@Gorski, I totally agree with you on the issue of similar experiences being brought to schools. It is unfortunate though that the GoEngineer team may not have the time or personell to visit individual schools so this approach gives them much larger outreach and let them inspire the engineering spark in the young ones. Keep up the great work!!

GoEngineer Kid’s camps

In many aspects, the brain of a kid can be compared to that of the ideal engineer. The 3D printing example brings this out best. Unlike older people who will simply marvel at a mchine that can print a pencil just like that, these kids grow up hearing 3D and are not amazed anymore. They want to push the technology to do more awesome stuff. I hope the engineers at the sites learnt this too from the kids.

This is a great idea to spark interest in engineering. Young minds are open to many new ideas and this is a good way to show kids what engineering can do. There should be more camps like this. Can they be also done on schools?

Scientific and engineering history is evident everywhere you look in our modern world, and there are a plethora of institutions, museums, facilities and other places that celebrate science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) ideas and innovations.

While many would balk at the idea of robots looking after children not many could argue against robots educating the younger generation to code. After all, the world they are growing up in depends on it, and it’s still not -- for the most part -- being taught or mandated in schools. There’s even an argument to be made that computer literacy is becoming as important in today’s world as traditional literacy.
