Summer College for Kids 2012

 

ACC’s 2012 Summer College for Kids!
170 Elm Street, Enfield CT
Programs for 1st – 8th Grades!!!!

All programs were designed off STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) principles and depending on the program chosen we will be teaching students concepts in:basic engineering principles, gearing and gear ratios, electric motors and energy, friction, forces, motion and aerodynamics, problem solving, communication skills,chemical reactions, temperature, polymers, viscosity, rate of flow, pressure, Newton’s Third Law of Physics and more... Most importantly we will be doing this all while making it fun to learn!
