Inspiring Future Engineers Summer Youth Engineering Program

July 20 - 24, 2020 | Virtual Event

Join us for a virtual week of science innnovation and exploration!

About the Camp

Campers are introduced to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education through a series of engineering-oriented activities. Children will be divided into groups to complete age-appropriate and challenging activities. Tasks such as building suspension bridges, designing future cities, and using chemistry to make sweet treats allow students to build problem solving skills, discover how things work, learn math and science in a fun and safe environment, explore engineering as a career option, and engage in real world engineering problems.

Morning Session:
Live instruction 9:00 am - 11:00 am daily - Ages 7-9

Afternoon Session:
Live instruction 11:30 am - 1:30 pm daily - Ages 10-12

Cost

The virtual summer camp will cost $175 if you register before June 15th, or $185 if you register after June 15th.

Program Features

This year, we are excited to offer our summer engineering program in a virtual environment! Each day of our summer program will begin with a thematic intro activity, followed by the Engineering Challenge of the Day. Utilizing online conferencing tools, campers will break-out into small groups each day as they make progress on their projects alongside a live instructor. 

This years summer program will incorporate computer programming/coding, 3D Modeling, hands-on building challenges, science experiments and so much more!
