Our Planes and Helicopters Robotics Camp for kids 5 – 8 years is packed full of learning, experimentation, creativity, problem solving, and of course….FUN.

A high-level overview of the weekly activity schedule is as follows:

  • Monday – Lego Robotics:  Build the Apache Helicopter robot and prepare for take-off from our play mats.
  • Tuesday – 3D Design/3D Printing:  kids 3D design and 3D print Whirligigs (which they keep)
  • Wednesday – Lego Robotics:  Travel back in time and build the Mustang Plane, a fighter celebrated for its maneuverability.
  • Thursday – T-shirts & Gliders:  Students will select and create their foam core glider from different designs.  They will use a digital cutter to cut decorations.  Students keep their gliders.  Students will also create an aviation themed logo using a graphic design program, use the digital cutters to cut it out, and personalize a t-shirt, which they keep.
  • Friday – Lego Robotics:  On the final day, students will build the Sikorsky, a heavy transport helicopter.

This camp features technologies including:  robotics, graphic design, 3D design/3D printing, digital cutters, and foam core crafts. 

 

We have two options for our 9+ campers.  Each option is limited to 7 campers.  Our camps for 9+ campers are project based and help foster problem solving, critical thinking, collaboration, and creativity.

Students enrolled in our Elastic Powered Car (Option 1) camp will learn about potential and elastic energy as they 3D design and 3D print a an elastic powered car. This is an excellent camp for students that want to learn detailed 3D design and 3D printing.  Students will also engage in some competitive fun testing out and racing their elastic powered cars on our speed mats. Students keep their projects.

A high-level overview of the weekly activity schedule is as follows:

  • Monday:  Planning and pencil/paper design of cars, 3D design of chassis.
  • Tuesday:  3D printing of chassis and 3D design of wheels and axles
  • Wednesday:  3D printing of wheels, axles, and pin mechanisms
  • Thursday: Assembly and testing of cars, modifications as needed
  • Friday: final assembly and fun competition to assess speed and distance

This camp features technologies including:  planning and measurement, 3D design/3D printing

Students enrolled in our Soap Making (Option 2) camp will learn the art of soap making, create a soap mold using 3D design/3D printing and silicone, as well as create several bars of soap, which they keep.

A high-level overview of the weekly activity schedule is as follows:

  • Monday:  Learn about soap making techniques, 3D design and begin 3D printing soap mold
  • Tuesday:  Make first soap bar and complete 3D printing of soap molds
  • Wednesday:  Make latex soap molds
  • Thursday: Make second soap using their own soap molds
  • Friday: Make third soap using mini-molds

This camp features technologies including:  3D design/3D printing, mold making, silicone, scents and colorants, and soap making.

Space is limited for each camp are segment so book early.  Camps run from 9 am – 4 pm.  Optional Before and After-Care is available.   An optional pizza lunch will be available on Friday with details provided to to registered campers.  T-shirts are provided for kids 5-8 yrs.  All materials and technologies are provided for both camps.  Students will spend time outside during lunch hour at a nearby park.
