WHAT TO EXPECT
Each day you will join hands-on team based fun projects and apply your creativity to solving real-life engineering challenges, as you
- design a mechanical hand
- create a watercraft to explore buoyancy
- harness sustainable energy with a wind turbine
- explore current multiplied by voltage to give power
- do much more
Throughout the week, you will also
- Tour engineering labs at a local college.
- Experience TMLA’s 3D printer at work; learn how it functions.
- Marvel at TMLA Robotic team’s projects in TMLA Engineering lab.
On Friday’s End-of-Program Celebration, families and friends are invited to watch students present their design projects and what they have learned during the week.
Engineers help shape the future.
Engineering unleashes the spirit of innovation.
Engineers constantly discover ways to improve our lives.
TMLA hopes to foster your natural curiosity and encourage the spirit of innovation to engage with the many challenges of our time.
