How do cranes hoist heavy things? How did the car move? All types of engineering and technical problems can be answered in Sparks’ Machines and Mechanisms class through children’s own practice. Students build models by hand and create unique designs, and in the long-term project of the class, also envision and create a “future product” from an understanding of the needs of the real world. The Machines and Mechanisms course empowers children to develop their engineering, teamwork, and creativity skills through fun and engaging activities.
