IMG_8049Over the summer the CEEO hosted 11 different workshops for children age five to eighteen.  For younger students there were workshops that focused on exploring engineering while helping out characters from their favorite PBS shows and also learning the engineering design process through stories, songs and hands-on activities.  There was a session of Girls Design and Engineering Workshop where the students explored topics of simple electronics, human factors, programming, robotics, and user-centered design, focusing on engineering but also paying attention to the client.

IMG_1461Engineering Around the World was a new topic offered this summer and throughout the week the students explored science and engineering while learning about countries around the world, the problems they face.  The students then worked together to develop solutions.  Pet Helpers was another new topic and in this workshop children explored different ways in which engineering can be used to help animals that people love and care for.  Children used the engineering design process through a combination of robotic and non-robotic activities.  For the older students High School Robotics was offered.  In this workshop the students explored new technologies, such as Arduino and Raspberry Pi, and pursued their own design interests, such as wearable devices and custom circuit boards.  We had a very busy and fun child filled summer at the CEEO!
