Grades: 3–8
Dates: June 24th–28th
Times: 9:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m.
Cost: $550
This session will help students design, build, and program LEGO Robots using the engineering design process. Throughout the week, students will be challenged with several open-ended design activities. The week will start with activities focusing on stability in design and move to other topics, such as gearing, weight distribution, and momentum, as the students incorporate programming and motors into their designs.

Dates: July 1st–3rd, 5th
Times: 9:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m.
Cost: $440
This session will help students design, build, and program LEGO Robots using the engineering design process. Throughout the week, students will be challenged with several open-ended design activities. Projects will include robotic snowplows, carnival rides, puppet shows, and many more! Register here.

Engineering for Pixar Characters **FULL**
Grades: 1–3
Dates: July 8–12
Times: 9:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m.
Cost: $550
This workshop will explore different types of engineering as students design solutions for problems that their favorite Pixar characters face. From building a robotic companion for Wall-E to designing musical instruments for Miguel in Coco, we’ll explore the Pixar universe and engage in all sorts of engineering design! Register here.

Animal Planet Engineering **FULL**
Grades: 3–5th
Dates: July 15–19
Times: 9:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m.
Cost: $550
This workshop is perfect for animal lovers! We’ll learn about all sorts of animals throughout the week, and solve engineering design problems to help zoos, pets, ocean wildlife, and dinosaurs. We’ll end the week by combining our knowledge of animal adaptations and defense mechanisms to design our own animals. Register here. 

Game Design Engineering
Grades: 6–8
Dates: July 15th–19th
Times: 9:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m.
Cost: $550
In this week-long workshop, students will explore game design of board games, arcade games, and computer games. Students will learn about the engineering design process through play-testing and iterative design using both craft materials, LEGO, and Scratch coding. Register here.

 

 

Girls Week **FULL**
Grades: 2–5
Dates: July 22nd–26th
Times: 9:oo a.m.–3:00 p.m.
Cost: $550
The week will consist of open-ended mini-challenges using different materials and new technologies culminating in a larger user-centered design project. Students will explore the topics of makerspaces, robotics, space travel, and user-centered design. The focus will be engineering, but special attention will be paid to the client and understanding problems to better address problems in design solutions. Register here.

Co-Ed Robotics #2 **FULL**
Grades: 3–8
Dates: July 29th–August 2nd
Times: 9:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m.
Cost: $550

High School Engineering
Grades: 9–12
Dates: July 29th–August 2nd
Times: 9:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m.
Cost: $600
Join us as we explore  engineering through problem solving, original design creation, and hands-on building projects. Students will be challenged to develop an “engineering mindset” featuring critical thinking, teamwork, persistence, and the ability to create innovative solutions to complex challenges. Students have the opportunity to develop practical skills in a variety of topics including: electronics, programming and app development with MicroBits and Thunkable; creative problem solving and design with Rube Goldberg machines built from scratch; and a fusion of art and function with personalized wearable technology.
Register here.

Spy Workshop: Engineering a Secret Mission **FULL**
Grades: 3–5
Dates: August 5th–9th
Times: 9:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m.
Cost: $550
This secret mission workshop will train your students to be both spies and engineers. We’ll design gadgets like flashlights, periscopes, and centrifuges; learn about the science behind genetics to narrow down suspects; and explore robotics, circuits, engineering design, and forensics as we build up our spy tool belts, and begin a mission! Register here.

Pirate Engineering **ONLY ONE SPOT REMAINING**
Grades: 1–3
Dates: August 12th–16th
Times: 9:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m.
Cost: $550
This session will explore engineering design with a side of sea shanties, as we embark on our own pirate adventure. We’ll begin the week by designing boats to help us traverse the seas. We’ll make prosthetics (peglegs, hook hands, and eye patches, anyone?) to help pirates complete everyday tasks. We’ll also create life vests and other tools to help us on a treasure hunt! Register here.
