Engineering for Girls (June 5-8)

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 knowledge, 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.

The girls will also be introduced to a one-day lesson about cybersecurity emphasizing the importance of internet safety.

 

 

Engineering for Boys (June 12-15) 

An engineering summer camp for boys to explore different types of engineering through several hands-on, team-based 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!

The camp will also feature a one-day lesson on cybersecurity in an effort to help students develop an understanding of the responsibility of internet protection.

So, come and explore, solve and create with us and discover how you can be the next engineer.

 

 

Coding Camp - Programming Your World (June 19-22) 

Coding represents a growing career field with many applications to everyday life! This camp will introduce students to coding challenges and give them ideas for exploring future career opportunities.

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 gives 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.
