Discovering, learning, prototyping, designing, testing—repeat! All these elements make up design thinking, a process that helps engineers develop innovative solutions to challenges in our changing world. This hands-on camp will immerse your child in the wonderful world of engineering. Campers will experiment with making and operating a pulley system, learn about the flow of electricity through squishy circuits, discover the difference between different types of bridges, and more! Engineering is all around us and this camp will have your future engineer viewing the world in a new and unique way.
