Our goal is to help children along their engineering education path – whether that be at our camps or at home! Many of these activities are the same as those you will find in our “ECC in school page” – but are modified for success at home. You will notice that these activities do not have a specific materials list. We encourage your family to use whatever items that you may have an excess of or materials that were already headed to the recycling bin.
Each activity, what we call an “engineering design challenge”, will require children to work through the Engineering Design process. Using the Engineering Habits of Mind will also help students succeed on these activities. You can find graphics for both of these below the activity links.
Want more? We will continue to add new design challenges – so be sure to check back! We also post on engineering disciplines, real life engineering problems, profiles of engineers, and more on our blog.
