Architecture & Engineering STEM Camp at Launch (Grades 5-7)

Launch Math + Science Centers

Kidz Tips
  • Grades 5-7
  • Late Pick Up Available

Let’s build it up and break it down! Join us as our campers explore various aspects of architecture and civil engineering while dissecting the life cycle of a building of their choice. Upon deciding the function of their structure, our aspiring architects and engineers step through structural life cycle milestones ranging from design and scale model development, to construction, operation, and ultimately demolition. Along the way kids learn the scientific principles behind various topics including the geometry of supporting structures, types of construction materials, and elevator physics and functionality. The week wraps up with campers testing the physical limits of their structures – and then lining them up for the wrecking ball!

Additional topics include: Variations In Architectural Design, Plumbing and HVAC Systems, Earthquake Simulation/Structural Design, Construction Methods and Technology, Powering a Building

More Information:
