Lots of youngsters love nerf guns, and the only thing more fun than shooting foam darts at each other is modifying our favorite model so that it shoots farther and faster and has more bling. In this toy led camp(and yes, there are plenty of adult engineering lessons to be learned studying how toys work), we will provide each student with a popular model of nerf gun and proceed to mod the heck out of it. We’ll overvolt the motors, add flashing lights, customized mechanical parts and maybe even a laser sight. Students will learn about electrical circuits and mechanical design as they tweak the shooters. Toward the end of the camp, students will design and construct reactive targets to use in shootout competitions.
One more thing… Students keep the nerf guns after the camp!
