Introduction to Engineering — grades K-2 — June 19-23; June 26-30; July 10-14; July 17-21; and/or July 24-28 — $325
Campers will be introduced to what an engineer does and the many different problems engineers solve! Each activity begins with a story – campers then solve a problem that the main character has. All activities rely on using the Engineering Design Process and Engineering Habits of Mind.
Aeronautical Challenges — grades 3-5; 6-8 — June 19-23 — $425
Making things fly is our most popular week at Engineering Camp Charlotte! A multitude of engineering disciplines go into solving the problems of flight. Our campers will work in teams while using the Engineering Design Process and Engineering Habits of mind to complete fun activities related to things that leave the ground.
Engineering in Space — grades 3-5; 6-8 — June 26-30 — $425
Many types of engineering go into space exploration! Campers will learn how different types of engineers work together to help us explore and visit what is beyond our Earth. Campers complete engineering design challenges each day while strengthening their Engineering Design Process and Engineering Habits of Mind skills.
Mechanical Madness — grades 3-5; 6-8 — July 10-14 — $425
Machines, motors, and more! Campers learn how mechanical engineers design and create things that we use every day. Campers will work in teams while using the Engineering Design Process and Engineering Habits of Mind to complete challenges from the perspective of a mechanical engineer.
Engineering Camp Charlotte has a program for EVERYONE!
Zap! Electrical Engineering Exploration — grades 3-5; 6-8 — July 17-21 — $425
How does electricity flow through a circuit? How do engineers create circuits for different uses? Campers will work in teams using the Engineering Design Process and Engineering Habits of Mind to complete fun and challenging activities through the eyes of an electrical engineer.
Megastructures on Earth — grades 3-5; 6-8 — July 24-28 — $425
What goes into creating the biggest and strongest structures on Earth? This week campers learn how civil engineers work together to create some of the most amazing megastructures ever designed. They learn and practice the Engineering Design Process and Engineering Habits of Mind while creating their own prototypes of different structures with a variety of purposes.
Exploring the Grand Challenges — grades 9-11 — June 19-23; June 26-30; July 10-14; July 17-21 — $425
Engineering’ are a focused collection of the greatest challenges humanity currently faces. Campers will spend the week learning more about these challenges, learning about the engineering disciplines which are working to tackle these challenges, and begin to propose solutions of their own. New challenges studied every summer!
