Learn Project Management

at club KE101 Summer Camp

Project Management

Project Management is the process and activity of planning and organizing resources to achieve specific goals. Construction project resources include time, money, equipment, technology, people and materials. The project management triangle is Scope, Schedule, and Cost. These are parts and pieces of the big picture that Project Managers own and breath through the life cycle of the project. 

What Your Child Will Learn at Summer Camp

While KE101 lessons on Design and Planning start at 1st Grade Level, our Project Management curriculum for older kids includes understanding the Project Management Triangle: scope, schedule, and cost as well. As builders, they are taught to understand the contract before execution and check it again at completion. 

To kids, these translate to what you need to do, when and how long it will take to do, and the cost and impact of doing so. This skill is directly transferable to their daily lives as kids, even to as simple as doing homework, chores or preparing for a trip. Administering contracts help kids learn a more sophisticated way of "keeping promises". We teach children how to manage their own lives while having fun with KidZ Engineering 101, Inc., a nonprofit corporation.

NOTE:  Every year, each class has a specific lesson plan depending on the schedule, age group, availability of Guest Speakers, and material available.  Also, the presence of repeat students and their level of experience differ.  The basic lesson plan is as described on the schedule.  However, the lesson plan may be tweaked to suit the needs and ability of the group.

Irene provided an engaging, hands on activity for my students, complete with essential background information and real world connections. My students really enjoyed planning a model city built to withstand natural disasters, and Irene helped them test their plan in creative and innovative ways.
