Mechanical concept sounds very complex but when we apply it in Engineering For Kids workshop for age 4-14 students, it brings lots of fun and challenges.
Mechanical Workshop includes making toys like Spinners, Magical Boomerang Cans, Windup Whirligigs or creating widgets like roller coasters, catapults, egg-drop vehicles or even air powered dragster. Students will not need to design, create, test and then
improve which is based upon our Engineering Design Process (EDP). The process empowers students to use their creativity to design, basic mechanical principles to create, scientific mind to test before further improving the design and rebuild. Students usually have full motivation to improve their product and make it work better and better.
In the coming regular September workshop, we will bring two courses related to Mechanical concepts. “Let’s Make Toys” on Sunday morning in North Point is designed for junior age 4-6. To expand on the children’s passion for toys, this workshop will allow them to design and create their own toys like Buzzer and guitar vibration, Boomerang Can and Spinner. “Design Extreme” on Wednesday after school in North Point is for apprentice age 7-10. Machines of distinct purpose will be designed and created on their own to solve how long, how strong, how fast and how can questions. They can explore further at home after each session.
