Each class period will focus on a different discipline of engineering, with stations and hands on projects to foster exploration and discovery. On the last day of the program, parents are invited to visit our "maker space" to examine our projects from the prior week, as well as participate themselves! If you enjoyed past GEM offerings such as Get Charged or Artful Architecture, this may be the course for you!
