Engineering Expectations

Engineering Expectations Invites You to Engage Your Mind!

Engineering Expectations is designed to hook kids on engineering by engaging them in creative thinking and out-of-the-box problem solving. We use a project based learning philosophy and have students complete hands-on engineering challenges through the use of the engineering design cycle. We help students learn and grow by integrating their knowledge from their math and science classes and help them apply it to an engineering problem. In addition to engineering, our students will learn and apply 21st century skills such as critical thinking, creativity, communication, collaboration, and cross-disciplinary thinking.

Our Saturday programs have a different topic each month and serve to be an introduction to the engineering design process and what problems engineers might work to solve. Our summer programs tackle different types of projects depending on the theme of the camp. We hope that by the time students have completed our programs, they will feel confident in their engineering abilities, understand what engineers really do, and want to come back to learn more!
