Engineering For Kids Denver
Welcome to Engineering for Kids for Denver Metro and Surrounding Areas
invent. innovate. create. engineer.
We put the excitement in S.T.E.M. education by offering age appropriate, inquiry based, hands-on-learning for children ages 6 to 14 through FUN activities with LEGO® EV3 Mindstorm and WEDO robotics, engineering workshops and video game designing.
We offer the most comprehensive Engineering Enrichment Program!
SouthGlenn Location - After School Programs:
Minecraft Edu & Robotics Workshop - we've combined our two favorite workshops into one six week session! Each session includes 3 exciting workshops in Minecraft Coding and Team Challenges (all equipment is provided for the class) and 3 sessions in Master level and Junior Robotics - where students will learn basic robot design and visual programming to complete specific and fun challenges. Students have the option to work alone or in teams (of 2 students) in robotics class.
No experience necessary, although if you have experience, our instructors will work with you to ensure you are learning and expanding your skill set.
Two distinctly separate Sessions will be offered in Fall and Winter. The sessions are independent (one is not the prerequisite from the other, and all content is new.)
Students will be divided into 2 general age groups: 6 - 7 & 8 - 12
Thursdays, Aug 24 - Sep 28 or Fridays, Aug 25 - Oct 6 (no class 9/1)
Thursdays, Nov 2 - Dec 14, or Fridays, Nov 3 - Dec 15 (no classes Thanksgiving week.)
Don't miss this great opportunity to combine Engineering Experiences in Minecraft Edu - with real world Robotics builds, challenges and programming!
Enroll in One-Week Camps, Monday - Friday. After care is available for all Camps for an extra fee.
Each camp will be divided by age & experience level to ensure that students have the chance to work with kids who are similar age. No previous experience is required for camps, although instructors will make general adjustments to challenges to meet the experience levels and interest of the kids in each Camp.
Camp hours: 8:30am - 3:30pm (aftercare is available until 5:30pm)
Camp age groups: 5 - 6 Junior Camps & 7 - 12 Minecraft & Engineering Camps (students in the 7 - 12 age group will be further divided into small groups according to age and experience level.)
Dates: Week 1: Oct 9 - 13 | Week 2: Oct 23 - 27
At Engineering for Kids, Campers program and construct robots, build fun and educational Engineering Projects, program arcade and video games, and/or learn STEM basics through Minecraft Education challenges.
Robotics: Campers will experience the best in robotics design and visual programming through our Robotics Camp. Experienced instructors will lead campers through solving real-world based problems and overcome fun challenges with the robot.
Minecraft EDU: This camp will immerse students in the expansive world of Minecraft, Students will learn how to use teamwork and manage resources like an engineer in the real world all without the risks associated with building structures in reality.
Engineering: Campers explore Engineering through hands-on building of projects in areas of Civil, Mechanical, Aerospace, Chemical and Electrical Engineering. Campers will build and take home launchers, catapults, LED games, bottle rockets and more (projects vary according to age.)
DETAILS.. DETAILS... DEAILS...Fall Camps - (weekly camps):
In Engineering Fall Break Camps - kids will have the opportunity to explore and learn about the world of robotics, programming and engineering. Each camp is tailored to small groups and kids close in grade and age. Each camper can drive their own exploration and learn in the way that they feel most comfortable.
Each week of camp is different and will include a half day of technology programs and a half day of engineering programs. Cost is $424 per week and, if requested, an additional $75 per week for after care, until 5:30pm.
Daily lunch is NOT provided.

Other Engineering For Kids ProgramsMinecraft Edu Club (postponed until Spring 2018):
Every weekend, students can learn and play in the world of MinecraftEdu. It's where virtual engineering meets education. MinecraftEdu instructors create challenges and Minecraft Edu worlds that excite and challenge kids to think. Each weekend, we tackle a new opportunity to learn about engineering, math, science, physics - kids can be creative, play and most importantly - build!
Home School & After School Programs (postponed until Spring 2018):
Kids ages 5 - 14 interested in Engineering can join us during the day or after school for weekly workshops. We host 90 minute sessions, where kids can explore engineering, robotics and programming.

Science | Technology | Engineering | MathOpportunities to learn STEM subjects are all around us - in so many things that we do. Our goal is to help you prepare your child for STEM subjects. We encourage kids to learn difficult subjects through exploration of fun, hands-on projects and experiments. We help you move "beyond the book" and help your kids build a strong identity and connection to STEM subjects.
Our incredible instructors are Engineers or thriving Engineering Students from top Engineering Schools in Colorado. Changing lives and inspiring the next generation of engineers!
