You Dream It! You Design It! You Build It! You Test It!
Join us for a fun-filled day of learning disguised as play! At this year's Extravaganza, your future engineer will…
- Build an Egg Protector to Survive the Giant Egg Drop - Design & test parachutes to protect the magical chicks that could save the world
- Clear the Valley of Poisonous Snakes - Construct extending grabbers & capture the snakes
- Craft Paper Circuits - Use our templates or design your own to create sparkling paper circuits
- Build a Bristlebot - Design and race your own bristle robot
- Create a Cork Shooter to Shoo away Angry Birds - Build and test fire your own cork shooter
- Build a Boat to Paddle Down our River - Create and race your paddle boat
- Design & Fly the Coolest Paper Airplanes - Then, compete to fly the farthest or most acrobatically
- Fabricate a Triangle Slinger - And, then take it out for target practice
- Build a LEGO City - Help us create the coolest LEGO city ever!
Move from station-to-station, building cool things all day long with our fun and wacky technical mentors, or settle in and work on a project for hours. Join us for the day or only for an hour. We provide the challenges, the supplies and the engineering guidance; you build whatever you can dream. Your imagination is the only limit!
This fun event is for the entire family. Kids from 5 to 13 will particularly love it. And, it provides all-day fun for less than the cost of a movie!
Our wonderful sponsors make this event possible. Black & Veatch provides critical funding for the supplies, and the UMKC Planning Design Students provides the space for the event. Our thanks to everyone involved!
