Engineering for Kids offering STEM Based Summer Camps at Primavera in Chandler. Announces Summer Camp Open House on May 17th

What is East Valley Engineering for Kids?

Engineering for Kids is an enrichment program that teaches concepts on a variety of engineering fields in classes and camps for kids’ ages 4-14. We want to spark an interest in the kids for science, technology and engineering. The camps are all themes based and require the kids to work in teams to address engineering challenges and problems. All programs meet national education standards for STEM and align with Common Core for math and science. Engineering for Kids has operated since 2009, is in 26 states and 4 countries.

 When and what is the open house for?

The open house on May 17th is an opportunity for parents to come and see the facility, meet the staff from Engineering for Kids, and get their questions answered. The summer camps will be offered at Primavera Blended Learning Center at 2451 N. Arizona Avenue in Chandler. The open house is from 11 am to 3 pm.  From 1-2 pm we’re having our popular robotics workshop where the kids will build, program, test and improve the robots. At the end of the workshop, the kids will compete against each other in a Sumo Bot tournament. An RSVP is highly recommended as seating is limited. Please email your RSVP to eastvalley@engineeringforkids.net.

 What is Primavera Blended Learning Center?

 The center opened in August of 2013 to serve Primavera’s Online Middle School students for hands on lab and STEM based projects for students. Engineering for Kids and Primavera share a common goal of bringing hands on learning experiences to kids that help bridge the gap between concepts learned in the classroom and how they might apply in real life situations.

 What summer camps are offered?

We have full-day and half-day camps for kids’ ages 4-14. Camps are split up in the following age groups: 4-6. 7-11, and 12-14. Extended care is available if needed. There is a 12 to 1 student to teacher ratio for ages 7-11 and a 6 to 1 student to teacher ratio for ages 4-6. The kids will learn concepts, practical application and knowledge of how to apply science and math to real life situations.  For the full summer camp schedule and more information, visit www.engineeringforkids.com/eastvalley.
