Let imaginations run wild as students discover the exciting applications of mechanical engineering! Campers will investigate levers, pulleys and other simple machines as they construct their own creations building upon existing knowledge each day of camp. The camp will culminate with the design and construction of a Rube Goldberg-style chain-reaction machine!
 
This camp is designed to actively engage participants in the learning process.  Throughout the camp, students will build problem solving skills, learn math and science (while having fun), explore engineering as a career option and discover how things work.
