Engineering Workshop (June 15-19)

Focus: Engineering, Creativity, Problem solving, Collaboration

Students become Engineers for a week. Each day will introduce them to a different theme - Aerospace Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Structural design, Programming and Robotics. Create rockets and rovers, build bridges, learn how cars work and develop programs. Hands on activities and projects that develop problem solving skills are the flavor of this week, and most importantly, all while having fun.

GRADES: 1-8

AGES: 6-13

Fun Robotics (June 22-26)

Focus: Technology, Creativity, Collaboration, Problem Solving, Innovation

This program will cover everything robotics - starting from "what is a robot" to programming a robot, to creating your own. Learn robotic concepts, operating principles and algorithms. Students will learn machine and electronic foundation as they build multiple robots including Mindstorm EV3, Wonder league robots, Line Tracer, Battle Robot, and more. This will also build skills for kids interested in Robotics competitions.

Returning campers will work on new projects per their skill level.

LEGO® Engineering (June 29 - July 3)

Focus: Design, Creativity, Engineering concepts, Team work

Machines and mechanisms come to life with LEGO bricks and help you discover how the real world works. Students will come across engineering principles such as gear trains, worm drives, and loading constraints. Mechanical and structural build-ups of the mechanisms that we see around us,will help students develop analytical skills that are necessary while designing and testing their creations.
