Engineering Camp Charlotte
hosts a program for EVERYONE!

Introduction to Engineering for K – 2
Using fun activities in small and collaborative groups, campers will be introduced to what engineering is.  Activities focus around the Engineering Design Process and Engineering Habits of mind. All activities also anchor to a fun story. New activities each year! Campers will have a chance to share what they learned with their families and friends during our Future Engineers Exhibition on Friday.

General Engineering for Elementary and Middle School
Campers learn just how diverse the field of engineering is with a week of fun and exciting Engineering Design Challenges! Each summer brings new activities and new challenges.  Participants will use the Engineering Design Process and Engineering Habits of Mind to conquer challenges alongside their teammates. Campers will show off their creations from the week during our Future Engineers Exhibition, which is open to family and friends.

General Engineering for High School
The 14 Grand Challenges of Engineering is our focus for the week!  Participants will complete activities related to the Grand Challenges while practicing the Engineering Design Process and Engineering Habits of Mind.  At the conclusion of the week, participants choose one of the Grand Challenges to address in more detail. They create a prototype for a solution and prepare a presentation to showcase for our families during our Future Engineers Exhibition on Friday.  A community partner will be joining us to help participants with challenges.  Campers are grouped with current NCSU engineering majors – allowing them to get the inside scoop on what it is like to study engineering at the college level.

Introducing NEW PROGRAMS
for Summer 2020!

Mechanical Engineering: Machines, Motors, and More
With a focus on machines, motors, and anything that moves, our mechanical engineering week will keep kids of all engineering levels engaged and having fun! Each activity will take campers through the engineering design process to solve a problem rooted in mechanical engineering.  As the week progresses, campers will learn just how many types of engineers must work together to solve problems.  Campers will have a chance to showcase what they learned during our Future Engineers Exhibition on Friday!

Aerospace Engineering: Earth’s Atmosphere and Beyond
Know someone who loves making things fly, float, or take off?  This year’s aerospace engineering week will bring you BRAND NEW activities – but don’t worry, rockets will still be involved!  Campers will learn what it takes to think like an aerospace engineer.  They will practice working through the engineering design process by completing exciting challenges each day.   Families and friends are invited to share the excitement by attending our Future Engineers Exhibition on Friday!
