2023 Jul 17-21 Summer Camp - 5 days - Ages 7-12 - Amazing Race & Hardware Engineering: Get Wired with MaKey MaKey 


Morning Course:

Amazing Race: The Engineering of Travel


111 years ago airplanes had not even made their first flight, yet today we can fly to the other side of the world in 12 hours! It is thanks to advances in technology that we are able to explore so much of the world. In this class, teams will have to work together to see who is able to travel the farthest around the world. This trek around the world will require students to design their very own boat, plane, and even a rocket!


Afternoon Course:

Hardware Engineering: Get Wired with MaKey MaKey


Imagine designing a piano using celery or creating a custom digital training program. Now, envision playing video games using just your body, a bit of wire and your own imagination. In our hardware engineering program, students engineer their own customized video game controllers using a Makey-Makey device and materials that can be found in just about any kitchen. Through application of circuitry, acoustical engineering and video game design, students discover new ways to interact with technology, all while creating unique designs in a fun collaborative environment.
