What's Included

Blue Sky Thinking- How much technology is too much technology for children? Some believe that kids should be interacting with people instead of computer screens because there are important social skills that are only learned through person to person interaction. Other believe that knowledge of technology is essential to survival in this high tech age. TECH IT OUT believe that both are essential to well-rounded future scientist, technologist, engineer and mathematician. Being able to write a sentences with a pencil is just as important as being able to upload an assignment to your teachers website. TECH IT OUT - Blue Sky Thinking is a high tech- low tech adventure into aerospace. Aerospace Engineering- Aircraft Design Challenge- Day 1 and Day 2 of camp, students explore how engineers have developed rockets over the years, using simple technology they will construct models a variety of flying aircraft such as gliders, hot air balloons, and pop rockets.
