Flashback to 2019
We had SO much fun during our 2019 season. Our campers studied aerospace and mechanical engineering in our first ever specialty weeks. We had K2 students reading stories and solving problems the main characters had using engineering. We had high school students designing and presenting prototypes to address one of the 14 Grand Challenges of their choice. We had elementary and middle school students communicating and collaborating their way through the engineering design process to solve problems from a multitude of engineering disciplines.
