The Neenah Joint School District will host an Engineering Exploration summer program for students presently in kindergarten through fifth grade. The weeklong program will teach a variety of different engineering skills in a fun learning environment.
The program runs from July 14-18 from 8:30-11:30 a.m. each day in the manufacturing and engineering tech wing at Neenah High School. Classes will be divided into grades K-2 and 3-5 with a cap of 25 students per class. Instructors will be Neenah High School technology and engineering teacher Tony White and Hoover Elementary teaching aide Maripat Franke. The cost of the progam is $20 per student.
Students will learn the engineering design process and create their own puzzle cube. They will also do a scientific investigation where they mix and evaluate their own polymer compounds. Students will explore the structure and function of different materials while solving design challenges, and participate in several unique engineering challenges such as an egg drop, marble roller coaster, paddleboat, zip-line and structures. The students will keep a notebook of all their activities for their own learning and to share with their parents.
In order to enroll, parents should fill out the registration form on the flyer and submit it by May 18 to Phil Johnson, Principal at Roosevelt and Alliance Elementary. Johnson will also be available to answer any questions about the program by calling 751-6970 ext. 102.
