Liftoff! Engineering Rovers and Rockets
Ages: Rising Grades 2–5
Instructor: Jennifer Wagar, Science and Math Teacher
Weeks available: Week 4
Sessions available: Full Day ($299)

Aerospace engineers at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory design technologies that can explore inside and outside of the Earth’s atmosphere. Rockets and rovers are two examples of aerospace technology kids will engineer to "explore" several planets and moons in our solar system. Kids will ultimately launch rockets using stomp-rocket launchers.





A Slippery Slope: Engineering an Avalanche Protection System
Ages: Rising Grades 2–5
Instructor: Jennifer Wagar, Science and Math Teacher
Weeks available: Week 5
Sessions available: Full Day ($299)

Avalanche engineering is the design of technologies that stop or direct the flow of avalanches. Many towns in the Andes Mountains are in danger from potential avalanches. Kids will use what they learn from designing barriers and catches to engineer an avalanche protection system for a Peruvian town. Avalanche engineers strategically place these technologies on mountains to protect structures and people who use the area for shelter and/or recreation.
