Technology Workshops for Children
The Department of Engineering Technology offers summer workshops to children, ages 9-14, which allow them to explore different areas of technology with hands-on experiences. PSU faculty conduct the workshops within the laboratories and classrooms of the Kansas Technology Center.
Once again this year we are running the Robotics Workshop back to back with the Construction and Plastics workshops. The Robotics Workshop will run in the morning and the Construction and Plastics Workshops in the afternoon.
We will provide a supervised place to eat lunch for students that want to attend both afternoon and morning sessions. Those planning on staying during the lunch hour will need to bring a sack lunch.
The price is $90.00 for each Robotics and Construction session students wish to attend. If students want to participate in the full week of both activities, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., the total would be $180.00 for the week.
