Session: Embrace STEM
Summer is a great time to daydream about all the possible contraptions you can make. Whether you design fun gadgets for your friends, or you simply like to spend an afternoon building the next BIG idea. This thematic unit guides students as they explore the role of the 3-dimensional prototype, Art in design, and the engineering cycle embedded in all problem-solving. Join us as we think like engineers and act like artists to design and test flying machines, Rube Goldberg contraptions, design futuristic lunch boxes, and build amazing structures.
Session: Entrepreneurs Garage
Through a blend of critical thinking, collaborative planning, and creative problem solving, campers will practice thinking like an entrepreneur by assuming the roles of product developers, marketing specialists, and business analysts to solve authentic industry problems.
