Calling all young engineers!  Have you ever wondered how a catapult or trebuchet works, or how a cannon is fired?  This class will explore the science of simple machines and the benefits they provide.  Students will build several machines from scratch to replicate the construction of ancient structures.  If you enjoy working with your hands, this is the class for you!

About Your Extraordinary Saturday (YES)

For 1st – 4th Grade Students

A New Adventure Every Weekend

MITY's program for elementary students enables inquisitive, high achieving 1st - 4th grade students to continue learning outside of the traditional classroom.  Courses are intentionally designed to inspire inquiry, activate imaginations, and engage eager learners in hands on discovery that is not possible within a regular classroom setting.  While students are in class, parents are invited to listen to professional speakers on topics related to raising bright children, socialize with other parents, or visit a local coffee shop.
