Spring After School Classes Gr. 6-8 at Michigan Tech

Students in grades 6-8 are invited to take part in After School Science and Engineering Classes at Michigan Tech.

The six session program is called Taste of Tech and will meet on Mondays 4:00-5:30 pm from April 1 to May 13 (doesn’t meet April 22).

In addition to learning about the university…participants will explore possible future careers.

Each week, middle school students will visit a different lab on campus to learn about some really cool research and meet the scientists and engineers behind the scenes.

  • Investigate how engineers design buildings to withstand earthquakes
  • Learn how engineers are designing a way to use air bubbles to protect bridges in a stream simulation lab. 
  • Design a train system that avoids crashes! 
  • Meet a scientist seeking to stop a 1/2″ insect from destroying entire forests
  • Work with a chemist in the lab to discover how some liquids can corrode surfaces — using candy!
  • Test your driving skills (while talking on a cell phone!) in a real driving simulator

The cost is $90 per student and online registration is open until March 28th.
