2022 Aug 22 – 26 Summer Camp – 5 days – Ages 7-12 – Multidisciplinary Science and Engineering: Survival on the Red Planet & Electronic Game Design: Race Game
This week of camp is all about understanding the science, technology, and engineering that will make human habitation on Mars possible. Students will learn about the Artemis Mission and how it is paving the way toward the ultimate goal of sending human beings to the surface of Mars. Students will explore the topics that address a human being’s basic needs for survival on the Red Planet, such as water, oxygen, solar energy, and protection from UV radiation. Students will engage in fun and exciting, hands-on investigations, experiments, and building challenges. Students will work in teams to design and build a physical prototype of their own Mars base.
Ladies and gentlemen start your engines! On your mark, get set, GO! Kids are drawn to the excitement of a race. They hoot and holler in anticipation that the car they chose will cross the finish line first. We will use the Engineering Design Process to create a storyboard that will outline the rules of play and characters for our game based on the basic rules of racing. Then, we will use Clickteam Fusion 2.5® to bring our storyboard to life with programming. At the end of the program, everyone takes home a working Windows-compatible game.
Full day students must bring a nuts-free lunch & snack. (drinking water provided)
