This program teaches your children the link between money and work, saving, spending, sharing and giving back.

In Level 1, your child will “earn” income through fun role-playing activities. Then, they learn how to deposit, save, and earn interest in their own pretend bank account at our unique Walter’s FUNtastic Bank. Money math is based on 10’s and 100’s so they can relate values - $1, $10, $100 - to the real world. Just as importantly, your child learns about giving back through volunteerism.

Level 2 continues to build by adding $5, $50, $500 to the money math. Kids learn about life's basic needs—and what they cost. They get to play at doing a job, earning money from it, and watching their account at Walter’s FUNtastic Bank grow and earn interest. They even learn to make withdrawals and experience grocery shopping.

Investigating energy sources and material selection

Energy is very important for our daily lives... and for robots too! But energy is not always readily available or clean to make. Learn about different sources of energy by building several powered robots. Learn how energy is generated and measured, and the challenges associated with each technology. Energy can also be saved by selecting better materials and finding creative ways to save weight. Test the properties of both classical and advanced materials, and select the best ones to build exciting aerospace projects! Join us to empower your creations like never before!

Design and build top performing robots by optimizing efficiency!

Energy can be stored to be used when and where we need it. This is especially important for robots that are on the move. They require on-board energy source to power its motors and on-board computers. Robots can also make use of stored energy and springs to preform various functions, and to walk and stay balanced. But every time we convert energy from one form to another, energy is lost. How much is lost? That is when we need to look at how efficient our robots and machines can be. Are there ways we can even recapture energy from the environment to increase run times? In this course students will build a number of devices and robots that make use of energy conversion. Come explore solar power robots, wind power robots, battery powered robots and even Human powered robots!
