STEM Design Challengers
STEM Design Challenger Week of June 24
$325 Full Day $230 Half Day
During STEM Design Challengers, we will build fast and think faster, while having fun in the Middle School design lab.
Working from specific design challenges, and using common materials and simple tools, campers will get to design and build creations to meet design challenge criteria. Campers will learn to become accustomed to the practice of “iteration," or making refinements to your project to improve it. Along the way they will learn the basics of thinking like a designer and get comfortable taking risks. In the MS design lab we believe that failure is expected and an essential part of the design process. Examples of design challenges which may be offered include the following: invent a brand new sport, build a bridge from popsicle sticks, design the ultimate living space for a middle schooler, and design a boat to be used in our annual cardboard boat regatta. STEM camp will run from 9am-12:30pm daily with campers having the option to leave after lunch or join base camp for afternoons of swimming, ice skating and fun filled activities on campus.
