July 17th - 21st and July 24th - 28th
DOUBLE THE FUN BY SIGNING UP FOR TWO WEEKS!
Experience the world of Minecraft with LEGO® bricks. Campers will face new crafting challenges each day, building models and key elements from the popular Minecraft game! Then, they will use our very own Minecraft server where the kids can recreate their lego designs in the virtual world! More advanced projects and challenges will involve the use of K'Nex as they build their own robots and machines!
Students learn about animals and will go on exciting field trips and behind the scenes tours of what it takes to care for animals. They will also visit local farms and learn about domesticated farm animals and how this important industry creates food for our families. Possible trips may include, but are not limited to, Turtle Back Zoo and/or Lakota Wolf Preserve.
Children will learn art and science are in everything. They will create beautiful art work using plants from nature, learn about the colors of the rainbow and even how to do amazing chemistry experiments that result in art pieces that they can take home and share with their families.
Students will learn about one type of animal group per day (birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, insects). They will learn about what traits or characteristics they have that help us to determine what group they belong to. Students will have the opportunity have a visit from an animal expert or a trip to the zoo!
Whether it as a future engineer or designer, students engage in projects that foster imagination, problem solving, teamwork, as well as strengthen their skills and talents. Students will engage in designing as they prototype, test and redesign their projects in our state of the art Maker Space.
Students will learn how magic can be used to "defy" gravity and perception.
Campers learn how science is used to create amazing art forms in nature.
You don't have to wait until you're in high school to learn about Newton's Laws! Students will learn about Newton's laws through an array of activities, such as, making rockets, egg drops and designing catapults—to name a few.
Who would not enjoy a day in the woods or at a lake? Students will learn all about the animals that live in nature around our schools and the amazing ways we coincide with nature. NOTE: Nature camp will be an all day activity to allow students to get the most out of trips and activities requiring full day experiences. Since this is an all day activity, your child will be unable to participate in another grades 3-5 activity unless he/she is registered for another week of STEAM Camp.
This exciting activity allows students to use special VR goggles while racing their drones in "first person view". They will learn how to control and fly them up to 35mph! This is sure to be an amazing experience that prepares them for a very real future of increased drone use!
Get ready for hands-on and minds-on! What a great way to expose students to STEAM education! Simple snap-together pieces allow students to collaborate and problem-solve as they build, test and tweak their robots. Students will then use their robots to compete with their peer's robots. From motors to the programming, the campers are in control. This course creates a fun, teamwork-driven environment as students learn how science, technology, engineering, art, and math are all interwoven with each other in the building of their VEX robots.
Students will learn and make a variety of wood pieces using a variety of tools. From creating candy jars to more complex pieces, students will not only build objects, they will also have their confidence built! They will learn about safety, paying attention to detail, and how to follow plans. As in Maker 101 and Science of Art, students can walk away feeling proud of their creations and perseverance.
Zip lines, belaying off walls, and more! Learn the physics of the high ropes course and the importance of teamwork! In this course, students are challenged to trust themselves and their peers, problem solve collaboratively, build their creative drive, and encourage each other to take risks by climbing walls, jumping into space and flying across a zip line that is nearly 30 feet high! Experienced instructors guide students through every challenge that is guaranteed to give them a great time, as well as develop their leadership and communication skills.
MORT is a year-round extracurricular program that not only competes in First Robotics Club, it also reaches out to prospective students, as well as the community to promote STEAM education. In this week-long "crash course", your child will learn about the different facets of FRC design and fabrication: introduction to design, mechanical fabrication, electrical components, and programming.
From beginners to advanced, campers learn how to play instruments in a band, run the sound and lighting for a major show and much more. The week ends with these students giving a live concert!
This year, we are opening this activity to students in grades 6-8! NOTE: Since this is an all day activity, your child will be unable to participate in another grades 6-8 activity unless he/she is registered for another week of STEAM Camp.
