Spring Break Camp 2019
Join us this Spring Break for a week of full-day or half-day fun with the folks from Engineering for Kids!
EV3 Robotics: Color Sensing (morning) & Mechatronic Masterminds (afternoon)
April 22nd - 26th, 2019
Half Day Camp - 9am - 12pm / 1pm - 4pm ; $275
Full Day Camp - 9am - 4pm; $550 (*Students are to bring lunch)
[$10 discount for registrations by March 30th, 2019. PROMO CODE: EFKSPRING]
For Ages 9+
Robotics: Color Sensing
Controlling robots from afar allows engineers and scientists to place robots in situations that are unsafe for humans. During this program, students will explore what a combination of color sensors and motors can accomplish. Students will program their robots to respond to simulated catastrophic events, play tug of war, and so much more.
Eureka! Kelvin has finally done it! He has created a perpetual motion machine. But what is this?! An evil genius has stolen Kelvin's masterpiece - oh no! Kelvin is now looking for a trustworthy team to develop and test new gadgets that will help him find and safeguard his perpetual motion machine. Explore the basics of mechatronics engineering and logic-based programming as students use littleBits® and work together to design gadgets, tools, and machines that will help Kelvin get out of any sticky situation he may encounter.

To the Moon and Beyond!
Campers will be tasked as NASA’s newest crew-members! To prepare for take-off, campers will learn what it takes to be an astronaut by taking part in their own missions like: construct a satellite, learn about telescopes and how they work, uncover the mysteries of our planet neighbors, make lunar craters and more!
Design, create, engineer, and let your imagination take flight! Investigate the invention of the airplane, learn about super-hero science, experiment with household items to make reactions happen, and even build your own rocket!
What is STEM?
STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.
