Robotics and Junior Engineers


"A ship in port is safe, but that is not what ships are for. Sail out to sea and do new things."

Specially designed for students in grades 3-6 (at time of registration), this camp will really keep children busy!

A significant part of the week will focus on robotics activities that utilize a number of resources and coding opportunities. 

Participants are also introduced to a wide variety of engineering activities that help them learn about, and appreciate, the many disciplines of engineering.

This camp is a great way to inspire the future engineers in your family!
