ClubZOOM Engineering

ClubZOOM engineering is built around five different ZOOM activities that are designed to inspire kids, ages 8-12, to invent, build, brainstorm, tinker, design, and work together. ZOOM is a daily PBS television show, Web site, and educational outreach campaign that motivates kids to become actively involved with the world. ZOOM features a diverse cast of seven kids who bring to life activities sent in by viewers from across the country.

The ClubZOOM Engineering program is centered on five engineering challenges. These fun-filled activities teach the girls that engineering is about exploring multiple solutions and solving problems. The activities are divided into steps to mirror this process: Get Started (define the problem and start thinking of solutions), Design & Build, Test, Redesign, and Share Results.
