ENGAGE The Science of Laser Tag (6th, 7th, 8th grade) Mondays Feb. 6 – Mar. 27, 2023

Have you ever played a game of laser tag? Have you ever wondered if you could get a perfect score in a laser tag game? In this course, participants will delve into the math, science and engineering skills needed to create the ultimate laser tag game. Join us and explore the science of laser tag as we study the behaviors of light, game theory, statistics, and battle strategies while designing and testing our very own laser tag game arena!

ENGAGE Robotics – Robotics (8th, 9th, 10th, grade) Wednesdays Feb. 8 – Mar. 15, 2023
Have you ever wanted to automate your life? Maybe make a task 1000 times easier with a gadget? Robotics is a part of everyday life, and brilliant young minds (like yours) are needed to operate and create these robots. Join us to learn about the wide range of robotics and how they are used, from online food delivery to soil sampling on distant planets. We will also go through the step-by-step process of how robots are designed and produced. Participants will then apply their new skills in engineering and knowledge of robotics to design and develop their own robotic solutions. 
ENGAGE Web Design (6th, 7th, 8th grade) Wednesdays Feb. 8 – Mar. 15, 2023

Have you ever wondered how websites are made? Do you know how easy it can be to design your own web page? In this course partnered with the SCGSSM Women in Computer Science club, we will learn about the different processes that go into making a website and explore HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Students will code and design their own websites exploring formats like personal blogs and interactive personality quizzes. No previous coding experience is needed!
