Join Fay School faculty members for free, hands-on innovation workshops, designed for children ages 8-12. The workshops will take place on the Fay campus in Southborough and are a great way to learn more about engineering and design thinking.

The following 2 hour sessions are each limited to 10 students:

Balloon Flying Saucers
Ages 8-12

The year is 2069. Your mission: to create a vehicle that runs on nothing but air. Your challenge is to figure out the best way to design and implement this ambitious idea in the real world! Join us as we design and create hovercrafts and then refine them to maximize distance and speed. Students will learn about design and scientific processes, explore the mathematics behind calculating speed, and race to see who can make the fastest vehicle!

Moose on the Move: Build Your Own Boat!
Ages 8-12

Your mission: to propel a moose (don’t worry, a small toy moose, not a live one!) across a body of water without touching the moose itself! Join Fay teachers Emily McCauley and Katie Buteau for an action-packed design-and-build activity where you’ll learn about flotation, propulsion, and how to iterate and improve your invention!

Space Suit Design Challenge
Ages 8-12

Get ready, NASA….Fay’s designers are on the job! Your mission is to design a spacesuit that can help maintain the body temperature of an astronaut in the extreme heat and cold of outer space. You’ll be using water-filled “Space Worms” as test subjects that mimic the water composition of the adult human body. Build a budget, design and test your spacesuit, and get ready for a hands-on experience that’s out of this world!

Intro to Coding: Create Animations and Games
Ages 9-12

Learn the fundamentals of coding and how to create your own animations and games in this introduction to Processing, a free and flexible software sketchbook and coding language. We’ll also be working with LEGO SPIKE Prime sets to help students understand how to create a structured sequence of programming activities in a real-world context.
