Inspiring Future Engineers!

CREATEng, a one-of-a-kind, four-day immersion into engineering and design-based thinking for rising 8th & 9th graders, is delivered in satellite locations across the state. Working in teams, students engage in a problem-based curriculum where they apply principles of engineering design to solve daily challenges.

CREATEng students:

  • Compete in team-based, hands-on challenges, such as: designing blades for a wind turbine, cleaning up from an oil spill, designing a dam, creating a flinker, or constructing a parachute
  • Interact with engineers on-site and during field trips
  • Develop engineering skills: problem solving, teamwork, data analysis, communication and innovation
  • Build creative confidence
