Each summer the curriculum changes, so no camp experience is ever the same!

Each team of campers is led by two ‘coaches’. All staff will participate in a selective hiring process and attend two extensive trainings, one led by NC State’s College of Engineering and one by Cynosure Learning L3C.

Full background checks of all staff members are conducted each season.

Flashback to Past Seasons

We had SO much fun during our past seasons. Our campers studied aerospace, mechanical, and civil engineering in our first ever specialty weeks. We had K2 students reading stories and solving problems the main characters had using engineering. We had high school students designing and presenting prototypes to address one of the 14 Grand Challenges of their choice. We had elementary and middle school students communicating and collaborating their way through the engineering design process to solve problems from a multitude of engineering disciplines.
