Engineering Expectations Invites You to Engage Your Mind

Engineering Expectations is an innovative program at UNCW that teaches elementary and middle school students problem solving skills by giving them unique engineering challenges. Students not only learn science and engineering but also communication skills, creativity, optimism, collaboration, and tenacity. Through experiential learning, students take home the knowledge and confidence they gained through our program and sometimes even a small project they built themselves! Join us on Saturdays as we give your child the skills to succeed in engineering and life!

Saturday programs for Fall Semester Coming Soon!

Programs will be held in the Natural Science Trailer. Please see grid 3C on the campus map.

Please register for the correct age using the link below:

  • Engineering Explorations Programs (ages 6-7 & 8-9) Link Coming Soon
  • Engineering Expectations Programs (ages 10-11 & 12-14) Link Coming Soon

Activities are age-differentiated for each group and encourage creative problem solving using the engineering design process.

If you signed up for the semester series option and you are concerned that you will miss one of the programs, please note that we can package some of the activities with instructions for students to do at home. We can make these packets available to you the week after the program has taken place (you will need to pick them up from campus).

Get your mind in gear with Engineering Expectations!
