Class Experience

Engineers play an essential role in our everyday lives; in this course, we will learn the basics of engineering and how engineering impacts our daily lives.

Students will learn about the engineering design process in our engineering class and how that contributes 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 materials easily found at home 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 experiences 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 materials to have available during the classes: Scissors Tape (strong) Glue Colored pencils/markers Copy/construction paper Construction bricks Hot glue gun (optional) Small compass (optional) Cardboard Toilet or kitchen paper roll Paper towels Aluminum foil Nail (3in longer) D battery Balloons Insulated copper wire Bottle caps Popsicle sticks Rubber bands (wide) Coffee stirrers or wood skewers Straws Paper clips
