Lafayette, Colorado – Learning comes alive this summer (and away from computer screens) with activities that encourage hands-on exploration and critical thinking skills – plus playtime in the Museum! This summer class series gives children in Grades 1st-3rd an exciting and informative insight into engineering. Centered on the engineering method, each session focuses on a different field: Civil, Aerospace, Electrical, Chemical/Biomedical, and Environmental Engineering. Classes are held weekly on Fridays for 5-weeks, July 9 to August 6, and are limited to 15 children per class.
