3D Printing Camp
June 19 @ 8:30 am – June 23 @ 3:00 pm | $250.00
Grades 5-9
3D modeling & 3D printing are some of the fastest growing STEM fields. Campers will learn how to use basic hardware and software and about how industrial design and manufacturing using these technologies are at the forefront of an emerging trend toward fast prototyping. Beginner kids and teens will build skills at their own pace throughout the week. Come experience the latest and greatest 3D modeling and printing camp in the Pittsburgh region.

Zoology Camp
June 26 @ 8:30 am – June 30 @ 3:00 pm | $250.00
Grades 5-9
Campers explore hands-on activities to learn about the difference between mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and arthropods (bugs!) and how to classify them based on morphology, symmetry and more. We will provide a visual and memorable learning experience through observation, dissection and more. Campers learn these concepts through activities, crafts, and create their own personal Zoology notebook.

Seaperch Camp
July 10 @ 8:30 am – July 14 @ 3:00 pm | $450.00
Grades 5-9
Campers will design and build their own Seaperch ROV (Remote Operated Vehicle) and then participate in battle bot and obstacle course challenges. SeaPerch is an innovative underwater robotics program that equips students with the resources they need to build an underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) in an in-school or out-of-school setting. Students build the ROV from a kit comprised of low-cost, easily accessible parts, following a curriculum that teaches basic engineering and science concepts with a marine engineering theme. The SeaPerch Program provides campers with the opportunity to learn about robotics, engineering, science, and mathematics (STEM) while building an underwater ROV as part of a science and engineering technology curriculum. Throughout the project, campers will learn engineering concepts, problem-solving, teamwork, and technical applications.

Microbiology Camp
July 17 @ 8:30 am – July 21 @ 3:00 pm | $250.00
Grades 7-12
Campers will spend the week exploring microbiological techniques in the lab. They will learn about bacteria and all the cool things they can do. Students will learn aseptic techniques, how to make LB agar plates, grow bacteria, and various bacterial staining methods. Campers will explore the ways in which we can prevent bacterial growth by using antibiotics and common food spices. They will then learn how microorganisms are used to degrade oil slicks, make a bacterial fuel cell, and use fluorescent bacteria to draw glowing images.
