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. (JOIN US July 5-9; July 12-16; July 19-23 OR July 26-20)
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. Looking for a sample lesson? Check out our segment on WBTV! (JOIN US August 2-6)
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. 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. (JOIN US July 5-9; July 12-16; July 19-23 OR July 26-30).
programs for Summer 2021!
Aerospace Engineering focus week – FULL!
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. Click here to check out the fun we had in 2019! (JOIN US July 5-9)
Civil Engineering focus week
Does your camper love to build things? Join us for our civil engineering week where the focus is structures – how to build them bigger and better! We can see the work of civil engineers all around us – roads, bridges, buildings, canals, and even airports and sewage systems. This week campers will step into the shoes of a civil engineer to propose and design ideas to solve problems. Campers will use the engineering design process as they work in teams to find creative ways to solve these challenges. (JOIN US July 12-16)
Electrical Engineering focus week
A BRAND NEW program for 2021! Campers learn not only how to construct different circuits, but also how many problems can be solved using electrical engineering. Motors, lights, buzzers, switches, and wires will fill their days while campers work in teams to solve problems rooted in electrical engineering. (JOIN US July 19-23)
Mechanical Engineering focus week
Whirling, twirling, opening, closing, moving up and down – if it moves we work on it this week! 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. (JOIN US July 26-30)
