INVENT AMAZING PROJECTS WITH AWESOME TECHNOLOGY

Our technology labs give students the opportunity to put their imagination to use as they create, design, experiment, build, discover and invent projects that range from robots to move set props using recycled household products.

Students will be challenged to build rovers, clocks, solar vehicles, boats, fans, bridges, and more!

One of the key differences in our camps is the campers are given the freedom to create with their supplies. Our staff will be there to provide guidance but we look forward to a variety of outputs.

ESTEAM camps labs are integrated to provide exciting experience for all students.

BATTLE BOTS

Campers learn to design and build their own motorized battle cars. Using principles of simple and complex machines, gearing, and mechanical advantage, students will try to flip, push, or smash their opponent’s battle vehicles.

Students learn the use of mechanical lifts, drills, ramps and more to disable or overcome other bots.

Ages 9 – 14

(AKA SECRET AGENT) CAMP ​

Join the elite group of recruits to become a spy-in-training. Agents-in-training will learn about how to break or make codes, learn coding, surveillance techniques, critical thinking and solve logic puzzles. Additional training such as obstacle courses, robot recon and rescue, and developing disguises are part of the new skills they will learn.

Agents-in-training will receive their super-secret mission during each camp.

Ages 9 – 14

FORENSIC SCIENCE

This fun, interactive, project-oriented forensic science course is designed to engage students in this truly fascinating area of science!

In Forensics Lab, campers will learn about investigative techniques and use chemistry, molecular biology and physics to explore mysteries throughout the week. 

They’ll learn how forensic experts use science to discover the hidden clues left behind at crime scenes and how that helps investigators solve difficult cases. 

Jr. Detectives will become immersed in roles as crime scene investigators as they work together examining and analyzing evidence needed to solve the mystery of WHO DID IT!

LEGO® MOVIE MAKING / STOP MOTION

Kids work in pairs to create a short story, draw it out, and build it with LEGO® Bricks, and then they bring it to life on film.

Each session students will choose from THEMED LEGO® KITS from MINECRAFT to SUPERHEROS (and more) and using those kits, create their very own movie, complete with sound effects & even music.

A copy of all projects will be provided via a screening link from our YouTube page for screening purposes.

Ages 6-12

TEEN FILMMAKING (2 WEEK CAMP)

Students will learn the art of film making as they work together to write a short script, break it down, cast, schedule, film it, and edit it all together.

Students will work with industry professionals and be assigned specific roles/departments.

Final projects will be available for screening via our YouTube Channel.

BOARD GAME CREATORS

We combine Entrepreneurship, Art, Game Play, Technology & FUN and our campers LOVE IT! This camp will challenge and inspire your child to see the world in different ways, primarily 3 dimensional! Throughout the week, students will play many different types of board games then work in teams to design a Board Game, complete with rules of engagement and then pitch that board game to a panel of Local Board Game Geeks in hopes that their game will be chosen and receive seed money to continue with the dream of creating their own Board Game!

Ages 8-14

U-TUBERS UNITE

Students will spend this 1 Week Camp Series filming run-and-gun style, capturing the events, activities, and people around them. Once the footage has been captured, students will work together to edit and deliver the footage in an exciting show format that excites and captivates their audience.

SPACE INVADERS

Trainees learn their ideas can become a reality as they use LEGO® Mindstorms robotic technologies to create engineering solutions for real-world problems.

We will journey to the edge of the universe in a robotic adventure that glimpses a future when humankind will transform distant planets into livable habitats.

Trainees build humanoid robots, roving vehicles, and mechanical machines of increasing complexity. Then they learn how to program their ’droids to walk, talk, and even see! Take your child’s creativity to the next level with LEGO® technology!

Trainees work as a team to build and test their own designs challenges. The week culminates with spirited contests as trainees test the robots they spent the week building, programming, and testing.

LEGO® MAKER

Student participants will experience several exciting activities over the course of each sessions. Every skill level, ranging from beginner to super geek, will need to fire up their brains and prepare to work in cooperative engineering teams.

The Maker camp includes the following!

Coding Challenges, Battle Bots, Amazing Machines, LEGO® Master Builders, Simple Machines, Architecture, LEGO® Story Builder, LEGO® Mosaic, LEGO® Ev3, NXT, and WeDo Robotics systems,  LEGO® Drones,  and MORE!

FAQ

We believe in letting children learn and explore at their own pace. Our students work in teams and our instructors tailor teaching for each team. This allows us to spend more time explaining fundamental concepts to some students while introducing advanced engineering and programming challenges to others.

Our mission is to provide fundamental and advanced disciplines as it applies to today’s standards. We motivate our young creatives to set new paths for greater possibilities by building personal portfolios to take home at the end of the week.

Join us this summer to see how their new path unfolds.

Although we use over 10,000 LEGO® bricks & elements and the amazing LEGO® Education products in our program, we are not affiliated with LEGO® or LEGO® Education.

We believe in small class sizes (maximum: 14 students per educational director and one helper). The children are teamed up in small groups so that only 2-4 students share a kit. The class size is usually limited to 24 students with 2 camp directors and 2 – 4 counselors, the minimum size is 8.
