Hands-on learning awaits...

Do you know a girl in grades 5-8 who is interested in engineering? Young Engineers of Today, with support from the Society of Information Managers (SIM), is offering a program at SciWorks to allow girls in grades 5-8 to explore programming and engineering. Students will use 3D Printers, Raspberry Pi computers and more to program games, create electronic trees and make wearable computers.

The cost of this program is normally $492; however SIM support means you can enroll your daughter for just $50 ($442 savings).  This includes all the materials needed for class.  Scholarships are available for families who cannot afford the $50. For more information, visit http://www.youngengineersoftoday.com/spring-sim-class.html or call (980) 224-0430.

What the  Students Use:

  • 3D Printers
  • Arduinos – microprocessor
  • Little Bits
  • Raspberry Pi – microcomputers
  • Scratch
  • SketchUp
  • Snap Circuits
  • Tinkercad

Spring Semester Topics:

  • 3D Printing
  • Computer-aided Design
  • Electronics
  • Programming
  • Raspberry Pi
  • Robotics
  • Wearable computing


Classes start January 20 and end May 16, 2015.  Labs start January 24, 2015.   Payment plans are available.

This class is a hybrid program, meeting for a total of 48 hours over the course of four months.  Students will meet at SciWorks in Winston-Salem every other week for two hours to work on projects.  In addition to these labs, students will meet online twice a week with a live instructor, working on projects from home.  These webinars are recorded so your daughter can watch them at a later date.  Our instructors encourage students to contact them at any time via email or phone if they ever need assistance.  For further details and to apply for this program, please visit youngengineersoftoday.com.
