Explanation of Summer Camp Deposits:

Astronaut Academy  

As an astronaut preparing for your mission, you will explore robotics and rocketry and aviation as you prepare for your first mission!  Campers will fly a full Space Mission, visit the e-Planetarium, and fly planes with our flight simulators.  Campers will keep the robot they assemble and the rocket they construct and launch.

Rocket Camp

Be a rocket scientist! Learn how to build and launch rockets!  Campers will keep the rockets they construct; if your rocket goes too high and is not recovered, we will provide you with another rocket kit before you leave camp. Campers are encouraged to bring sunglasses to wear during rocket launches.

Robotics Camp

Build a robot to keep every day!  All camps will also work with Mindstorm EV3 robots.  (Students will not be allowed to keep the robots constructed with the Mindstorm kits.)

Arduino Camp

Learn all about electricity! This camp is for students that want to pursue automation using an Arduino Uno development board. This is a unique camp to dive into the world of automation. (Students will not be allowed to keep the Arduino kits.) We will spend a day introducing sensors, inputs, outputs and basic functions and programming.
