Our week long Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math (STEAM) based programs are packed with fun, creative, hands-on, team-based learning blended with traditonal, outdoor summer camp activities. Any of these programs will keep your child engaged and learning all summer long, while still having summer time fun! Small classes are limited to 12 students per session. Campers have options of participating in larger summer camp activities throughout the week. Each session is $285 for each 5 day long Camp from 8am-4pm. Core STEAM classes run from 9am-3pm. Before and after care is available. Sign up for one week or more of our age appropriate programs.
WeDo BASICS, ADVANCED 1 & 2:
Designed for the elementary learner, in grades 1st– 3rd. Lego WeDo introduces students to the world of robotics by using working motors, sensors and age-appropriate computer programming. During this week long program, students will build animals, soccer players and other characters, then add movement with fun, drag and drop software. Your child will have fun while developing his or her skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
For campers in grades 2nd -5th. This is the next step in the Lego STEM adventure. It may be called WeDo, but this is an entirely new and different adventure with new parts, bigger motors and bluetooth capability! It's more advanced, but age appropriate with coding and reverse engineering techniques. During this week long program, students will work on various projects building animals, vehicles and structures. Your child will have fun while developing his or her skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
In the EHT PAL WaterBotics Summer Camp Challenge, campers in grades 4-9 will engage in problem-based learning as they collaborate to design, build, test, and redesign underwater robots made of LEGO® components, motors, propellers, and other materials. The robots are developed through an interactive engineering design process. Student teams complete a series of design challenges or “missions” that increase in complexity and require more sophisticated solutions. Ultimately, students produce a fully functional underwater robot capable of maneuvering in a three foot deep pool. Visit www.waterbotics.org for more information about WaterBotics.
MINDSTORMS NXT, EV3 Beyond Basics, Pro and Advanced:
For campers grade 4th-9th. With LEGO MINDSTORMS you can turn LEGO creations into live robots that follow your every command. Work with motors, sensors, a programmable brick, LEGO Technic elements and remote control, to create and command robots of your wildest imagination, including 5 cool robot characters. Follow 3D building instructions and use the application to command your robot. Program robots to walk, talk and move via the intuitive software program, the programmable brick and EHT PAL laptop. This hands-on program allows students to work independently and at their own pace. With the guidance of EHT PAL Robotics counselors, children will learn and develop their skills.
In the EHT PAL SeaPerch Summer Camp Challenge, campers in grades 4th-9th are involved in an innovative underwater robotics program that equips students with the resources they need to build an underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV). Students build the ROV from a kit following a curriculum that teaches basic engineering and science concepts with a marine engineering theme. The SeaPerch Program provides students with the opportunity to learn about robotics, engineering, science, and mathematics (STEM) while building an underwater ROV as part of a science and engineering technology curriculum. Throughout the project, students will learn engineering concepts, problem solving, teamwork, and technical applications.
MACHINES AND MECHANISMS:
For campers in grades 1st-3rd that have complete the WeDo classes and for 4th and 5th graders beginning the Lego STEM adventure. This is the next step as you progress along journey to become a member of one of our top notch competition teams. (if you choose) In our summer camp program, students will build and explore machines and mechanisms, investigate motorized machines, calibrate and capture wind, and study gearing mechanisms while enjoying some summer time activities.
SERVO CITY / ACTOBOTICS ROBOTICS:
In the EHT PAL Servo City/ActoboticsSummer Camp Challenge, campers in grades 5th-11th will use the Actobotics and Modern Robotics system to design and build a remote controlled robot to conquer the PAL modified 2017 First Tech Challenge. If you can dream up a design, you can build it. Actobotics is a complete design system for students who are serious about engineering. Featuring heavy-duty, aircraft-grade aluminum elements for construction, powerful drive motors, and expandable capabilities, Actobotics provides the ideal platform for creativity. This is a great course for students thinking about joining PAL's First Tech League Challenge Team.
CONCEPTS OF FLIGHT:
For campers in grades 4th-9th. Members will learn the basics of model rocket design and flight then build and fly model rockets of varous sizes and shapes, using items found around the home. We will then test their flight capabilities for height and distance. We will also constuct a glider and see its how far it will glide and a parachute to test how much of a load it will safely carry.
