2019 Summer STEM CAMP

In 8 days of hands-on activities, students will be introduced to the engineering design process, the six types of simple machines and mechanical advantage. Students will design and build a Rube Goldberg machine that will test their knowledge, ingenuity and critical thinking skills. A Rube Goldberg machine is a chain reaction machine that accomplishes a simple task in the most complicated – and funniest – way possible! While students are having fun creating kooky solutions to simple, everyday tasks they also happen to be incorporating elements of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), with art and design thrown into the mix.
