STEM Design Challengers 1
Week of July 2
$240 (prorated due to July 4 holiday)
STEM Design Challengers offers campers the opportunity problem-solve like an engineer using the Design Thinking process. This week’s theme will focus on water craft. Friendly competition will motivate teams to build and test rafts, boats and other flotation devices using only simple materials. As campers complete various design challenges, emphasis will be placed on developing social skills necessary to work effectively in groups including listening, considering the ideas of others, empathy, and compromising. The week will culminate with our 2nd annual cardboard boat regatta where campers will put their engineering prowess to the test by building and paddling full scale boats capable of transporting passengers across a pool.
