Engineering Experience

 

We will work as team and individually to build and engineer multiple projects. Some projects mightinclude, doodle bots, catapults, cranes, musical instruments, etc. This workshop will involve critical thinking, problem solving, and creativity.

Portal 2 Game Design & Creation (5th Grade +)

Learn the intricacies of video game level design using Portal 2's creation chamber. In this course, we will learn how game mechanics interact with each other, how lighting affects a game environment, game physics, and more! Using this information, students will design and play their own custom Portal 2 puzzles. We will provide all students with a Maker Mill copy of Portal 2 during their time in the course, though students are able to use their own Portal 2 accounts if they choose. All students will have the option to take home their game files, however, they will need to purchase their own copy of Portal 2 on PC to run these files at home. 

Life Science Experience

 

Enter the fun world of Life science and learning about the world around us. The children will be introduced to The Scientific Method while conducting hands on experiments to learn about the life cycle of the butterfly, dissecting Owl pellets,  observing plants, Etc. Skills learned in this workshop are observing, predicting, measuring, and comparing.
