Camp Season Program Description

Whether you are a new programmer or a practiced builder, Robotic Engineers camp offers you a chance to dig into the world of robotics in a fun and challenging way.  This camp consists of design, building, and programming challenges in a way that will get you thinking creatively and keep you having a good time.  Campers will use the EV3 and it’s accompanying Mindstorms programming to solve challenges and play games.  Games might include but are not limited to battle bots, steal the bacon, soccer games, and more.  We will also use LEGO Technic pieces and some traditional and non-traditional building materials to combine with motors and sensors to design and test ideas in engineering challenges.  Campers signing up for more than one session have the option to tackle challenges in new ways, with additional layers of complication and learning, or can help create a customized challenge to continue to develop their skills.  With an emphasis on problem solving and creativity, Robotics Engineers offers campers a chance to explore technology in an enthusiastic and in-depth way no matter what level of experience and skill they are coming with.

Portfolio Development is offered 2nd Session to students aged 10-13.

Portfolio Development

This course will give young artists a jump start on developing a personalized portfolio of art works. Artists will explore techniques that are age appropriate in various drawing, painting and sculptural materials all the while building confidence and unlocking their own artistic voice. Young artists can expect to create up to 5 finished artworks to add to their portfolio. Using art historical references, campers will brainstorm and create projects that are personal to them and receive the support necessary in realizing their completion. Along with creating strong, personalized, portfolio-worthy pieces, campers can be expected to participate in the critique process and familiarize themselves with appropriate vocabulary that will help them better articulate their vision.
