Science Workshops

Curriculum-based science topics

This science workshop for schools was developed by a qualified Aerospace Engineer with experience in the industry. The workshop will help students further their understanding of science topics that are already taught in school classrooms. It is engaging and hands-on. Schools can choose from a mix of different science activities. A half-day workshop will include at least 2 practical activities.

Problem Solving

Students will learn about bridge engineering by building KNEX models. They will construct a beam bridge to stand a specific load. Additionally, students will learn how engineers can strengthen a bridge by adding trusses to the structure.
