3D Design & BUILD W/ROCK OASIS (4 DAY WEEK)

July 2ND -5th

Our campers/designers will imagine and build their own virtual toys, structures, and tools as they learn 3D computer-aided design (CAD) and invention prototyping. We’ll learn the Engineering Design Process and re-create virtual 3D objects we built in TinkerCAD in Minecraft as interactive, expandable--and destructible--structures.

Inventors Camp

July 8-12th

This week, inventors will design their own physical and virtual toys, spaceships, spy devices, and anything else they can imagine. We’ll create devices like electrically conductive cards and secret messages with circuits, build touch-sensitive game controllers with the MaKey MaKey microcontroller, and transform play doh & water into living circuits.

LIGHTS & MOTION

 July 15th -19th  

Prepare for a mega light show this week as campers put electricity to work. Campers learn the basics of circuitry using simple motors and lights to brighten up their wood shop and laser cutter projects. As the week progresses campers expand upon that toolset with programmable electronics and real light fixtures to make wild room lighting and more!

Bot Battle Camp with LEGO ROBOTICS

July 22ND - 26TH 

The campers/robotics engineers will team up to build and code robots that become superheroes, able to search the castle, find hidden objects, and do friendly battle. Building, racing, and battling bots teach us coding and robotics at the same time. Campers will work with Lego Robotics EV3 & Mindstorms as well as work on building their own take home robots with materials from our Maker Space.

SCRATCH Coding & Circuits/ROCK OASIS OPTION

July 29TH - AUG 2ND

This week, budding programmers will create and code new worlds in Minecraft and design video games in Scratch, the visual programming language for kids from MIT. We’ll start our coding sessions with physical games that teach us computational thinking. Then we’ll build contraptions with  circuits and program virtual robots. We’ll build video games, animated movies, and quizzes for family and friends in Scratch code and along the way learn programming, as well as creativity, problem-solving, and storytelling skills.

Campers will spend the morning at Maker Space (8:30am-12:30pm) and the afternoon 12:30pm - 4pm) at Rock Oasis, climbing. Please specify when registering Full Day Maker or Maker/Rock Oasis. Limited space available.

Maker Mad Science

Aug 6th -9th (4 Day Week)

 Matter is everything we can touch and see; experiments will allow each young scientist to discover the basic chemistry making up the entire universe. While investigating chemical reactions, students will be learning about how new substances are formed and engineer experiments to cause different physical and chemical changes. Campers will make their own Storm Glass, test their physics knowledge with Kerbal and try out molecular gastronomy in our on-site kitchen classroom.

Space tech camp

Aug.12th -16th  

Budding rocket scientists and pilots hand-build planes, sky cruisers, H2O shuttles, pop airplanes, and parachute rockets to discover fundamental STEM concepts that power us into space. Our planes and rockets will apply lift, thrust and drag, and help us discover such forces as gravity, energy, propulsion, acceleration, and velocity, forces involved in moving a car down the road, pedaling a bicycle, or shooting a rocket into space. We’ll launch into the universe of the Engineering Design Process as young scientists and inventors experiment, create, test, and prove their understanding of new concepts and skills in physics and aeronautical engineering. Campers will visit the U of T Planetarium for a private show & tour of the observatory, while checking out what astrophysicists really do at work!

Maker Lab/ROCK OASIS OPTION

Aug.19th - 23rd

This week campers will think way outside the box, this is the camp for kids interested in DIY, making, creating, crafting, hacking, tinkering, and discovery! Discover the science behind circuits, lights, and creative cardboard fabrication. We'll make paper circuits, sound-making devices, and giant structures, then combine them all to make our structures light up and create some noise.

Campers will spend the morning at Maker Space (8:30am-12:30pm) and the afternoon 12:30pm - 4pm) at Rock Oasis, climbing. Please specify when registering Full Day Maker or Maker/Rock Oasis. Limited space available.

Minecraft & Game Design

Aug 26TH-30th

Campers will learn about the evolution of gaming from old school arcade style games to today's worldwide phenomenom Minecraft. From building their own arcade style game with all the bell's and whistles to coding a creation they can play with friends. Budding storytellers and artists will create worlds while learning game design in both Scratch & (for the more advanced) Unity. 


*This year we have partnered with Rock Oasis for 3 weeks of Maker camp.
