Registration is limited to 30. If you sign up by May 1, 2016, you will be entered to win a FREE registration.
Summer camp for middle school students
The SEEK Program is designed to be a fun and engaging educational experience, that will utilize a hands-on design curriculum. Students will work in teams, using their knowledge to solve problems and create products while discovering the underlying math and science principles involved in these
During the week, the students will take on a project, culminating with a presentation, design competition and physical competitions that all parents are encouraged to attend.

An engineering summer camp for girls to explore science, engineering and math through the art of making!
Rising 6th and 7th grade girls are invited to come and learn that armed with an understanding of math and science, a bit of engineering knowhow, and boundless creativity, nothing is impossible. During this week, girls will work together to explore the creative process and craft items that have both form and function. They will learn new computer tools to help make their creative ideas into actual designs and then use the Martinsville Fab Lab to build a final product.
Technology is everywhere in our day to day life! At the heart of it all lies computer programming, strange words in what looks like a foreign language, typed on a computer screen that give life to so many things around us. In this camp we will use Arduino microcontrollers to explore how computer programming can be used to manipulate things like lights, switches, sensors, and motors. This camp is open to rising 6th and 7th grade boys and girls.
9:00 am - 12:00 pm, daily
$60, includes snacks

New College Institute will work with the American Red Cross on June 22 from 12:00 p.m until 6:00 p.m in Lecture Hall C of the Baldwin Building to to conduct a blood drive in honor of William Dulaney Lewis, MD.
An engineering summer camp for boys to explore different types of engineering through several hands-on, teambased design projects.
Rising 6th and 7th grade boys are invited to come and learn that armed with an understanding of math and science, a bit of engineering know how, and boundless creativity, nothing is impossible.
During this week, boys will work together with engineering faculty from NCI’s Academy for Engineering and Technology to explore the engineering design process and learn tools to help take these ideas beyond the abstract into real life. We’ll teach you all of the necessary skills to not just watch, but do!
So, come and explore, solve and create with us and discover how you can be the next engineer.
