Camps

About Us

Engineering for Kids Camps inspire children to build on their natural curiosity through fun and challenging, hands-on activities. Our program encourages 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.

Apprentice/Master Engineer Camps (Ages 9-14)

Aug 7th – Aug 11th

3D Printing: Minecraft Creations (Morning Session)

3D printing and Minecraft both represent boundless opportunity for creating even our wildest of ideas! In 3D Printing: Minecraft, students will explore the basic concepts of 3D printing and computer-aided design, or CAD, to bring their most awesome Minecraft creation to life! Students will take their Minecraft design out of the world of Minecraft and learn how to extrude it into a 3D model that can then be modified to be printed in 3D.

 

MinecraftEDU: Medieval Redstone (Afternoon Session)

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 camp 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.

Aug 14th – Aug 18th

Hardware Engineering - Get Wired with Makey Makey (Morning Session)

Imagine designing a piano using celery or a creating a custom digital training program. Now, envision playing video games using just your body, a bit of wire and your own imagination. In our hardware engineering program, students engineer their own customized video game controllers using a Makey Makey device and materials that can be found in just about any kitchen. Through application of circuitry, acoustical engineering and video game design, students discover new ways to interact with technology, all while creating unique designs in a fun collaborative environment.

 

Game Design Lab: Platform Games with Clickteam Fusion 2.5 (Afternoon Session)

During our Game Design camp, students will use Clickteam Fusion 2.5® to create their very own side-scrolling, Mario-type video game. Students will create their own characters and a two-dimensional obstacle course as 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 Windows-compatible game (Clickteam Fusion 2.5® does not support Mac or Android operating systems).

Aug 21st – Aug 25th

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 Lab (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. During the camp, students will discover the Engineering Design Process in a real world setting as they test their robots multiple times. Students do not get to take home the LEGO® projects.

Aug 28th – Sept 1st

Design the Future (Morning Session)
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.

 

 

Minecraft: Traveling 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.

Fees: $550/Week
