Hang out online. Explore engineering.
Connect kids with their passions... and each other.

What could be better?

The Engineering Clubhouse is full of opportunities to explore science, math, and engineering in the real world. All clubs will meet online via video conference. Your kids will have fun learning, make real connections with other kids who share their interests, and grow in their understanding of what engineers actually do. We will get our hands on real materials to create real projects and discover the real process of solving engineering problems.

Check out the Spring 2018 clubs! All clubs meet online via video conference.

Target ages: 8-12
Cost: $20 per student

Young Engineers' Society (Target ages 8-12)

In the Young Engineers' Society, students will discover how engineers use the engineering design process to solve problems. This club meets twice a month. During the first meeting, students will brainstorm and plan their solution to the month's design challenge. During the second meeting, students will share their creations. We will do things like build bridges that can hold 10 toy cars, design completely edible towers, and craft paper airplanes capable of putting on an airshow. In January, we will design shoes made entirely out of cardboard and duct tape. Club dates:
  • Sundays, January 14 and 21, 2018 at 6:00 PM Eastern

All About Electronics (Target ages 11-15)

Students will discover the ins and outs of electronics projects by learning about how to design and build circuits. This club meets once a month and supports learners completing Creation Crate projects. It's highly recommended that students have a subscription to Creation Crate to ensure that everyone is working with the same components; know that we'll definitely be going beyond the box! Occasionally, we will explore other electronics projects. January features a custom project; we will investigate the electronic components found in video game controllers. Club dates:

Cost: $20 per student

Engineering Problem Solvers (Target ages 14-18)

Engineering Problem Solvers dedicate themselves to thinking critically about significant problems facing society. We will research and explore real challenges such as sustainability, infrastructure improvements, water usage, and energy. This club meets twice a month. During the first meeting, students will seek to understand how a particular problem impacts society and explore what engineers are doing to address these problems. During the second meeting, students will come prepared to debate different courses of action. In January, we will research and debate information security and privacy in an age of social media. Club dates:
  • Mondays, January 15 and 22, 2018 at 6:00 PM Eastern

February Film: Hidden Figures
Cost: $18 per family

Science on the Screen (Target ages vary depending on the movie of the month)

In Science on the Screen, we'll investigate whether movies are scientifically sound. Could you use helium balloons to lift a house like in Up? How did Katherine Johnson, Mary Jackson, and Dorothy Vaughn of Hidden Figures help NASA land astronauts on the moon? Is it possible to make slime that can dance like in Flubber? Each month will feature a different movie that students should watch before coming to the club. During club time, we'll roll up our sleeves to conduct our own experiments! The movie for February is Hidden Figures. Club dates:
  • Friday, February 2, 2018 at 7:00 PM Eastern
  • Thursday, February 8, 2018 at 6:00 AM Eastern
  • Monday, February 12, 2018 at 2:00 PM Eastern
