Engineering for Kids Camps inspire children to build on their natural curiosity through fun and challenging, hands-on activities. Our program encourages imagination, innovation and collaboration as well as the promotion of individual problem solving skills. Campers are introduced to the concepts of engineering and the Engineering Design Process, applying these concepts in a real world setting as they ask, brainstorm, design, build, test and improve their creations multiple times.

What’s in the box? Computer Building with Raspberry Pi
The computer that prepares kids for a lifetime of building technology! As kids build Piper and progress through the games, they develop both technical skills and approaches that lead to inventive solutions. Engineering For Kids will coach you through this learning system, which teaches kids engineering and programming through a combination of engaging storyline, physical building, and Raspberry Pi Edition of Minecraft.
During the camp, students will work in teams of up to 3 to assemble their computer themselves, advance through a Raspberry Pi Edition of Minecraft Story, and learn physical engineering and electronics in the process. Each lesson builds on the last. It is our ultimate goal to increase participant’s creative confidence around computers and electronics.
