Fifth Grade (12:30 - 4:00)
Recycled Racers - Explore the properties of a race car to design the ultimate racers made entirely of recycled materials.
To the Rescue - Severe flooding has cut people off from important supplies. Engineer “aid drop packages” that can be dropped from an aircraft, protect what’s inside, and are easy to find once they reach the ground.
In Good Hands - Learn about space hazards and help engineer part of a spacesuit for a new NASA mission!

Sixth Grade (12:30 - 4:00)
Testing the Waters - Life on Earth requires access to clean water, and as populations grow, the demand for water increases. Become a water resource engineer to design creative ways to reuse water.
Food For Thought - Ever wonder how ice cream gets to be so creamy and delicious? Find out for yourself as you engineer a process for making ice cream.
World’s Apart or M2M- How do scientists and engineers gather information from places in the solar system that are difficult to reach? Use the Engineering Design Process to design remote sensing devices that can help scientists learn about a newly discovered moon.
