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.
Join us at the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City for a full week of fun and exciting STEM excursion!
Location: Cradle Of Aviation Museum, Charles Lindbergh Blvd, Garden City, NY 11530
Dates: February 20th - 24th; 9am - 4pm
Fee: $550 (5% sibling discount)
Ages 8 - 14
AM Sessions: Game Design Lab: Pong Games
They say that in space no one can hear you scream... with joy while playing your very own version of the classic video game, Pong. Pong In Space! We will use the Engineering Design Process to create a storyboard to identify and capture 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 program, everyone takes home a working Windows compatible game (Clickteam Fusion 2.5® does not support Mac or Android operating systems).
PM Sessions: LEGO Robotics Lab
This program is designed to introduce students to the world of not only building, but also programming basic robots using LEGO® 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.
*** Please bring a bag lunch. Supervised lunch hour, 12pm-1pm at the museum cafeteria. Students are also encouraged to bring a book to enjoy during that time!***
