Engineering for Kids

At Engineering For Kids we believe that children are natural born engineers who have unlimited imaginations and unbridled enthusiasm.  We offer fun, hands-on learning for children ages 4 to 12.  Our activities range from building flashlights and rockets to programming video games and robots.  The variety of programming is extraordinary!

AM Session:
9:00am – Noon             PM Session: 12:30 – 3:30pm

*Sign Up for both AM and PM Sessions and lunch time care (Noon – 12:30pm) is included.

June 29 – July 3 9:00 to 10:30 am (Virtual) Jr Scratch programming Ages 6 – 7  Location: Virtual


Embark on fun journey to space with Scratch! Send an astronaut to the moon and defend your moon base from space rocks. Learn how to use Scratch to create and program sprites, backdrops and basic scripts. Create a new program each day, leave with evidence of your wild space adventure, and be inspired to explore the universe of programming as a Space Pioneer.

June 29 – July 3 11:00 to 12:30 pm (Virtual) Electronic Game Design: Alien Invasion Ages 8 – 14 
Location: Virtual

In the Electronic Game Design: Invader Defense class, we will create our own version of an invader defense game where we will defend against an invasion. We will use the Engineering Design Process to create a storyboard to outline the rules of play and characters for our game. Then, we will use Construct to bring our storyboard to life with programming.

June 29 – July 3 1:30 to 3:00 (Virtual) Computer Aided Design Ages 8 – 14 
Location: Virtual

Students will learn the basics of 3D design and modeling. Using the TinkerCAD platform, we will design, build, and edit 3d models. Basic principles of 3d printing and other uses for solid modeling will be covered. At the end of the class students will be able to make a model suitable for 3D printing.

July 20-24 AM Session Hardware Engineering: Digital interface with circuitry Ages 8 – 12  Location: Bryn Mawr Spring House, 9 S. Bryn Mawr Avenue

Imagine designing a piano using celery or a creating a custom digital training program. Now, envision playing video games using just your body, a bit of wire and your own imagination. In our hardware engineering program, students engineer their own customized video game controllers using a Makey Makey device and materials that can be found in just about any kitchen. Through application of circuitry, acoustical engineering and video game design, students discover new ways to interact with technology, all while creating unique designs in a fun collaborative environment.

July 20- 24 PM Session Jr Hardware Engineering: Scratch with Makey Makey Ages 4 – 7 Location: Bryn Mawr Meeting Room, 9 S. Bryn Mawr Avenue

When your favorite song comes on the radio do you sit quiet or do you dance around and play the air drum solo? In Musical Adventures With Scratch and Makey Makey, we are going to explore how different sounds are created and we will create our own interpretations of common musical instruments like drums, piano, guitar, and even a recorder, and we will create our very own dancing program, all through the use of Makey Makey and Scratch to bring our music to life! The last day will end with a bang, or at least a great mini concert from our students!

July 20 - 24 PM Session App Engineering Olympiad Ages 8 – 12
Location: Bryn Mawr Community Ctr, 9 S. Bryn Mawr Ave

Who has the strength to be a world-class athlete? In this five-day camp, students will separate into counties and will compete against opposing counties in various tests of mental and creative strength. The students will earn “medals” throughout the week and will endeavor to become the next great team of Olympians.

July 27 – 31 AM Session Jr Under Construction Ages 6 – 7
Location: Bryn Mawr Spring House, 9 S. Bryn Mawr Ave

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!

July 27 – 31 AM Session App Medieval Mayhem Ages 8 – 12
Location: Bryn Mawr Community Center, 9 S. Bryn Mawr Avenue

In medieval times, there were a huge number of engineering innovations. Crossbows, drawbridges, towers, cranes, the compass, and more were invented during those times. The lands then were ruled by feudal courts in a castle, with each castle having a great deal of land around it that was ruled by the lords and ladies of the castle. Because owning land meant more power, many lords and ladies went to battle with other lords and ladies, trying to take their castle and control their land. This led to many incredible devices being engineered, such as catapults. Students will be split into groups forming their own feudal court of lords and ladies. They will try to beat out the other teams in various challenges to show their prowess and be crowned kings and queens of the land with the Engineering for Kids Crown.

July 27 – 31 PM Session App Engineering of Adventurers Ages 8 – 12
Location: Bryn Mawr Community Center, 9 S. Bryn Mawr Avenue

Welcome to Engineering of Adventurers! Students in this five-day camp will find themselves stranded on an abandoned island filled with perilous obstacles–dark caves, wild animals, cold temperatures, little food, and separation from the comforts of home. They will work collaboratively with their tribe members to compete against other tribes in specific engineering-related projects aimed at trying to survive the harsh island conditions and escape to their freedom. The tribe with the most points at the end of the week will claim the honor of Engineering of Adventurer.

Aug 24-28 AM Session Jr LEGO Robotics: Adventure Stories Ages 6 - 7
Location: Bryn Mawr Spring House, 9 S. Bryn Mawr Ave

This camp is a perfect mixture of fun and learning, using LEGO® WeDo Robotics. Using LEGO® bricks, students build an airplane rescue, a giant escape, and a sailboat storm. They also learn how to program and operate their creations using a laptop computer.

August 24 – 28 AM Session Out Of this World Ages 8 – 12
Location: Bryn Mawr Community Center, 9 S. Bryn Mawr Avenue

During Out of this World camp, students will explore three fields of engineering: aerospace, civil, and chemical. Collaborating with their Space State teams, they will design and construct a variety of projects that will enable mankind to safely inhabit the moon. Is mankind ready to inhabit the moon? With a little help from Engineering for Kids® students, humans will be prepared to take up residence by the end of the week! Students will collaborate with their Space State teams to create the safest and most effective community on the moon. Which team will earn enough Astro-Points to be declared the winner?

August 24 – 28 PM Session Jr Aerospace Engineering: Taking to the Skies Ages 6 - 7

In the Twisted Fairy Tales Camp, we will design a getaway vehicle for the heroine from Kate and the Beanstalk, help The Three Billy Goats Fluff devise a method to cross the bridge quietly and not wake the Troll, and construct an edible reef entirely from candy to protect The Three Little Fish from the Big Bad Shark! Join us as we explore the Engineering of Fairy Tales!

August 31 – Sep 4 AM Session App Electronic Game Design: Hydrocrafts Ages 8 – 12
Location: Bryn Mawr Community Center, 9 S. Bryn Mawr Avenue

Prepare for some fast splashing fun as we use the Engineering Design Process to design and create our very own racing game to race our personally designed hydrocrafts! We will create a storyboard to identify and capture the rules of play and characters for our game, and then use Clickteam Fusion 2.5® to bring our storyboard to life with programming. At the end of the unit, everyone takes home a working Windows-compatible game.

August 31 – Sep 4 PM Session Jr Mechanical Engineering: Widgets, Gadgets and Toys Ages 6 - 7
Location: Bryn Mawr Spring House, 9 S. Bryn Mawr Avenue

August 31 – Sep 4 PM Session App 3D Printing: Minecraft Creations Ages 8 – 12
Location: Bryn Mawr Community Center, 9 S. Bryn Mawr Avenue

3D printing and Minecraft both represent boundless opportunity for creating even our wildest of ideas! In 3D Printing: Minecraft Creations, students will explore the basic concepts of 3D printing and computer-aided design, or CAD, to bring their most awesome Minecraft creation to life! Students will take their Minecraft design out of the world of Minecraft and learn how to extrude it into a 3D model that can then be modified to be printed in 3D.
