Summer Camp Descriptions

Little Scientists 2019

 

NEW! Full day camp. A fantastic early introduction to discovering the wonders of the world through science! Hands-on activities and experiments designed just for early learners to explore nature, chemistry, building and more! Get kindergarten-ready with counting, cutting, sorting and printing while meeting new friends. Must be going into kindergarten in the Fall of 2019.


 

Science Apprentice 2019

Children are natural scientists. Each new day will be filled with new and exciting experiments in science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM). From chemistry to food science and insect behavior to designing and testing flying objects, coding, and making music. Learn by mixing things up & making things move!


 

Robo-Explorers 2019

This beginners robotics camp will allow campers to explore and play with Lego Mindstorms EV3 robotics kits. The kits include all the pieces required to build robots, as well as, the software needed to program them. Campers will be using some simple coding skills to program the robots, but those will be learned during the camp. 


 

creative coders 2019

 

The beginner’s coding camp will allow campers to explore and play with some free and powerful coding learning tools. The skills learned in this camp are from a curated mix of fundamental computer skills and hard coding skills using unplugged activities and block-based coding. 


Our creative challenges set the stage for exciting, artistic designs! These imaginative, one-of-a-kind contraptions help to gain the skills to know which shapes make the strongest things and how to make balance, tension and gravity work for you. Try out ideas using real tools and materials and leave with unique projects and inventions to take home to show friends and family. Discover how much fun thinking with your hands can be as science springs to life before your eyes!


spaced out 2019

Ignite your curiosity of what’s above and beyond Earth’s atmosphere. Campers will spend the week discovering and exploring celestial structures in outer space and the technology developed to make it possible. 


 

robo 2.0

 

This advanced robotics camp will allow campers to explore advanced block-based coding in the EV3 software. It is highly recommended that campers sign up for this camp if they have already done the beginners coding camp – Creative Coders or beginner’s robotics camp – Robo-Explorers. The camper should have spent at least 10-20 hours on scratch. Campers will conceive, design, build, program, test, and re-iterate on their robots. They will be using some simple and advanced coding skills to program the robots with some self-directed objectives. Science East will provide a framework, some inspiration, technical help and other supports, but the camper should be self-interested in robotics and motivated to work towards non-prescribed goals.


 

DigiCreations

DigiCreations camp will allow campers to explore and play with some free and powerful digital learning tools. This is a creativity-based camp that employs modern digital resources to create media suitable for sharing all infused with some artistry. In addition to a range of STEAM tools and exploration, campers will engage with the concept of digital literacy (appropriate online safety and behavior).  All software tools that we use are free, open-source tools parents can access at home with a computer with Microsoft Windows installed. If you do not have an internet connection, Science East can provide the installation files during the week if requested. 


 

code 2 play

This is an advanced coding camp that will allow campers to explore advanced block-based coding in scratch as well as basic text-based coding. It is highly recommended that campers sign up for this camp if they have already done the beginners coding camp – Creative Coders. The camper should have spent at least 10-20 hours of independent work on scratch toward the completion of a project. Basic and intermediate scratch functions will NOT be covered in this camp, as those are expected to be learned. The skills learned include advanced coding skills and project management. We will also be exploring text-based coding in more detail and supporting kids on transitioning into text-based coding.
