Big Tree Elementary: Spring 2020

Junior Marine Engineering: K-2nd grade

What causes something to sink or float? How can engineers help explore and protect the ocean below? These questions and more are all explored in Junior Marine. In this class, students explore the concepts of marine engineering and mechanics, harnessing the power of water, and discovering designs that help us make the impossible, possible.

Apprentice Marine Engineering: 3rd-5th grade

During the Marine Engineering classes, students use the Engineering Design Process to design, create, test, and refine several types of marine-based devices and vehicles. Students construct working prototypes that teach and reinforce the concepts of above water transportation, underwater exploration, and harnessing the power of water. Students will create and make cartesian divers, paddle boats, power boats, and more.
