Camp is full; waitlist available.
Dates: June 20 - 24, 2023
Eligibility: Rising 9th - 12th graders
Capacity: Space is limited to 30 students.
Registration Fee: $750 which includes housing in residence halls, meals, and all course materials.
Space is Limited: Early registration is recommended. Campers will be registered on a first-come, first-served basis, based upon date of registration and when payment is received. Waiting lists will be maintained and filled in the order that they were received should cancellations occur.
All camps will have a $50 registration fee (non-refundable, but applied to camp fee). Persons wishing to cancel their registration must do so two weeks (14 full days) prior to the first day of their chosen program. No refunds will be made after this date.
The camp will start with design concepts, design choices, and the mechanical design process. Then campers will use their skills to make a virtual prototype in CAD software. The design will then be formalized for manufacturing. Campers will use the full mechanical workshop with a CNC machining center and tools to bring the product prototype to life. Campers will learn about smart product design and electrical layout and program Arduino for their products. Then the final prototype integration will take place. The camp will conclude with campers demonstrating their design in a shark tank-like setting to sell their prototype.
