Oct 21 and Oct 28, 2017
Grades 1-2, Young Makers' Camp
In this maker-centered camp, children will explore highly engaging technology and engineering programs through playfulness and exploration. Put your questioning and tinkering skills to work as we move through engineering and design challenges that push us to collaborate and problem solve with materials ranging from toothpicks to circuits. We will also explore how nature can inspire human-made designs. Join us for a morning of innovative fun! This camp will be using the Lego Wedo 2.0 Robotics Kit and the LittleBits Inventors Kit.
Grades 3-4, Makers' Camp
In this maker-centered camp, children will build and program a LEGO Mindstorms EV3 robot to complete design challenges. They will also learn about how the natural world can inspire our own human engineered creations. Join us for a morning of fun and innovation! This camp will be using the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 and the LittleBits Inventors Kit.
Grades 3-4, Science Discovery Camp
This highly engaging science camp will have your children working as real scientists to observe, investigate, and discover! We will explore topics such as geology, astronomy, engineering, architecture, biology, and physical science through hands-on experiments and problem solving. This fast-paced experiential camp is sure to get your child excited about the science all around us!
Grades 5-6, Advanced Science Discovery Camp
In this advanced science camp, your son or daughter will be working as real scientists to experiment, collect data, and discover new material in the World of Biology! We will explore cells, genetics, and the causes of diseases in this hands-on, problem-solving course. This fast-paced experiential camp is sure to get your child excited about how biology is all around us.
Grades 4-6, Mindstorms EV3 Robotics
In this challenge driven camp students learn programming and mechanical design strategies using the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 robotics set including the use of sensors (e.g. touch, ultrasonic, color, gyro). Core concepts for building strong models will be explored (i.e. load bearing structures, the right way to reinforce structures).
Grades 5-6, Inventions Inspired by Nature
Nature is full of amazing engineering that can inspire our own designs. In this fun and engaging camp. students learn about some of the innovative materials, structural designs, and chemistry found in nature. As students engage in biomimicry they will be draw from nature's inspiring design to enhance their own inventions.
