Engineering

We know kids have a natural fascination with both building things and taking things apart. This curiosity is how our little explorers figure out how things work in the world. Safari Kid Engineering Camp guides this natural curiosity into more formal explorations using hands-on learning strategies and project-based learning. Safari Kid campers will discover the process of construction through our innovative engineering curriculum in which they will investigate a problem, imagine a solution, and then work to design, create, and improve it. As a result, our campers self-confidence will blossom as they begin to see themselves as creative problem solvers, while also developing inner strength in character through their perseverance and determination.
