Already looking forward to summer? See our SUMMER camp options below or scroll down for AFTER SCHOOL options!
INTRODUCTION TO ENGINEERING — June 27-July 1; July 11-15; July 18-22; and/or July 25-29 — gr K-2 — $315 Campers will be introduced to what an engineer does and the many different problems engineers solve! Each activity begins with a story then campers solve a problem that the main character has using the Engineering Design Process and Engineering Habits of Mind.
TEST FLIGHT — June 27-July 1 — gr 3-5; gr 6-8 — $415 A multitude of engineering disciplines go into making things fly, both within our atmosphere and beyond. Campers will use the Engineering Design Process to solve problems from rocket launches to wind power to aerodynamics and more!
URBAN INFRASTRUCTURE CHALLENGE — July 11-15 — gr 3-5; gr 6-8 — $415 How do civil engineers create structures – buildings, roads, bridges, and more – to help our society function? Campers dive into the job of a civil engineer this week! Each day campers will complete activities related to civil engineering and see how it connects to other disciplines. If your child likes to build with anything they can get their hands on – then this week is for them!
ENGINEERING ON THE SPEEDWAY — July 18-22 — gr 3-5; gr 6-8 — $415 Cars are more than just four wheels and a motor! Many types of engineers work on making cars more efficient, faster, and safer than ever before. This week campers work on engineering challenges related to anything that moves on a road. They will focus on solving problems that not only are addressed by engineers now, but are going to be a focus in the future, too!
MECHANICAL MAYHEM — July 25-29 — gr 3-5; gr 6-8 — $415 Mechanical engineering is the focus during a week filled with motors, machines, and anything that moves. Campers will use the Engineering Design Process and Engineering Habits of Mind to address challenges related to mechanical engineering, as well as the disciplines that work closely with mechanical engineers the field.
ENGINEERING IS EVERYWHERE — August 1-5 — gr 3-5; gr 6-8 — $415 Engineering is a wider reaching field than many think. Campers will spend the week learning about all of the different types of engineers and explore how engineers solve problems and help people. Kids will focus on using the Engineering Design Process and Engineering Habits of Mind and will be thinking like an engineer by the end of the week!
THE GRAND CHALLENGES — June 27-July 1; July 11-15; July 18-22; and/or July 25-29 — gr 3-5; gr 6-8 — $415 The ’14 Grand Challenges of Engineering’ is 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.
Summer program location: Queens University of Charlotte, McEwen Hall, 1900 Selwyn Avenue Charlotte NC 28207
