Two Tech Camp Options:
STEM Camp (for students entering Grades 6-8)
Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math all wrapped into a dynamic full day of hands-on design thinking activities. Students will use technology, math skills, and creativity to solve science and engineering design process challenges. Class topics vary by week and may include options such as designing renewable energy wind turbines, solar cars, boat/plane designs, and structures/bridge-building to name a few. Our full day programs include plenty of time mid-day for fresh-air physical activities outside such as swimming and ball games. Students return to their afternoon session energized and ready for more STEM fun!

Digital Innovators: Coding and 3D Printing
(for students entering Grades 3-5; 6-8)

Spend a fun-filled week (or more!) learning coding basics and 3D design! Scratch from MIT Media Labs makes coding fun and accessible. Students will spend part of each day learning different drag-and-drop coding block commands to create their own animated stories, sprites, and video games. Our full day programs include plenty of time mid-day for fresh-air physical activities outside such as swimming and ball games. After lunch, students will learn to design in 3D with Tinkercad software and print their 3D creations to take home later in the week. Design thinking comes to life with 3D printing!
