Our Exploring series is a great way for young Techsplorers to find out firsthand how exciting science, technology, and engineering can be. We'll build towers, bridges, parachutes, catapults, and roller coasters. We’ll crash test cars, launch water bottle rockets, and design games with simple electric circuits. We’ll perform (safe) chemistry experiments and discover some surprising results. These classes have it all!

Discover firsthand the exciting world of biology and biomedical engineering. Learn the principles of the human body and explore the senses of vision, hearing, and touch (plus a secret sixth sense). Learn how to stay healthy and how assistive technologies help people every day. Design and build your own helmets, stethoscopes, robotic hands, and more. If you like learning how the body works and helping people, this class is for you!
Discover firsthand the exciting world of mechanical engineering! Learn about simple machines, experiment with sound waves, and explore gravity, buoyancy, energy, work, and friction. Design roller coasters, build catapults, and construct a crash-test vehicle. If you like things that move, hurling ping pong balls, and crashing into walls, this class is for you!
Discover firsthand the exciting world of aerospace engineering! Learn about Newton and his laws of motion, investigate how airplanes fly, and explore the forces of lift, weight, thrust, and drag. Design parachutes, build gliders, and launch bottle rockets. If you like activities that zoom and fly, this class is for you!
Discover firsthand the exciting world of civil engineering! Learn which shapes are the strongest and how to survive an earthquake. Design and construct towers, bridges, and cantilevers, and explore the forces of tension, compression, torsion, bending, and shear. If you like to build, this class is for you!
Discover firsthand the exciting world of electrical engineering! Learn how DC motors work, explore insulators and conductors, and investigate static electricity. Create electromagnets, build potato batteries, and design circuits. If you like activities that light up and buzz, this class is for you!
Discover firsthand the exciting world of chemistry and chemical engineering! Experiment with acids and bases and learn how to make a pH indicator out of simple household ingredients. Make invisible ink, create bubbles, explore the amazing properties of polymers, learn how to identify chemicals, and use the power of science to investigate a crime scene and find the culprit. If you like things that fizz and mixing up colorful concoctions, this class is for you!
