Under Construction - The Engineering of Cities

Put on your hard hats engineers and join us for our The Engineering of Cities! In this camp, students work hard to apply their knowledge of construction to save the beach from erosion and build their very own city from the ground up. From roads and tunnels to buildings and skyscrapers, students discover that no job's too tough for an Engineering for Kids engineer! Building a city is more than roads and skyscrapers. In this camp, students explore civil, mechanical and environmental engineering. Students explore the engineering behind objects that they see every day: skyscrapers, roads, tunnels, and even cranes.

  • The Camp meets at Queen of Heaven, 1800 Steese Road, Uniontown 44685.
  • Monday July 29 to Friday August 2,

Amazing Race - The Engineering of Travel

111 years ago airplanes had not even made their first flight, yet today we can fly to the other side of the world in 12 hours! It is thanks to advances in technology that we are able to explore so much of the world. Over the five days teams will have to work together to see who is able to travel the farthest around the world. This trek around the world will require students to design their very own boat, plane, and even a rocket

Wreck it Week - The Engineering of Destruction

During Wreck-it Week students will explore four fields of engineering: mechanical, civil, aerospace, and industrial as they design and construct a variety of projects that will then be used in a wrecking scenario. Smash! Crash! BOOM! Students in this camp will join Wrecking Companies for the week and will attempt to work their way up the ranks of their company from Intern to President. They will compete against other wrecking companies in various engineering-related challenges, such as building a bridge from balsawood and constructing safety mechanisms to protect a raw egg from impact. Put on your hard hats and safety goggles and join the fun!
