Summer Programs

 

REGISTRATION NOW OPEN
on College of Charleston’s Market Place.

Students transform into engineers who use their knowledge of science and math, as well as their innate curiosity and creativity to design objects, systems, and process to solve real-world problems.

There will be..

  • Designing and building hands-on projects
  • Walking explorations of campus & surrounding areas through an engineering lens
  • Interactions with real professors, scientists, & engineers

Rising K thru 5th graders
10AM – 2PM (early drop-off at 9:30 am)

$150 per week
10-12 students per group
Led by certified teachers & assisted by CofC student teachers or high school intern

*Two Weeks Prior to Camp you will be e-mailed an information packet with details about drop-off, pick-up, medical information, insurance, etc.
*If you register and your plans change, a $100 refund will be issued until July 1st, 2017

2017 CAMP SESSIONS

JULY 10-14 A WORK IN PROGRESS: IMPROVING THE PLAY DOUGH PROCESS
Students learn to think like chemical engineers, while designing a better way to make play dough.

JULY 17-21 SOLID AS A ROCK: REPLICATING AN ARTIFACT
Students imagine themselves as archaeologists tasked by a museum to replicate a petroglyph. To succeed at this challenge, the must analyze the properties of rocks and human-made materials, like a materials engineer, and reflect on how processing affects these materials.

JULY 24-28 JUST PASSING THROUGH: DESIGNING MODEL MEMBRANES
Just like a bioengineer, students learn how to membranes function and apply their knowledge of the basic needs of living organisms to designing a frog habitat with a model membrane that delivers just the right amount of water.

JULY 31- AUGUST 4 NOW YOU’RE COOKING: DESIGNING SOLAR OVENS
Students learn about the concepts of thermal insulators and conductors, they then test different materials to find the fest insulators. just like in green engineering they consider the life cycle and environmental impacts of each insulator, then design and test their solar ovens and some solar cooking!

*All sessions held on the College of Charleston campus in the Education Center off Saint Philips
