2018 Summer Workshops for Kids

All grade requirements are for the grades students will be entering in the Fall of 2018.
Before (8:30-9:00AM) and After (3:00-5:00PM) care is available for all sessions.


Co-Ed Robotics Session #1 ***FULL***

Grades: 3rd-8th

Dates: June 25-29th

Times: 9AM-3PM

Cost: $550

This session will help students design, build, and program LEGO Robots using the engineering design process. Throughout the week, students will be challenged with several open-ended design activities. The week will start with activities focusing on stability in design and move to other topics, such as gearing, weight distribution, and momentum, as the students incorporate programming and motors into their designs.

Girls Week

Grades: 2nd-5th

Dates: July 16-20th

Times: 9AM-3PM

Cost: $550

The week will consist of open-ended mini-challenges using different materials and new technologies culminating in a larger user-centered design project. Students will explore the topics of simple electronics, human factors, programming, robotics, and user-centered design. The focus will be engineering, but special attention will be paid to the client and understanding problems to better address problems in design solutions.

High School Engineering

Grades: 9-12th

Dates: July 23-27th

Times: 9AM-3PM

Cost: $600

This workshop will explore simple machines, aerodynamics, robotics and maker tools. Students will be challenged to build trebuchets that fire tennis balls, balsa/tissue paper planes that fly, bluetooth remote-controlled robots and a variety of microcontroller projects.

Survival Engineering

Grades: 3rd-5th

Dates: July 23-27th

Times: 9AM-3PM

Cost: $550

In this workshop, students will engineer practical and functional solutions that could help them survive in the wild. From shelter, to water filtration, to catching their own food, students will be challenged with design activities to test their survival skills. Activities will focus on the engineering design process as students plan, build, and test their solutions. Although some activities will be tested outside, most of this workshop will take place in the comfort of our air conditioned workshop space.
