Engineering For Kids of Winnipeg
Enriching Young Minds in Winnipeg with STEM
This Spring Engineering For Kids is going VIRTUAL!
We are offering a range of Online Engineering Classes in topics like Aerospace
Engineering, 3D Printing, Electrical Engineering and more! At EFK, our
STEM programs provide an experience that will challenge young minds and
promote creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving.
Our curriculum has been Cognia Certified AND deemed a STEM.org Accredited
Educational Experience. By having both of these certifications, it proves
we have carefully developed our programs and courses to give our students
the full scope of their studies and the importance of careers in STEM.
What will my child be doing in the class?: Engineering For Kids provides hands-on lessons backed by engineering topics
and we aim to provide that same experience in our Virtual Classes. We
will cover the Engineering Design Process, followed by a demonstration
and activity where students will get to engineer something of their own,
and then time to ask questions and reflect or improve our designs!
What are your age ranges?: Our Virtual Classes are broken into two age groups, Junior: Ages 4-7 and
Apprentice/Master: Ages 8-14.
How does it work?: Each week students will meet online through
Zoom in real-time with an Engineering For Kids instructor. The instructor will
provide a lesson in different fields each week (ie. aerospace, civil,
mechanical, industrial, & more) and the students will be provided
supplies for the project via Kits.
What kind of equipment do I need for the class? Students will need to be able to download the Zoom Video Platform. Most
devices are compatible, more information on
compatibility and to download can be found here. If you need assistance downloading the program, you can also view a range of
support videos for Zoom here.
How can I receive my supply kit?
You may choose to have your supplies shipped to you. You must sign up for
the class at least 4 business days ahead of time to guarantee you receive
the supplies in time for the first class.
What if I miss my class? We will be recording the teacher portion of the class. If for some reason
you miss your class, you'll still be able to view the lesson at a later
time. The link to the video will expire after 7 days, so be sure to make
up your lesson within that time frame.
Will I need to participate as a parent?: For our younger ones, we ask that a grown-up or older sibling assist
with any scissors or gluing during the activity. If your lesson might
require a little extra assistance, it will be noted under the lesson description.
