Holiday Camp: Engineering a Metropolis (Grades 1-3)

Holiday Camp: Engineering a Metropolis (Grades 1-3)

Help us discover the inner urban planner in your child as we engineer a metropolis! In this camp kids explore what it takes to create a metropolitan area with the goal of developing skills to design their own city of choice. From street layouts and building placement to power source identification, campers learn about the challenges that architects, engineers, and urban designers face when building cities from scratch. How will we light our street lamps? Let’s learn about hydroelectric power and build a working model of a dam out of clay! How will we cross the rivers that surround our island city? Let’s use popsicle sticks and glue to simulate bridges that traverse these wide spans.

After a break for lunch we'll head outside to stretch our legs and explore the nearby Museum of Natural History!
