WEEK 1  |  June 18 - 21

DIY LONGBOARD BUILD

Design, build, skate! Students will put their basic math, engineering, and artistic skills into action as we work from concept, to design, to gluing up the deck, to mounting the hardware. Students who complete the workshop will take home their own one-of-a-kind and ready-to-ride longboard! 

Dates: June 18-21, 9am - 3pm

Innovations in healthcare - It's going tibia a blast!

Design and construct original prosthetics (artificial limbs) and learn about how you can make a difference in health care. We’ll even look at how 3D printing technology helps with this process! Students will learn basic anatomy and body systems in an interactive and fun environment while solving some of the biggest problems for people in their homes and workplaces.

Dates: June 18-21, 9am - 3pm

Week of rockets - Blast off!

Join our flight crew as we blast off to space! This exciting camp is all about rockets and how they are fueling our knowledge of other worlds. Mission preparation includes building custom rockets with 3D printers and conducting experiments to explore the science behind space travel. From the basics of Newton’s Laws of physics to mass and gravity, you’ll learn what it takes to be a real rocket scientist. 

Dates: June 18-21, 9am - 3pm

NASA MISSION - Map your place in space

Join us for this NASA Educator designed camp - We'll be using GPS (Global Positioning Systems) mapping, geo-tracking, and GIS (Geographical Information Systems) technologies to explore the world we inhabit. In this hands-on camp, we’ll work together we’ll do everything from Geocaching to Geo-mapping! We’ll work directly with NASA experts and Google Earth to better understand our planet. Mission: Map Your Place in Space will take us on a journey where we’ll explore, discover, create, question, learn, and most importantly, have fun. 

Dates: June 18-21, 9am - 3pm


WEEK 2  |  July 9 - 12

DRONE MAPPING - Get Launched!

Students will learn the latest cutting edge technology for small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) and how to safely operate them, as a component of this science, technology and aviation-related camp! Our FAA certified instructor will walk you through the steps of navigation and the introduction of mapping using a DJI Phantom 3 Drone and cloud based computing software. Get ready to video, photograph and map out our town, producing high resolution imagery as it has never been seen before. Plus it is just a whole lot of fun to fly drones. 

Dates: July 9-12, 9am - 3pm
