About Our Summer Camps


Engineering for Kids® camps inspire children to build on their natural curiosity through fun and challenging, hands-on activities. Our programs encourage imagination, innovation and collaboration as well as the promotion of individual problem solving skills. Campers are introduced to the concepts of Engineering and the Engineering Design Process, applying these concepts in a real world setting as they ask, brainstorm, design, build, test and improve their creations multiple times.  

We offer weekly two-theme half-day camps to combine or attend standalone - Engineering and Technology. Thus, the full-day camps will combine our core ENGINEERING programs with the latest EV3 Robotics, MinecraftEDU, Electronic Game Design and 3D Printing curriculum to create an unforgettable engineering experience.

Language: GERMAN / ENGLISH.

Age Groups: 

Many of the activities will take place outdoors.

We believe summer camps are about having fun, making new friends and learning something new and exciting - every day!

Weekly Camp Descriptions


APPRENTICE & MASTER ENGINEERS (Ages 7-14):


Week 1 (July 3 to 7) / Ages 7-12 / Register Here!


Engineer Investigators (Morning Session):

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 EV3: Da Vinci's Design (Afternoon Session):

During the Da Vinci’s Designs robotics camp, students will use LEGO® MINDSTORMS® to find viable solutions to some of the same challenges that Leonardo Da’Vinci was once faced with. These “ancient” real-word problems include making a mobile bridge, the perfect siege machine, and yes, even creating a masterpiece of art like the Mona Lisa.

Week 2 (July 10 to 14) / Ages 7-12 / Register Here!


Amazing Race: The Engineering of Travel (Morning Session):

Just about 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! It is thanks to advances in technology that we are able to explore so much of the world. Over the five days of this camp teams will have to work together to see who is able to travel the farthest around the world. Join us on an amazing adventure as we engineer planes, cars, boats and rockets to travel the globe, and beyond.

3D Printing & Design: Superheroes To The Rescue (Afternoon Session): 

3D printers are one of the most widely applicable and fun inventions on the tech scene today and present boundless opportunity for creating even our wildest of ideas! In our 3D Printing program, students will explore the basic concepts of 3D printing and computer-aided design, or CAD, to bring their most awesome Minecraft or Superhero creation to life! Students will take their Minecraft design out of the world of Minecraft or take their hand drawn design of their favorite Superhero and learn how to extrude it into a 3D model that can then be modified to be printed in 3D.

Robotics EV3: Ocean Missions (Afternoon Session): 

This program is designed to introduce students to the world of not only building, but also programming basic robots using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 sets. Throughout this camp, students will use mathematical concepts, engineering principles to brainstorm, plan, test, and modify sequences of instructions to accomplish a specific 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. Join us for this LEGO® Robotics Ocean Missions camp, to design and program robots to protect the ocean and ocean life by releasing a dolphin into the ocean, fixing a broken pipeline, maintaining an oil platform and more!

MinecraftEDU: Travelling into the Future (Afternoon Session): 

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.

Electronic Game Design: Temple Escape (Afternoon Session):

Software engineers apply the Engineering Design Process to design and create software, and they have few limitations to what they can create within the virtual world of computers. One of their many job opportunities includes video game programming. A video game programmer uses their knowledge as a software engineer to manipulate a program and create a game. The software they use can vary widely, but the logic and foundation behind their creations are related. In our programs, we will be exploring a few of the key concepts that software engineers use to create the awesome games that many enjoy playing at home. During the "Electronic Game Design: Temple Escape" camp, students will use Multimedia Fusion 2® to create their own video game. A platform game is a side-scrolling, where students program characters and a two-dimensional obstacle course. They will attempt to avoid or overcome enemies and reach an end goal on multiple levels. At the end of the class, students will take home a copy of a working Windows-compatible game they create.
