Class List and Description

Class A: Bridge Building 101

Bridge Building 101 explores how engineering has impacted the development of bridges over time, including innovative designs and the challenge of creating bridges that become landmarks for a city. Students will work in teams of “engineers” to design and build their own bridge out of toothpicks and gumdrops. They test their bridges using weights, evaluate their results and present their findings to the class. This class is limited to a capacity of 30 students per session, per presenter request.

Class B: Making MOOLA from Agriculture!

Students will be introduced to the use of budgets to determine potential net income for an enterprise using agricultural examples. How products are sold for money, how this money is then used to pay production expenses and how the remaining is considered “Profit” (net income). Exercise should provide students with an appreciation of how money is made in production agriculture using a tool that can apply to many other business endeavors.

Class C: Eat Smart, Play Hard.

Students will learn about eating right and exercising right. This class will offer a variety of physical and nutritional activities.

Class D: Drone Discovery

Explore how drone engineering and remote sensing can be used to solve real world problems. Think like an engineer as you design, build and test drones. 17

Class E: Lessons About Money!

Students will learn about financial concepts such as making money, choosing a job, saving money, the concept of interest, wants vs. needs and other relevant topics

Class F: Day In The Life Of A Police Officer

This class will explain the role a police officer plays in the community. Not only are police officers there to protect citizens, but also to help them and be strong role models. 17

Class G: Being A Firefighter!

Did you know that a firefighter responds to all calls such as: fire, hazardous waste, EMS calls, vehicle extraction, confined space emergencies and high angle rope rescue, to mention a few. In this class, you will learn about this occupation and see the equipment that is used! 

Class H: WIRED: Using Tools To Make Keychains

Students will get to use tools that electricians and plumbers use every day to make a cool keychain.

Class I: See Tracks? Think Train!

Nearly every 3 hours, someone is struck by a train in the U.S. During this presentation, students will learn the skills they need to safely walk, bike, skate, or ride near the railroad tracks. Students will also learn where it’s safe to play, where it’s not, and what they need to do when they get to a crossing.

Class J: Exploring Electricity!

In this class, you will hook up various electrical devices and make them work. 

Class K: Everything You Wanted To Know About Being A Teacher.

In this class, you will learn about a career as a classroom teacher and the other opportunities, such as becoming a librarian or counselor.
