Innovate. Design. Create.

CREATEng is GSSM’s one-of-a-kind engineering and design thinking day camp for rising 7th, 8th and 9th graders. In CREATEng, students take on the role of NASA engineers charged with developing a sustainable colony on Mars. Working through project-based, hands-on team challenges, students learn what engineering is and what engineers do. With a focus on civil, biomedical, and aerospace engineering students work through a series of mini challenges from building windproof structures to protecting human life from the harsh environment of outer space.

CREATEng students will interact with guest speakers and go on a field trip to a local company to see engineering in action.
