Engineering Explorations

Engineering Explorations
Applying textbook science and mathematics to real world applications sounds like fun, right? It is fun– lots of fun! Schola Enrichment Engineering class aims to instill and cultivate the engineering passion in students. Someone’s child invented the first light bulb, rocket, car, bridge. Why not your child?

This course is all about learning by exploring. Lessons explaining electrical, structural, aerodynamic, and chemical engineering topics will give the student knowledge for their “tool kits,” while invention and exploration assignments will guide them as they put their tools to work.

While this is an elementary grade course, the content and tools require a mature audience. The classroom will be run very strictly due to the use of grown-up tools like wire cutters, scissors, electrical circuitry, etc. Being able to follow directions is a must.

Engineering Explorations meets for one hour. (See schedule.) The average student should plan to devote approximately one hour or less each week to homework. Regular progress reports will be sent to parents.
