When is it?

24 June 2019 to 28 June 2019

Who Can Attend?

Students entering grades 4-5

What's Covered?

Come help us design the Car of the Future! Together, we’ll discover the physics concepts that we’ll need for the Car of the Future, learn how to put an idea that’s in your head into a Computer-Aided Design (CAD) program, test your design ideas, and then use a 3D printer to turn your design into an actual object you can hold in your hand! We’ll also look at how scientists, engineers and even artists combine physics concepts with design and additive manufacturing (e.g., 3D printing) techniques to design and build the future! If you have lots of ideas for cool objects and want to learn how to make them a reality – this is the camp for you!
