This workshop for girls in grades 2-5 will be a hands-on afternoon of fun as participants build, create, and solve engineering problems together.

At this Novel Engineering* workshop, we will read a story, and then participants will use information from the text as a resource to plan and build a solution to the character’s problem.

This workshop will be led by Alisa Berger – Director of the Lower School and author of How to Innovate: The Essential Guide for Fearless School Leaders, Claire Caine – Information Technology Administrator, and Samara Hendin – 5th grade teacher.

*Novel Engineering is an integrated approach to teach engineering and literacy. As part of Novel Engineering, students use literature as a basis for an engineering design challenge, drawing from the text to identify and solve engineering problems in books by considering characters as clients, and using details from the story to impose constraints.
