Instructors will provide hands-on learning opportunities and promote teamwork and collaboration to problem solve. 

 

"Windmills and Gases and Coal: Oh My!" - - June 10 through June 14

The face of energy is an ever-changing one. As windmill farms change our skylines and gas production remains one of the top areas of trade, new energy generation is consistently at the forefront of numerous scientific studies. Expand your knowledge and explore the science of energy at this interactive and hands-on learning camp. Field exploration includes visiting sites of fossil fuel production, a site for renewable energy resources, and a Kansas wind farm. 

 

"The Art of the Matter" - - June 10 through June 14

Calling all artists and nanoscientists! This camp is for you. Campers will be given the opportunity to develop original art to bring alive the atoms, molecules, and nanoscale structures that make up all matter. With a thorough understanding of molecular symmetry, quantum physics and nanotechnology will quickly become just a few of the fun and exciting topics you dare to explore before the camp ends. 

 

"Adventures in a Virtual World" - - June 17 through June 21

Take a step outside of the human world and fall into the vast and exciting realm of virtual realityUntil recently, virtual realities have been somewhat of a fantasy for most. However, decades of experimentation in this area has led to the creation of some of the world’s most innovative technologies. Using mobile devices, students will trek through many different types of realities and even have the opportunity to create their own augmented reality app for a mobile device. 

 

"Gamers Unite!" - - June 24 through June 28

Have you always wanted to create your own video game? Learn how to turn your love for gaming into a rewarding career by learning the tricks and trades of the game development world.
