Rising 2nd-7th graders. Hands-on camp with projects such as robotics building, rocket launching, computer programming, and designing with Autodesk 3D.
Our instructors ignite passions and fuel interests in understanding how things work by using hands-on, real-world problem solving. Our STEM@Farragut Camp will challenge attendees to become critical thinkers, creative problem-solvers, and collaborative learners with their peers. The program is structured by Activities, Projects, and Problems and includes as many of the elements as time permits. If a specific project or problem really excites the class, we hope to spend more time on it. Students will also have the opportunity to have an outside break in the morning and after lunch, and swim in the pool in the afternoon.
Activities (30 mins) include: Toilet Paper Icebreaker, The Name Game, The Birthday Line Up, Telephone, Newspaper Shelter, Human Spring, Minefield, The Human Knot, and Traffic Jam.
Problems (2-3 hours) include: Eco-Design, Robotic Vehicle, Rockets Sky High, Glider Challenge, How Was That Made, and Alternative Energy.
