Camps

Our Core Camps

Engineering Explorers: Discover, Create, Innovate!

Ready... Set... Build! Students will take on an array of engineering based activities from building working circuits out of copper tape to shooting paper rockets 100 feet into the air. Students will learn how to apply their creativity to solve challenges and think like mechanical, electrical, and aeronautical engineers!

Scratch Superstars: Adventures in Creative Coding

Dive into a world of vibrant code blocks and endless imagination! Young learners are introduced to the joys of coding through Scratch, a visual programming platform perfect for crafting interactive stories, games, and animations. Our engaging, project-based approach grounds learners in fundamental computer science concepts while sparking creativity and fun.

Python Pioneers: Crafting Code, Unleashing Creativity

From a drawing robot to Space Invaders, students code a variety of projects with an emphasis on creative expression! Our project-based curriculum empowers learners to craft their unique projects while collaborating with peers and exploring the endless possibilities of computer science. Students learn to code in Python, a programming language applicable to cutting-edge fields like artificial intelligence and data science.

Circuit Craze: Arduinos & Electronics

Using Arduino microcontrollers, campers learn the fundamentals of electrical circuits. Campers will also use the real-world C++ text-based programming language to code their way through a series of challenges like an LED disco party. To conclude an electrifying week, campers work in teams to design, build, wire, and program a mini autonomous vehicle that can use sensor data to successfully navigate through an obstacle course.
