AF STEM Engineering ClubFeb 24, 2021, 3:30 PM to 5:00 PM Location: Online
Virtual Engineering Club is an after school club designed to engage middle school students in using their minds and hands to learn basic principles of engineering by designing, building, testing, and redesigning their own working devices. The curriculum combines guided investigations with fun, open-ended design challenges, emphasizing hands-on experience in solving practical engineering problems through creativity and the application of scientific ideas.
Up to 20 students in grades 6-8 will work in online groups and in solo home activities, using recycled or inexpensive craft materials and simple electronic components to build and test their own engineering creations. Materials will be provided and no prior experience is required.
Virtual Engineering Club runs for 8-weeks, on Wednesdays, beginning on February 24, 2021.
