Camp Descriptions



Grades 1-2   
Space Adventures: 
Campers will investigate basic physics through play with LEGO® Simple Machines and toys that have been to space.  What happens to spinning tops, pinwheels and catapults in microgravity?  Young astronauts in training will build simple toys and explore gears, pulleys, and wheels and axles while engaging their creative and critical thinking skills.

Robonauts is the half day version of our Space Adventures Camp.

 
   
Grades 3-5  
Rocketeers:
Rockets, rockets, and more rockets!  Investigate the principles of flight and rocketry that have made mankind’s exploration of space possible.  You will build and launch several different kinds of rockets and have an out-of-this-world time!   
Bring a lunch and stay all day by registering for this camp and Jr. Robotics.

Jr. Robotics:

Working in teams, campers will use LEGO® WeDo sets to build and program a variety of robots to carry out creative tasks and face tough challenges. Will your Lego adventure-movie hero survive her trials?  Can you make a soccer player capable of saving a goal?  Will your alligator growl on command...or will he sing instead?

Jr. Robotics PLUS extends our 1/2 day Jr. Robotics Camp to include additional engineering activities focusing on design, programming, and circuitry. 
 
   
Grades 6-8  
 LEGO® Robotics:
Are you interested in the basics of programming, do you like building with LEGOs®?  You will use LEGO® Mindstorms to create and design various robots.  Working on a team, you will program the robots to complete challenges such as cleaning up trash, navigating a maze, and even sumo-wrestling.

Advanced LEGO® Robotics: 
Extend your experience with LEGO® Mindstorms robots.  Working on a team, you will create your own unique robot designs and programming solutions to build a robot capable of carrying out scientific exploration. Prior experience programming Mindstorms a must!
 
   
Grades 9-12  
 Space Engineering Odyssey:
Apply physics, biology, chemistry and computer modeling to make informed decisions while you work to save the International Space Station crew during a simulated space mission crisis. COLLEGE CREDIT OPTIONAL: 2 UCCS elective physics credits; additional coursework and fee required.
