2019 Apprentice/Master Level Engineering Summer Camp Descriptions (Ages: 3rd - 8th Grade)

June camps
Mornings (9am -12pm) Sailing the Sea:

Avast, me maties! Being a pirate involves more than just swabbing the deck and searching for buried treasure. Our Engineering for Kids pirates have to engineer ways to build their ship, load it up and sail around the world.

Sometimes, buried treasure isn’t found on an island but in a dark cavern far below the ocean’s surface. In this camp, students explore industrial and marine engineering as they design their own boat and sails and devise ways to dive deep into the ocean to retrieve buried treasure. During this week, students will explore the ideas of buoyancy and surface area as they design their pirate ships, the sails for their ships, and a system to retrieve sunken treasures! So what do you say; Are ye’ ready to sail the seas?

Mornings (9am -12pm): “Out of This World” Camp:

Is mankind ready to inhabit the moon? With a little help from Engineering for Kids® students, humans will be prepared to take up residence by the end of the week! Students will collaborate with their Space State teams to create the safest and most effective community on the moon. Which team will earn enough Astro-Points to be declared the winner? During Out of this World camp, students will explore three fields of engineering: aerospace, civil, and chemical. Collaborating with their Space State teams, they will design and construct a variety of projects that will enable mankind to safely inhabit the moon.

Afternoons (1pm - 4pm): Electronic Game Design Camp:

During this Electronic Game Design Camp “Platform Games” students will use Multimedia Fusion 2.5® to create their own video game. A platform game is a side-scrolling, Mario-type game where students program characters and a two-dimensional obstacle course. They attempt to avoid or overcome enemies and reach an end goal on multiple levels. At the end of the class, students take home a copy of the game they create.

Afternoons (1pm - 4pm): LEGO® Robotics “Mission to Mars” Camp:

During this LEGO® Robotics camp students design and program robots to explore an unknown planet, find safe shelter, and collect soil samples from the planet. Students use LEGO® Robotics and computers to learn principles of robotics, computer programming, and teamwork.

Mornings (9am- 12pm): Engineering Olympiad Camp:

Who has the strength to be a world-class athlete? In this five-day camp, students will separate into countries and will compete against opposing countries in various tests of mental and creative strength. The students will earn “medals” throughout the week and will endeavor to become the next great team of Olympians. During this Engineering Olympiad camp, students will explore the fields of mechanical engineering, marine engineering, electrical engineering, and civil engineering as they participate in various challenges to strengthen their minds.

Afternoons (1 pm- 4 pm): Electronic Game Design:

Video games are everywhere and in almost every form you can imagine. In the Electronic Game Design: Invader Defense camp, students will create our own version of an invader defense game where we will defend against an invasion. We will use the Engineering Design Process to create a storyboard to outline the rules of play and characters for our game. Then, we will use Clickteam Fusion 2.5® to bring our storyboard to life with programming. At the end of the class, everyone takes home a working Windows-compatible game (Clickteam Fusion 2.5® does not support Mac or Android operating systems).

Afternoons (1 pm- 4 pm): LEGO® Robotics Olympics Camp:

During this camp, students design and program robots to compete in simulated Olympic events such as throwing a basketball, shooting a puck into a hockey goal, and competing in a good old fashioned game of tug of war! Students use LEGO® Robotics and computers to learn principles of robotics, computer programming, and teamwork. Because the afternoon camp may have different students than the morning camp, students’ projects will not be factored into the overall Engineering Olympiad competition.
