Architecture, Engineering, and Design (Drafting) - June 10 - 13 at Marvin Ridge HS
Camp Description: The area of Architecture & Engineering Design is growing at a staggering pace today. In this camp, students will have the opportunity to investigate designing a model using various software applications that may include AutoCAD Inventor, TinkerCAD, 123D Catch, 123D Design, 123D Make, Meshmixer, 123DS Scuplt +, Tinkerplay and Sketch-up. Then they can see the model become a reality through 3-D printing. Students will also take a brief look at the history of design communication, the design process, conceptual sketching, interpolation, manufacturing processes, emerging technologies, career opportunities, software options, 3D laser scanning and modeling.
Aviation - June 24 - 27 at Sun Valley HS
Camp Description: Students will learn principles through hands-on projects that will expand their knowledge. This project-based-learning camp engages students who are curious about aerospace. In the camp, students will learn how to use an engineering design process to create prototypes and solve real-world problems. Students will work collaboratively in teams, and individually, to design systems, solve problems, think critically, be creative and communicate with each other. Students can participate in experiences designing, building and testing a pilot seat frame, kite, projectile and launcher, model rocket, airplane wing and non-powered glider. As they develop some of these prototypes, they will learn the underlying principles of aerospace, science, mathematics, and literacy. <b><u>Students will also have the opportunity to fly a plane using our in-house flight simulators!
