2100 Wootton Parkway, Rockville, MD, 20850

Robotics: Disaster Relief

Campers 9-14 years old

When disaster strikes its robots to the rescue. Help design and prototype robots that save lives. In a disaster area, debris needs to be cleared, supplies brought in, and survivors carried out. Are you up to the challenge! Spend a week learning about mechanics and electronics as you engineer these life saving robots.

A World of Drones

Campers 9-14 years old

Explore the world from the sky! Drones are at the forefront of technological advancement. Campers will get an introduction into drone videography and photography. The ability to add thermal sensors on drones allows them to conduct search and rescue missions from the sky.

Robotics: Mining for Engineers

Campers 9-14 years old

Mining is a complex engineering task. Are you up to the challenge. In today’s world robots do most of the dangerous work of mining. Spend a week learning about robotics and coding. Learn about mechanics, physics and automation as you work on a team to extract raw materials from the ground.

A Bridge to Engineering

Campers 9-14 years old

Work in teams to design, prototype and evaluate a bridge (structure, roadway, and lighting) for a town. Playing the part of engineer, each camper will learn about bridge design, computer aided design, cost optimization using formulas in spreadsheets, physics and force analysis, material science, and how electrical circuits work. See why engineers get paid the big bucks!
