UW-S announces Summer 2013 Special Camps
The University of Wisconsin-Sheboygan’s summer youth program will offer a variety of fun and educational opportunities for children of all ages this summer through its popular College for Kids program and other related enrichment camps.
Join us for this fun but intense robotics program. Register your student today for our NEW Amazing Robotics Challenge class. Students will build a mobile robot using interchangeable parts, wirelessly controlled by a computer. Flashing lights, moving motors, wheels, levers and arms at their command. Sensors help the robot find its way. Innovation and creativity are required. Styling and originality are rewarded. We will use the popular and easy to master Scratch programming language, plus students will find out what an Ardunio is.
Students will learn about electronics, physics, computer programming-and maybe even see how what they learn in math class helps them build a robot. During the Thursday session, family is welcome to come and cheer on the robots during our competition!
Robotics Camp will be held June 17-19 and August 5-8 from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. A $109 fee is required for the course.
What do you know about polymers, forensic science, light, shadows and colors, water, magnesium and electricity, and motion? Chances are after this fantastic science camp your student will know more than you!
Don’t let your student miss out on this opportunity, register your student for our Elementastic Science Camp for youth entering grades 1-8! Designed for highly motivated children interested in discovering a different part of the world of science, students will take part in a broad range of safe, hands-on experiments.
Each day they will explore one science topic in depth that has been carefully chosen to add to and intensify the science curriculum of area school districts. Materials and special take home projects are included.
Elementastic Science Camp will be held July 15-19 from 10 a.m.-noon. A $90 fee is required for the course. In addition, a unique science show will be performed by participating students for friends and family on Friday at 11 a.m.
