Class Experience

Engineers play an important role in our everyday lives; in this course, we will be learning the basics of engineering and how simple machines impact our everyday life.

In our Engineering class, students will learn about four engineering fields and how those fields contribute to everyday life.

In this course, students will put on their engineering caps and test their abilities by creating different projects related to the engineering field discussed for the day.

Students will learn that being an engineer starts as a model and will create model designs using everyday household items to complete projects. 

With the instructor's guide, students will learn that they, too, can be a part of the engineering process if they are willing to try. 
Bright & Smart was founded in 2005. We have been teaching and developing our programs for the past 15 years. We create our programs with students' learning experience in mind; we want them to learn to love STEM. To develop their higher cognitive skills and natural abilities, we help them see themselves as technology creators. 
Students will be allowed to continue to improve their projects in between meetings.  At the beginning of every class, students may present their projects and their improvements in the process. 
Suggested household materials to have available during the classes:
Colored pencils/crayons
Copy/construction paper
Legos or construction blocks
Bottle caps*
Popsicle sticks*
Rubber bands*
Wood skewers*
Paper clips*

*We have put together a box containing the materials marked with a *for the 4-week projects. You have the option to purchase it from us if you find it easier than looking around the house. Price: $12 (shipping included in the continental USA).
If you desire to order this materials box, please visit our website to place the order.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No assessment will be administered. This class allows students to challenge themselves to think outside the box and place themselves in engineers' minds.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
