Design Engineering SPY CAMP

June 24 @ 9:00 am - August 9 @ 3:30 pm PDT

Program Overview:

In this Creative Technologist Camp: kids will design, assemble and test their own spy gear to compete in awesome engineering challenges. Students will step into the shoes of spies in action by bridging elements of the physical and digital worlds. Build your own surveillance device, create secret messages with a private code breaker, and step into the shoes of a Secret Spy!

Design Engineering: Spy Camp:

Are you ready for this year’s SPY camp? The Creative Technologist Design Engineering camp theme will be action packed and full of activities to learn about: 3D modeling, electronics, Costume Design and more! This is not your typical STEM summer camp – because it’s MORE! We combine the different elements of each tool into one week, so students are able to explore the innovation of working cross collaboratively with these tools. Our programs combine the inventiveness of design with the efficiency of engineering. Students can explore various topics in design with a focus on engineering elements, which exposes them to varying topics such as material sciences, prototyping, sustainability, and visual and accessory design.

Material Fee due on the first day of class check or cash

Material Fee Package 1: Doesn’t include micro-controller for class – $40

Material Fee Package 2: Includes Microcontroller to take home – $60
