Learn valuable skills in coding, problem-solving, and engineering while designing your robot to meet every challenge.

LEARN, PROGRAM and PLAY!


The Theme Park Mania: MinecraftEDU

MinecraftThis camp is designed to introduce students to the concepts of civil engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and the Engineering Design Process.

Students will design simulation roller coasters and other amusement park attractions in Minecraft making them run as autonomously as possible.

Our camps give students a meaningful, hands-on introduction to the fundamentals of technology and design-thinking methodology; challenging them to collaborate with their fellow campers to create solutions to real-world problems.


Agent of Travel

Engineering for Kids

Pack your bags and let's map out our trip around the world!

Over 100 years ago, airplanes had not even made their first flight, yet today we can fly to the other side of the world in 12 hours! Over the next five days, teams will work together to see who can travel the farthest around the world.

This trip around the world will require students to design their very own cars, planes, and even a ROCKET!

Our camps give students a meaningful, hands-on introduction to the fundamentals of engineering and design-thinking methodology; challenging them to collaborate with their fellow campers to create solutions to real-world problems.


Morning: 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Afternoon: 1:00 – 4:00 pm

Full Day: 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

(Lunch Supervision from 12:00 – 1:00 pm)

Apprentice Camps (Ages 7-15)

Mechatronics Master Minds: Young Inventors!

undefinedThis summer our campers will build, create, and invent as they explore the basics of mechatronics engineering, logic-based programming using littleBits and Arduino. They will work together to design gadgets, tools, and machines from self-driving vehicles and art machines to a Chain Reaction Contraption.

Our mission is to empower everyone to create and invent.

LEARN THROUGH INVENTION!


3D Modeling & Creations: Imagine. Design. Create.

undefined3D Printing has taken the world by storm!

This innovative new camp brings your ideas to life and allows everyday users to create nearly anything they can imagine. Have a cool idea for an invention? Why not print it! Design anything and together we make it a reality. This camp encourages an open-ended design concept.

Explore the concepts of 3D printing and computer-aided design to bring your own creations to life!

Design a model in preparation for real 3D printing! Take it home and show off your creations to all your friends! The fun doesn’t end when camp does; Continue to improve your skills at home using the same TinkerCAD modeling software you learned at camp with 24/7 access!!


Hackers Unite! “Code your own Video Game”

undefinedWhat’s more fun than playing video games? Designing them!

Discover how to create animations, stories, and games. Participants will be introduced to 2D animations using Scratch 3.0 programming.

Get a solid foundation in coding and programming, learning how to use conditional loops, variables live video and gestures to interact with virtual game elements. The FUN doesn’t stop here, keep your skills sharp with our take-home program. Play & build from home!


Juniors Camps (Ages 4-7)

Junior Inventors

undefinedA week of fun, creativity, and of course -- Engineering!

Over the course of a week, students will invent new machines and explore creative design solutions using the Engineering Design Process.

Design your own Drawing Robot, build a Hovering Vehicle, and use your Tinker Box to invent something new.

We encourage learning that fosters students’ creativity, courage, and curiosity through open-ended challenges in the fields of STEM, fine arts, and learning.


Junior Makers and Engineers!

Einstein QuoteThe young adventurers will discover the fascinating world of engineering as they are challenged to create various builds using the engineering design process.

Our young campers will design their own operation game, build cool toys, discover the wonders of chemical engineering and more. We finish the week with a blast as they design and launch their own Bottle Rockets!

Campers will explore, and experiment to further and deepen their own learning. Design thinking, problem-solving, and collaboration are emphasized.

The sky’s the limit when you bring your imagination to the table!


Coding, and Digital Storytelling Summer Camp

undefinedDo you love telling stories, sharing ideas, and creating games? This is YOUR camp!

If you can imagine it, you can build it! Kick off the camp by joining your new builder friends and create a whole new world with blocks using Toca Builders.

Campers then utilize Scratch Junior, a visual programming language, to build their own characters, scenes, and bring them to life through interactive stories and games.

Learn the basics of problem-solving and coding through visual programming blocks. Best of all, since Scratch Jr is a free app, you can create your own account and keep working on your project at home even after the camp is over!
