Summer camp descriptions

Electronic Game Design: Invader DefenseShark Attack!

Watch out! It’s a shark attack! In Invader Defense: Shark Attack, we will create our own version of an invader defense game that will allow us to protect a coral reef from hungry sharks. We will use the Engineering Design Process to create a storyboard and outline the rules of play 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 game.

Electronic Game Design: Platform Games

During our Electronic Game Design : Platform camp, students will use Multimedia Fusion 2® 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 program, everyone takes home a working game.

Mechanical and Electrical Engineering Exploration! using little bits;

Eureka! Kelvin has finally done it! He has created a perpetual motion machine. But what is this?! An evil genius has stolen Kelvin's masterpiece - oh no! Kelvin is now looking for a trustworthy team to develop and test new gadgets that will help him find and safeguard his perpetual motion machine. Explore the basics of mechanical, electrical engineering and logic based programming as students use littleBits® and work together to design gadgets, tools, and machines that will help Kelvin get out of any sticky situation he may encounter.

MinecraftEDU: Medieval Redstone

MinecraftEDU is an expansive game that lets players design and create unique worlds with amazing structures. One of the more complicated aspects of MinecraftEDU is Redstone, which is MinecraftEDU’s version of electrical circuitry. This class will introduce students to the many uses of Redstone through a Medieval themed adventure of creation, exploration, and castle besieging, with students making mine cart tracks to help them gather resources, working together to build their kingdom, and designing traps to defend their castle, all with the use of Redstone.

MinecraftEdu: Traveling into the Future

Join us in an apocalyptic future, one where the earth has been ravaged by a series of natural disasters. Each day, students rely on the engineering design process to solve a series of challenges such as building a city on a series of islands, escaping from a bunker on Mt. Everest, and even building a rocket to land on the moon! Through application of engineering principles, students solve numerous challenges as they make their virtual world of Minecraft a safe place for humanity once again.

Robotics 101

The Robotics 101 camp, students will learn the basics of designing, programming, and controlling a fully functional robot. Using LEGO® EV3®, mathematical concepts, and engineering principles students will brainstorm, plan, test, and modify sequences of instructions to accomplish a given task. Students will also learn the sequence of communication between the robot, and the programmer by collecting and analyzing data using the robot's sensors.

Robotics: Rescue Robots

The LEGO® Robotics: Rescue Robots curriculum is designed to introduce students to the world of not only building, but also programming basic robots. Throughout this course the students will explore different ways in which a robot could be utilized to respond in disaster situations. Through discussion and hands-on activities, students will learn to differentiate technology from natural (not man-made) objects and discuss why these objects are considered to be technology. Also students will Explore areas that humans cannot travel, such as the ocean floor and deep space, assist in the safe disposal of explosives and analyze data provided by sensors and react to it appropriately.


Design The Future

What does the future look like? Join us as we embark on an odyssey to explore the future of transportation, manufacturing and structural. Let’s take a look at the innovations of today and apply them to create the designs of tomorrow as we explore ways to harness clean energy and house a growing human population. Become an engineer and help Design the Future in a fun and hands on activities environment.


Engineering Investigators

Become a forensics engineer and help Kelvin find out who stole the blueprints for his secret, new design. Using principles of investigative science and forensic engineering, students will analyze evidence in the simulated crime scene using math, science, and technology. Embark on a new journey each day to decipher cryptic clues and biological codes, and help us identify the thief through chemical and mechanical analysis. Time is running out, and Kelvin needs your help!


Robotics: Mission to Mars


During the LEGO® Robotics Mission to Mars classes, 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.


Jr. Engineering Of Travel

Guten Tag! Travel the world with Kelvin and our core of engineers as we explore the continents in just five days. Everyone has to travel, and engineers are involved in all the steps of designing different modes of transportation as well as inventing and designing tools that aid in travel. During this camp, students will get their passports and travel to a new country every day by a different means! They will engineer their mode of transportation or tool to aid in transportation daily to get to their destination country. Students will explore areas of engineering such as Mechanical, Civil, Marine, and Aerospace engineering. Join us on an amazing adventure using the engineering design process as we engineer planes, cars boats and rockets to travel the globe and beyond.

 

Jr. Robotics Lab

The goal of this class is to introduce the students to the concept of what robotics is as well as give the students a chance to build and program their own robots. This class is a perfect mixture of fun and learning, using LEGO® WeDo™ education set. Students will build a variety of robots like an airplane rescue, a giant escape, and a sailboat storm. Students will also learn how to program and operate their creations using a laptop computer.
