UNCW’s Youth Programs is offering Engineering and Robotics programs for four different age groups and three MarineQuest options for ages 7-14 this fall.

Engineering Explorations (ages 6-7 & 8-9) and Engineering Expectations (ages 10-11 & 12-14) encourage creative problem solving using the engineering design process. Each month will have a different theme that presents a unique problem to the students that they will use engineering to solve along with applying their science, technology and mathematics knowledge.
