Description

9AM-12PM: Beginner Engineers

NextGen SmartyPants' Beginner Technic® Engineers teaches kids about Engineering components and Physics concepts through fun and engaging projects.  Learn how to use Gears, Pulleys, Springs, Axle, Bushings, and more as you build and design your own systems.  Students build Rovers, Cranes, Catapults, and more as they learn about angles, forces, and momentum and apply the math skills they learn in school via challenging, hands-on experiences.

 

12PM-1PM: Lunch Break

Students should bring nut-free lunch, snacks, and juice to eat and enjoy as they get hungry throughout the day.  Water and restrooms are available.  If weather permits, campers will be taken outside to walk and enjoy the playground nearby.

 

1PM-4PM: Beginner Electrical Circuits with LittleBits

Demystify Electricity with this introductory class on Circuits.  Kids are introduced to fundamental concepts in electronics by building small electronic projects.  Students learn about Power, Controls, Logic, and more by building circuits to control lights, sounds, motion, wireless communications, and sensors.  Kids learn about Batteries, LEDs, Speakers, and Motors and help them develop insights into how everyday objects around them work.  Circuits provides “enlightening” hands-on experiences for kids!  

 

Early-Morning Drop-Off and Late-Afternoon Pick-Up services are available here.
