It’s time to register for camp! Don’t let summer fly by without investing in your child’s future in one or more of our popular summer STEM camps.
ROBOTICS CAMP I (4th-6th grade) June 6-10, 7-8:30pm
This STEM focused camp uses LEGO bricks, gears, axels, motors and sensors to teach our students concepts in science, technology, mechanics, engineering and computer programing. Campers will program their robots with motorized attachments that complete programmed tasks. This camp is almost full.
ROBOTICS CAMP II (6th-9th grade) June 13-17, 7-8:30pm
Our advanced instructors make this a great camp for older campers to develop additional programming skills and use of sensors.
AVIATION SUMMER ACADEMY (5th-8th grade) June 20-24, 9:00am-2pm.
This 5-day course will enrich our students’ science and technology base by exposing them to all things aviation. Through hands on learning and fun we will walk them through the history, theory and science of aviation. Ground school instruction and simulators prepare them for the culmination of camp--an introductory flight in a real airplane! Whether this sparks their interest in a future career in aviation or just deepens their knowledge and love of flight, our Aviation Summer Academy is an invaluable experience!
DRONE CAMP I (4th-6th) August 2-4, 9am-noon
DRONE CAMP II (7th-9th) August 2-4, 1pm-4pm
Campers will learn of the exciting technologies and uses of drones. They will fly simulators and real aircrafts, program flights, conduct missions and analyze airborne collected data. Aerial obstacle courses and scavenger hunts will add fun elements to their learning experience.
FUN WITH FLIGHT (1st-3rd) June 13-17, 9am-11am
With young aviators in mind, this camp uses a collection of STEM learning activities based on aviation themed children’s books. Hands-on activities will engage your child as they make discoveries from a glider’s form and function to an airplane's force and thrust. Our little campers have so much fun they don’t even realize how much they are learning!
