Full STEAM Ahead: Building an Idea into an Invention

Camp Description

Monday – Today’s focus will center on the “S”, Science, and campers begin the invention project by introducing the Engineering Design Process and give campers time to research possible ideas for solving real-world problems.

Tuesday -. Campers will focus on the T (Technology) to expand their idea for their invention. We will also explore coding and possible ways to incorporate coding into their designs.

Wednesday - Today will focus on building and designing the inventions through the letter E (Engineering). Students will continue to refer to the Engineering Design Process as they create their inventions and apply the engineering principles, critical thinking, and creativity during their build.

Thursday - The focus of today will be the A (Art); campers find ways to incorporate Art through creative mediums and campers will brand and create logos for their project.

Friday – The final day to complete our designs. We will incorporate the M (Math) by figuring a cost for our new product/invention and develop a marketing plan.
Mark your calendar now—prior to the camp end time, walk through our product design showcase to marvel at our wonderful creations.

Activities described are general topics and are subject to change at the instructor’s discretion.
