Magic of Physics Workshop
How does a rocket work and fly? Why does the light turn on when I flip a switch?How does a rollercoaster work? Can I drop an egg and not break it? Learn the answers to these questions and more by conducting experiments in force, mass, energy, friction, momentum, aerodynamics, heat and magnetism.

Students learn how to build and program robots and work with LEGO MINDSTORM KITS. Students will learn how to make a robot follow a line, how to use touch and light sensors. The students will learn about career pathways in high wage, high technology fields. They will also learn about the importance of teamwork in a competitive environment.

Have fun with computers! What makes a computer tick and how can you use it? Take a computer apart. Connect to the internet. Use email to communicate with friends. Build your own personal web page for others to see. Program and control a robot to make it do what you want it to. Do a scavenger hunt and solve problems.

Introduction to Engineering
Are you creative, curious, like to build things or just take things apart and see how they work? Then engineering is for you!!! Like to build cards, try mechanical engineering. Like to build bridges, civil engineering is the place. In each class, you will become a different type of engineer, learn about them, how to become a "real" one and work on a fun activity.
