Classes at Engineering For Kids of Northeast Georgia

Offering the Coolest Enrichment Programs Around

All Engineering For Kids programs are designed to help children build problem-solving skills, encourage them to discover how things work, increase their desire to explore engineering as a career option, and motivate them to learn math and science concepts by engaging them in real-world engineering challenges.

Junior Classes

Serving students from Pre-Kindergraten-2nd grade

Our Junior curriculum is specifically created for 4-7 year olds to:

  • introduce students to Engineering Design Process as a method of individual discovery and inquiry
  • provide numerous opportunities for exploration into various fields of engineering through authentic hands-on experiences and real-world application
  • explore the links between engineering, science, technology, and math through fun and engaging hands-on activities

Our classes are offered as separate, 6-week sessions.

All classes described below are being offered in the Winter/Spring but at varied locations. Please click on the "Register Now" button at the top of the page to find out where and when we will offer each class!

Taking to the Skies

The Junior Aerospace Engineering classes introduce our youngest engineers to fundamental concepts of aircraft and spacecraft design. Through open and focused exploration, students explore and construct airplanes, rockets, helicopters, and more.

Thinking Green

In Junior Environmental, students ponder some truly “hot” environmental issues by saving endangered animals, helping plants grow, and creating protection from the sun’s heat. By investigating natural processes like erosion, animal adaptations, and plant growth, we discover ways to be inspired by the world around us to take on all sorts of engineering challenges.

Fun Foundations

Building a house to withstand the Big, Bad Wolf is where the fun begins in Junior Civil. This class is centered on exploring the concepts of building and construction through hands-on exploration and design. Students explore the engineering behind sky scrapers, bridges, roads, and more in this fun and engaging experience.

Widgets & Gadgets

The Junior Mechanical Engineering classes introduce our youngest engineers to fundamental concepts of energy, materials, and movement. Through open and focused exploration, students explore and construct their own roller coasters, catapults, cars, and more.

Apprentice/Master Classes

Serving students from 3rd-8th grades

Our Apprentice curriculum is specifically created for 8-14 year olds to:

  • apply the Engineering Design Process to solve fun and engaging challenges
  • recognize science, technology, and math as key elements of engineering through reflection, problem-solving, and real-world application
  • construct authentic, open-ended designs in collaborative small groups
  • create collaborative solutions to complex problems using technology, science, and math as integral parts of the Engineering Design Process
  • discuss current events and explore future questions related to the various fields of engineering

Our classes are offered as separate, 6-week sessions.

Robotics 101

The curriculum for Robotics 101 introduces students to robot building and programming. Students will build robots to accomplish a specific task while using their imaginations to improve upon basic robots. During this session, students will discover the Engineering Design Process in a real-world setting as they test their robots in many fun and differing trials.

Mission to Mars

Mission to Mars is designed to introduce students to the world of not only building, but programming basic robots. Throughout this course, students will explore the many different ways in which a robot could be utilized to explore a distant planet. Students will continue to use the Engineering Design Process for testing and improving their robot designs.

Robot Surgeons

Robot Surgeon curriculum increases students' knowledge on building and programming robots. Throughout this course, the students will explore different ways in which a robot could be utilized in the medical field, like setting a bone, assisting in operations, or defeating harmful bacteria.

RoboGames

RoboGames allows students to increase their robotics knowledge by building and programming robots to play various competitive games, such as Hungry Hungry Robots, Ultrasonic Hide and Seek, Carnival Toss, and more. Perfect for beginners or experienced students!
