Fun, original, and exciting collection of project-based engineering lessons for kids.
If you enjoy these projects, then I encourage you to buy my book, Rubber Band Engineer. It's a full-color-photo book full of more project plans that range from the surprisingly simple to the curiously complex, and some have their roots right here at Instructables.
These project-based lessons focus on basic principles of physics, structural, and mechanical engineering. Physical models are built from a similar set of materials that can be easily sourced online (links are provided in-lesson).
All of the project plans in this collection are designed to be used in an after school enrichment setting, though you may use and modify these ideas for other not-for-profit purposes provided you cite The Workshop for Young Engineers.
This is a growing and improving collection of lesson plans. Please comment to share your ideas to improve lessons and photos of your designs.
