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.

Spring Break Camp - April 10th - 14th, 2017
AM Sessions: 3-D Printing: Minecraft Creations
3-D printing and Minecraft both represent boundless opportunity for creating even our wildest of ideas! In 3-D Printing: Minecraft, students will explore the basic concepts of 3-D 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 3-D model that can then be modified to be printed in 3-D.
PM Sessions: 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 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.
