In this camp students will exercise their creativity and explore engineering as they learn how to design and build a variety of things, including model buildings, weight-bearing structures, and powered vehicles. Students will start by learning how to read a blueprint and then use foam core to build a detailed 3-D scale model of the Kopernik Observatory. Next they will learn about designing structures that have to carry loads and construct a bridge from wooden craft sticks and test it to see which team’s bridge holds the most weight. Finally students will design and build a mousetrap-powered car and race the cars to determine which team’s car is the fastest and travels the farthest. This will be a great opportunity to test out the design process and turn ideas into reality. *Camp tuition includes an additional $20 material fee.
