behaviors. They will also learn to collect and analyze data from the robots' sensors. This program will provide a series of real-life activities, covering topics within science, technology, engineering, and mathematics all using LEGO® Robotics.
