Is your student inquisitive, a problem-solver, a big-thinker, a tinkerer, a puzzler, a LEGO® lover, or a budding engineer? This program gives your student the tools they need to understand mechanical movement through the foundations of simple machines, physics, and engineering design. They will see moving parts up-close as they follow instructions to build various machines, then use the models to develop new design ideas, test out physics concepts, and even play games with their virtual and classmates. Whether they are the creative-constructive type or prefer the inquisitive-deductive way of learning, this program is sure to spark their interests! (Note: Families who are unable to pick-up and return the engineering kit from the MITY office will be required to pay shipping fees.)
About Online ExplorSchool
For Students In Grades 5 – 8
MITY’s Online ExplorSchool provides bright students with the opportunity to explore a topic of interest with similarly motivated peers. The goal is to keep students challenged and engaged as they build, create, and solve real world problems. Each class features a variety of activities that take students away from a screen as they use their hands to design and construct. Importantly, students also have opportunities to socialize with their peers through non-academic activities.
