ROBOTICS CAMP I (4th-6th grade) June 7-11, 7-8:30 pm This STEM-focused camp uses LEGO bricks, gears, axles, motors, and sensors to teach our students concepts in science, technology, mechanics, engineering, and computer programing. Campers will program their robots with motorized attachments that complete programmed tasks. This camp fills quickly.

ROBOTICS CAMP II (6th-9th grade) June 14-18, 7-8:30pm

This is a camp for those who have completed Robotics I or have 1 year of FLL team experience. Our advanced instructors make this a great camp to develop continuing programming skills.

YOUNG ENGINEERS CAMP (3rd-5th grade) June 14-16, 9am-noon

This is a project-based learning environment where experimenting is encouraged. Your young Einstein will love engaging both brain and hands simultaneously while stepping through the engineering process.

AVIATION SUMMER ACADEMY (5th-8th grade) July 6-9, 8:30am-3pm.

This 4- day course will enrich our students’ science and technology base by exposing them to “all things aviation.” Through hands-on learning and fun we will walk them through the history, theory, and science of aviation. Ground school instruction and simulators prepare them for an introductory flight in a real airplane. Whether this sparks their interest in a future career in aviation or just deepens their knowledge and love of flying, our Aviation Summer Academy is an invaluable experience!

DRONE CAMP I (5th-6th) August 3-5, 9 am-noon

DRONE CAMP II (7th-9th) August 3-5, 1pm-4pm

Campers will learn of the exciting technologies and uses of drones. They will fly simulators and real aircraft, program flights, conduct missions, and analyze airborne collected data. Aerial obstacle courses and scavenger hunts will add fun elements to their learning experience.

FUN WITH FLIGHT (1st-3rd) August 9-13, 9am-11am

Young aviators will actively participate in a collection of STEM learning activities based on aviation-themed children’s books. Hands-on activities will engage your child as they make discoveries from a glider’s form and function to an airplane's force and thrust. Our little campers have so much fun they don’t even realize how much they are learning!
