What's Included

Get out your hard hat! It’s time to put some materials to the test – stretch ‘em, soak ‘em, crush ‘em, then build! We will learn some basic engineering design principles, visit a variety of structures in the city, then use what you learned to design, create, test, and refine basic structures – with a tree house in the park being our final result!
