The Raspberry Pi computer is a small, inexpensive and versatile computer that can be incorporated into countless fun and educational enterprises.  In this camp students will modify a project box to include an arcade joystick and buttons.  Participants […]
  • Robotic Gladiators (Grades 7-10)- Based on the popular Wrestling Robots, Robotic Gladiators incorporates newly designed, bigger, faster, tougher and rougher Robo-Chassis that will challenge each other in the Robo-Coliseum. Students will learn and practice hand and power tool use and the basic principles of design as they construct complex mechanical devices that will mount atop the remote controlled vehicles. […]
  • Rocket Dragsters (Grades 7-10)- Can you build something from scratch that goes over 100mph? 150mph? MORE? The fastest vehicles built by students in this class get near 200mph in under 3 seconds! Rocket dragsters are built from foam, pvc and other materials. Think rocket powered pinewood derby cars racing on wires. They are designed to fly along a 200 […]
  • Rube Goldberg Machines (Grades 3-5)- We’ve all seen them, but not everyone knows them by name. Rube Goldberg machines are contraptions made of house- hold items, junk and just about anything that can be connected together in a convoluted arrangement that can be set off to produce a chain reaction of motion that typically ends in some sort of grand […]
  • Rube Goldberg Machines (Grades 3-5) -BCTC Georgetown- We’ve all seen them, but not everyone knows them by name. Rube Goldberg machines are contraptions made of house- hold items, junk and just about anything that can be connected together in a convoluted arrangement that can be set off to produce a chain reaction of motion that typically ends in some sort of grand […]
  • Rube Goldberg Machines (Grades 5-8)- We’ve all seen them, but not everyone knows them by name. Rube Goldberg machines are contraptions made of house- hold items, junk and just about anything that can be connected together in a convoluted arrangement that can be set off to produce a chain reaction of motion that typically ends in some sort of grand […]
  • Tesla Tykes (Grades 1-3)- Tesla was the master of electricity and father of alternating current. Like Da Vinci Kids, Tesla Tykes is a mixture of projects, demonstrations and actives but will focus on Tesla-inspired projects that relate to electricity and simple circuitry.         
  • Wargames: BowMaker (Grades 5-8)- For centuries, the bow and arrow has been a valuable tool used by cultures around the world. Building a well-functioning bow is no easy task, and this class is designed to give students some insight into the process.

  • Wargames: SwordCraft (Grades 5-8)- Swords have been around for about 5,000 years and are simple and easy to use. Well, not really. There is much more science and engineering to a sword than meets the eye, and skillfully using one takes considerable practice. In this class, students will make wooden model swords and learn about engineering related topics such […]
  • Water Wars (Grades 5-8)- Prepare to get wet in this water soaked engineering based class. It’s the middle of summer and it’s hot, so lets cool off by building various gadgets that squirt, spray, stream and launch water in a variety of ways. Students will explore the basics of pressure, fluid flow, and engineering design as we build air […]
  • YouTube 4 Newbs (Grades 5-8)- YouTube makes it possible for anyone with a camera to reach a massive audience. The best of the best make it look easy, but there is a LOT of work behind the scenes of those Vlogs, Gamers, Pranks and Stunts.
