Safari Olympics

Ready, Get Set, Go!

The summer camp kicks off with an energy-filled week dedicated to sports. The venue will be the neighborhood park, where students will take part in heats (trials) of races like sprints, hurdles, lemon-on-the-spoon, 3-legged race, and other individual and team-relay races.

They will watch some popular moments in Olympic history and learn to appreciate how participation is more important than winning.

=

Robotics Lab

Build the future today!

Students will learn both mechanical design and software programming, and will marry the two to create a functional robot. They will start off by creating a simple robot with pieces from the Lego Mindstorms EV3 set. Then, they will program their robot on the Lego Mindstorms software using drag-and-drop sensor, movement, and logic blocks. They will download these programs onto the robot and after much debugging will watch their creations accomplish their given tasks. The students will learn the importance of persistence, collaboration, and cooperation.

Nature Camp

Calling all naturalists!

It’s becoming increasingly important for us to learn to live in harmony with our environment and our natural surroundings. This week, campers will develop a love for the outdoors and an understanding of our local flora and fauna. They will be exposed to many enjoyable outdoor activities like setting up tents, mapmaking and map-reading, hiking, scavenger hunts, and singing camping songs. Through these fun activities, they will engage in topics like reducing our footprint on nature, recycling, wilderness survival, and healthy & sustainable living.

=

Appathon

Logic rules!

Scratch is a graphical programming language that makes it easy to create apps—interactive stories, games, and animations—and share their creations with the world. Students will start with learning simple programming concepts through the process of creating sprites. They will progressively acquire more advanced skills like building animations and will eventually graduate to creating a complete app like Ping Pong and Mini Mario in Scratch. Once done with development, they will publish their app and will share it with the Scratch community.

=

Leaders League

Born to lead!

This theme is all about leadership, entrepreneurship, and teamwork. The children will learn about important facets of leadership and how to inculcate leadership qualities in themselves. Children will be visiting three major business campuses (e.g. Google, Facebook, Intel, Tesla) to understand how these companies work. They will learn how young entrepreneurs started and developed these companies into what they are today. They will take a tour of the campus and will talk to an employee of the company. The children will get to listen to, interact with, and be inspired by a proven leader. Finally, the children will be asked to reflect on their learning and to share their experiences through a group presentation.

The World of 3D

Three times the fun!

Using TinkerCad software, students will learn how to create geometric shapes using tools such as group, resize, and reshape. Once they have mastered geometric shapes, they will learn how to combine geometric shapes to create 3D models. Once their masterpieces are complete, the students will 3D print their creations. The 3D designs can also be downloaded on Thingiverse or Minecraft.

=

Great Escapes

Escape from the clutches of captivity!

Relive some of the great escapes in history. Become an escape artist and break out of captivity with the help of your gray cells, and a little help from your mates.
