Calling all future engineers! In this fun, hands-on camp, students will learn about basic rocketry concepts including Newton’s Laws of Motion and the Engineering Design Process. Campers will compete in a series of team-based design challenges including:

·         Designing and building a functional model Martian buggy

·         Designing and deploying a model satellite that can pass a 1 meter drop test

·         Engineering a prototype Crew Exploration Vehicle (CEV)

·         Build and launch simple rockets and more!

Students will learn about various careers and subfields of Engineering. The week will conclude with an Open House where family and friends are invited to campus to check out student designs. T-shirts and certificates will be provided.

Please note: this program is designed for students with limited exposure to engineering design.
