"Our daughter had a terrific week at the Summer Rocket Blast Off. It looks like we'll be setting aside shop area for rocket building!" -Westford MA dad
A project based approach allows your child to own the science and apply it. They will develop skills in communication, teamwork, using tools, building, organizing, reading drawings, coding, programming, measuring, estimating, sketching, observing, asking questions, recording data, simulating designs on a computer and troubleshooting. The engineering design process is taught via examples, stories, individual projects and team projects. Consideration is given for safety, economy, form, function, quality control and ethics.
"Edge on Science takes science off the page and puts it into the hands of your child." -Rondalyn Whitney, mom
