Spring 2018  STEM/STEAM & Maker Camps:

Our S.T.E.A.M springbreak camps unless otherwise noted are geared to children ages 6-14. On rare occasions, we accept younger children into the program but you must check with us first before signing them up.

  • Our 4-6 year old programs hours are from 9:00am-12:00pm with the option of an early drop-off and a 1:00pm pickup
  • S.T.E.A.M & Maker camps hours are from 9:00am-3:30pm unless otherwise noted
  • We offer extended care (early drop-off 8:00am/late pickup 5:30pm) for an additional fee
  • Our full-day programs are not available as a half day option.
  • Email us with any additional questions or concerns.

Hands-on S.T.E.A.M Explorations (Ages 6-14)

Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math….S.T.E.A.M education combines all of these major themes to get kids thinking and learning on all levels! Join us for a week of STEAM explorations! Learn about different scientific disciplines as you learn to think like an engineer, investigate like a scientist, and try your hand at some cool technology (3D printing, laser cutting, electronics). Figure out fun math tricks that will amaze your friends, discover the amazing world of robotics and programming and of course use your own creative and artistic touch to personalize your projects. Add it all up and a fun week of hands-on science awaits.   

 

  • Camp is full week.  Projects will determined by the age of the participants.
  • Email us if you are interested in registering for one or more days only. Priority is given to full week registrations.

Registration: Open

Price: $405.00

Game Design across the Board (Ages 7-9)

Join us for a week of hands-on engineering fun as we discover the magic of game design. From physical games (board games, memory games) to video games we will explore various game genres and let you try your hand at creating your own games. You'll discover the engineering process and how it is applied to all those games you use. Experiment with new technologies such as laser cutters, 3D printing to design and develop your game pieces/boards.

For programming novices we will experiment with Scratch as you develop basic computer programming skills.   Be ready to learn new tools and tips and share ideas. Learn to break down something complex into simpler tasks and parts. Students will move at their own pace as they work through as series of challenges and programming. Scratch provides us a bright visual drag-drop interface to  learning basic computer programming constructs

Software challenges and programming languages will be determined by the age and skills of the participants.

Please note: This camp involves long periods of concentrated work seated by a computer. Participating must be able to process verbal and written instructions and work independently. Challenges and projects will be tailored to your child's level of experience and knowledge but all participants must be able to read.

Game Design across the Board (Ages 10-14)

Join us for a week of hands-on engineering fun as we discover the magic of game design. From physical games (board games, memory games) to video games we will explore various game genres and let you try your hand at creating your own games. You'll discover the engineering process and how it is applied to all those games you use. Experiment with new technologies such as laser cutters, 3D printing to design and develop your game pieces/boards.

You will discover the magic of programming languages and game design when you build your unique game with GameMaker, an industry-standard tool used by developers and universities around the world. Beginners as well as more advanced programmers can drag-and-drop their way to game creation with the creative power of the GameMaker platform.  Be ready to learn new tools and tips and share ideas. Take your projects to a new level and expand your programming skills.

Learn to break down something complex into simpler tasks and parts. Students will move at their own pace as they work through as series of challenges and programming.

MAKER: Move It! (Ages 6-14)

From cars to boats, rockets to planes, motors and circuits, earthquakes and tornadoes this camp is all about movement! Campers will explore some of the key physics principles that allow vehicles to move, such as Newton’s laws, gravity, force, and more. You'll learn about earthquakes, discover simple facts about electricity, program small robots and much more Compare and contrast the many forms of movement, explore how a car could fly and how boats drive, and design your own moving vehicles to perform in various challenges. Of course, take all your new creations home to keep your curiosity in motion!
