Cancelled Due to Low Enrollment  The Power of Making and Engineering in the Classroom – Wentzville Location

Imagine. Design. Create. Repeat. During this academy, participants will become “makers” and tap into their innate building abilities. Participants will safely use high- and low-tech tools, specialty supplies and everyday classroom/household materials to produce creations and innovations. The engineering design process will be employed in a variety of STEM projects. We will tour Ranken’s state-of-the-art laboratories, engage in hands-on activities, and explore potential community partnerships. Research-based learning strategies will be utilized to demystify STEM education concepts, empowering educators to positively impact students’ perceptions of STEM pathways and career choices.
