Electrified and Robofied Ages 8-10  

 Option STR 4  Science and Technology Extravaganza

This camp is an exciting combination of Science and Technology. This camp is for children who love to design and build with their hands. Great for our engineers of the future! Click here to see the Parent Letter.

In ELECTRICAL SCIENCE we will:

Learn about electrical circuits, bread boards and circuit boards

See the inside working of a motor and learn the relationship between Electricity and Magnetism

Create and take home a model of an electric house where they create their own switches, wiring, series and parallel light circuits for a 4 room model home.

Make, modify and take home an electric car that responds to its environment.

Interact with many different robots and understand what "makes something a Robot".

TECHNOLOGY will incorporate two programs:

LEGO® Education Pneumatics:  The students will build machines that are operated by a Pneumatic system.  As your child builds a “Robot Arm” or a “Vertical Press”, they will explore power systems and components, sequence and control, pressure, prototyping, kinetic and potential energy and much more!

LEGO® Powered Science & Technology Program: In keeping with our science activities the students will build different motorized and non-motorized models. The “Dragster” and the “Power Car” can be modified by the student teams to perform a task in the most optimal method, or the “Walker”, which operates by combining the use of pulleys and gears! Introducing gears and pulleys, structural design, forces and motion, energy and more will help all students understand how robots move.

The students will love the tin can robot that they will build and take home.
