Description

9AM-12PM: Intermediate Engineers

NextGen SmartyPants' 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: Arduino Circuit Playground

Demystify the world of electronics with this fun, introductory course on Beginner Circuits! Circuit Playground invites students to explore fundamental concepts in electrical circuits and coding in a dynamic development environment. Students engage in creative problem-solving by constructing and programming interactive, hands-on projects that incorporate colorful LEDs, matrices, music, motion and light sensors, game controllers, and so much more.

If the student has taken Scratch Coding with us, they will also see a familiar drag-and-drop programming interface. This further helps students who are new to circuits to start controlling and designing their projects. Finally, we transition students to text-based Javascript and Python coding and also transport the code to a full-fledged Arduino board, so students can get with making much more advanced electronics quickly.

Circuit Playground provides “enlightening” experiences and introduces electrical concepts in a fun and approachable way for Students.

 

 

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

 

Notes:

  • All Students are welcome to eat snacks throughout the day and join us for lunch between 12PM-1PM
  • 'Please' no nuts of any kind may be brought into our maker studio.  
  • Water and restrooms are available. 
  • If weather permits, campers will be taken outside to walk and enjoy the playground nearby.
  • All Campers are expected to be fully self-sufficient and on respectful behavior at all times. 
  • Students are expected to address any special needs, medications, and bathroom responsibilities for themselves. 
  • Please pack an extra change of clothes, just in case of spillage or other accidents.
  • Early-morning drop-off and/or late-afternoon pickup are available.
