Intro to Engineering
About our preschool class
Why learn about engineering?
Technology is a fast growing industry, and the ability to navigate this technological world will help in every part of life. Introducing these concepts to your preschooler will give them a head start for when they get to grade school and find that technology is now a major part of the curriculum.
About our class
Young children love to build! In this unique class they learn to do just that. Our hands-on exploration of simple machines introduces students to the basic concepts of physical science, math & engineering. Our Lego engineering projects take shape and will amaze our young architects! This course is a great all-around adventure for the youngest learners. Students will be introduced to simple machines and gears. Projects may include: Pinwheels, Spinning Top, and a Rotating Fan.
After the class
In this course, students were introduced to robotics. They got to both follow instructions to create a base robot and then get creative and make changes to it afterwards!
Parent Activity Suggestions:
- Ask your student about what they learned today in class. What is engineering?
- Have your student walk you through what they accomplished. What did they build? How did it work? Were there pulleys, levers, gears?
