For Middle School Students
Monday, July 23, 2018 through Friday, July 27, 2018
9:00AM - 3:00PM
Cost: $400

Campers will explore robotics, virtual reality (VR) and unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) while having fun and experiencing the world of science and engineering. By applying computer science, engineering and creative skills to innovative projects, campers will gain insight into all three of these areas through hands-on experiences. Campers will build and program their robots, which they will take home. Campers will create a 3D virtual world that can be experienced with state-of-the-art 3D headsets and will learn to pilot drones and explore the capabilities of aerial photography. These activities will enable campers to have a meaningful introduction to some of the fundamental principles of science and engineering, improve their critical and computational thinking abilities and advance their teamwork skills by collaborating with their fellow campers to create solutions.
