Explorer Labs Marsbound (6th-12th):In this engaging NASA-developed game, student engineering teams work to balance financial, mass, and power budgets while planning a mission to the Red Planet. Greatest scientific gains and most efficient use of funds will identify which team is declared top mission planners! MarsboundÔnaturally draws on student collaboration and communication, making this an excellent activity for secondary students.
Change the Current (6th) With its largest energy production plant offline, Colorado Springs Utilities needs help to keep the city from going dark. Taking into consideration energy resources, budget, and environmental impact, student teams will compete to create the best plan to win the contract to “power up” Colorado Springs.
Sphero Robotics (4th-12th) Students experience a crash course in programming with these interactive, eye-catching, and programmable robots. Utilizing an endless array of coding capabilities, teams will work together to complete an epic and educational programming challenge they won’t soon forget.
Wonder Workshop Robotics (K-12th) Wonder Workshop Robots encourage tomorrow's out-of-the-box innovators! Students will test their engineering, problem-solving and computations-thinking skills during this drag and drop programming sessions - using Dash and Cue robots- to solving a series of problems leading up to one, monumental challenge!
Extraordinaires Design Studio (4th-12th) Empathize. Define. Ideate. Prototype. Test…The design thinking process is a Makerspace method that encourages everyone to be part of developing a more desirable future for all.Join us as we challenge your students to conceptualize and create a project that will improve the life of some very unique characters. Creative thinking, problem solving, and teamwork are required!
Breakout Boxes (6th-12th) Do your students have what it takes to solve a space-themed mystery and escape the room? Using critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and communication, along with an amped up version of Breakout BoxesÔ, students learn aerospace content, practice collaboration and problem-solving skills and challenge their teamwork in this timed and entertaining session.
