What: An engineering summer camp using Lego based technology
Who: student entering 4th to 7th grade
When: June 12-16 and July 17-21
Where: Mandeville High School
Cost: $250 (includes free t-shirt and lunch on Friday)

To summarize our camp, we create a “game” where students build robots about 8 inches by 8 inches in order to accomplish certain tasks based on the theme. We also allot time for other team-building and engineering activities.
Campers will participate in a competition at the end of each week. Parents are invited to watch at 2 on Friday to see their child’s hard work.

2016 Summer Camp:
2015 Summer Camp:
2015’s summer camp theme was… JURASSIC WORLD! Camp counselors dressed as if they were on a safari, and the “game” was based on corralling dinosaurs, running from the notorious Dino X, rescuing dinosaur eggs and bringing them back to base, and more. The theme was a hit and led to many activities based in teamwork and basic engineering principles, like making paper pterodactyls (paper airplanes) and testing them to see which one flew the farthest. A highlight of the experience for many kids was a water balloon fight (everyone LOVES drenching their own camp counselors). Overall, we’d say the camp was far from a tyrannosaurus wreck.
