June S.T.E.A.M. Summer Camps

Online Registration Begins: Wednesday, March 8, 2017

Walk-In Registration Begins: Thursday, March 9, 2017

Enchanted Engineer (June 12-16)

Come explore the world of fairy tales and adventure while solving real world problems...we will use science, technology, engineering, art, and math to solve a problem for our hero in the story! Our engineers participate in experiments and record observations in their very own engineering journal. This camp focuses on the engineering design process, the scientific method, and solve engineering challenges!

Outdoor Adventure – Environmental Engineering (June 19-23)

Explore science and engineering to help save our planet! Environmental engineers use the principles of engineering, soil science, biology, and chemistry to develop solutions to environmental problems. They are involved in efforts to improve recycling, waste disposal, public health, and water/air pollution control. Document experiments in your own journal.

Under the Sea – Marine Engineering (June 26-30)

Wet fun for all as we explore the great mysteries of the ocean! We will enjoy ocean treats, ocean themed games, treasure hunts, sand art, and water gun wars. Campers must bring their own water guns. Our engineers participate in ocean experiments and record observations in their own engineering journal.

The Engineer’s Kitchen—Molecular Gastronomy (July 3-7; no class July 4)

In this class...we play with our food! Molecular gastronomy, or the science behind the cooking, is understanding the chemistry and physics of how food is cooked and using that knowledge to manipulate food preparation to create new tastes and textures. Join us as we experiment with food and create amazing treats!

Crazy Concoctions—Chemical Engineering (July 10-14)

Making a mess is generally frowned upon, but if you are learning important scientific principles and creating cool science experiments, then the mess will have to be excused. Join us on a wacky adventure through all kinds of cool and crazy chemical reactions. Use chemicals to make slippery slime and watch colors separate before your eyes! Find out how to make volcanoes erupt, what ooblek is, how to make gak and more. Add messy games and activities and you've got a slimy, grimy, goopy, and magical experience!

Art by Modern Masters (July 17-21)

Let’s create modern art in the style of Andy Warhol, Jackson Polock, Robert Rauscenberg, and more. We will use various art mediums such as acrylics, tempera, and watercolors. Some of the art techniques we will learn are printmaking, action painting, and collage. Please wear old clothes or bring an apron.

Inventor’s Workshop—Design Engineering (July 24-28)

Explore science and engineering in the world around us! Our engineers participate in experiments and record observations in their very own engineering journal. This camp focuses on the engineering design process through inventing fun games and toys. We will explore forces and motion, the scientific method, and solve engineering challenges!

Space is the Place! - Aerospace Engineering (July 31—August 4)

To infinity and beyond as we search for the kid from Mars, try not to drop the Android, discover Martian rocks, create a space craft, go alien hunting, and practice Jedi training thru obstacles. Our engineers participate in experiments and record observations in their very own engineering journal.

Zootopia Design—Micro Engineering (August 7-11)

Students will learn about zoology and the design process through animal exploration and working in engineering design teams to create cage free habitats/zoo (using area and perimeter for squares and rectangles) that will protect the chosen animal from predators and people. Our engineers will test hypothesis and conduct experiments.
