Co-Ed Robotics #1
Grades: 3rd-8th
Dates: June 24-28
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 22-26

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 digital fabrication and makerspaces, LEGO robotics, space travel, 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 29 - August 2

Times: 9AM-3PM

Cost: $600

Join us as we explore  engineering through problem solving, original design creation, and hands-on building projects. Students will be challenged to develop an "engineering mindset" featuring critical thinking, teamwork, persistence, and the ability to create innovative solutions to complex challenges. Students have the opportunity to develop practical skills in a variety of topics including: electronics, programming and app development with MicroBits and Thunkable; creative problem solving and design with Rube Goldberg machines built from scratch; and a fusion of art and function with personalized wearable technology.

Spy Workshop: Engineering a Secret Mission

Grades: 3-5th

Dates: August 5-9

Times: 9AM-3PM

Cost: $550

This secret mission workshop will train your students to be both spies and engineers. We’ll design gadgets like flashlights, periscopes, and centrifuges; learn about the science behind genetics to narrow down suspects; and explore robotics, circuits, engineering design, and forensics as we build up our spy tool belts, and begin a mission!

Pirate Engineering

Grades: 1st-3rd

Dates: August 12-16

Times: 9AM-3PM

Cost: $550

This session will explore engineering design with a side of sea shanties, as we embark on our own pirate adventure. We’ll begin the week by designing boats to help us traverse the seas. We'll make prosthetics (peglegs, hook hands, and eye patches, anyone?) to help pirates complete everyday tasks. We'll also create life vests and other tools to help us on a treasure hunt!
