Elementary Program (1st – 5th Grade)
Students will be exposed to hands on activities that will bring the principles of engineering alive while learning the engineering design process. The engineering design process is a series of steps that engineers use to solve problems. What makes these activities different is that they will provide no "recipe" and no drawings for building the items. The emphasis is on the students understanding that engineers must "imagine and plan" before they begin to build and experiment. Therefore, students must formulate their ideas and draw up their plans before constructing their project. The goal will be to teach our Scholars to Ask, Imagine, Plan, Create, Experiment, and Improve.
All lessons and activities are aligned to the Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards.
