Today I’m honored to be guest posting over at STEMmom’s blog a great place to find fabulous science and STEM lessons and activities to do with your children if you are a parent, homeschooler, or teacher. She is hosting a blog hop to hear about how others are doing the Engineering Spy Challenge. So if you are doing the Engineering Spy Girls (or boys) challenge and you would like to link up your posts about the Challenge do so here and join the hop!

 It’s a blog hop, so you should not only be able to link up, but also include the linky on your site so people can “hop” from blog to blog! Let’s have some crazy engineering fun! :)

New Mission Out Today!

Have you joined the Engineering Spies? Girls and boys ages 4-12 and really any age will enjoy all these challenges as they solve open ended problems for their friends the spy puffs… and if that wasn’t enough each mission solved will win them a prize and notoriety. explanationwebGetting Started

Join the Revolution

Are you hitting the summer blahs? Are your kids bouncing off the walls? Do you want to get them excited about something? Watch the minute long trailer below…

How do you join the Engineering Spy Girls Summer Program?

  1. You don’t have to be a boy or a girl.
  2. Make yourself a Spy Puff. http://www.spypuffengineering.com/engineering-spy-girls/main-engineering-spy-girls-page/
  3. Do the first Mission. http://www.spypuffengineering.com/engineering-spy-girls/mission-1/
  4. Send in a picture of your completed mission to either Kelly (at) spypuffengineering.com or post it on our facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/kelly.learningthings .
  5. I will send you your spy goods with each completed mission. The first mission gets you a personal mission book and badge. You will receive a badge for each mission that you can put in your mission book. Your second mission gets you an official Engineering Spy ID and then your third mission gets you a spy decoder.
  6. You move up in the Engineering Spy firm as you continue to complete missions. There is a new Mission every Friday.

Engineering Spy Girls

Alright Moms and Dads it’s on! I’ve developed an “engineering” virtual camp for your girls (boys too) for the summer. You can read all about it at Spy Page. Here is a quick overview. Your kids pretend to be the Engineering Spy Geniuses that help out these little Spy puffs. The puffs go out into the field doing missions and they need your kids to help with equipment or problem solving. From all the cool engineering toys for girls talk about girls being invested in the story which is why there are the Spy puffs. The kids follow the mission, take a picture, send it in and will get a spy reward and badge, as well as move up the spy rank ladder. Some of the rewards are a mission book, a mission file holder, spy IDs, decoder, and more. Every week a new mission will be posted (mission 1) and the results that are sent in will be posted on the missions complete page.  There are different requirements for older and younger spies and there are lots of resources on the sidebar about engineering and children. I’ve been thinking about this for so long, that I’m not completely sure it is all clearly laid out, so please email me with information about what you like and don’t like about the Engineering Spy Girls program. You can see all the pages on the top right side of the blog under Engineering Spy Girls.
