Engineering Camp – Space Exploration

We're sorry, but all tickets sales have ended because the event is expired.
  • Engineering Camp
    July 22, 2019 - July 26, 2019
    9:00 am - 12:00 pm

This camp brings together curious thinkers who love to tinker, design, build, take-apart, launch, and fly, and zoom.  We’ll use NASA as our inspiration to look at how we can design and engineer our own gadgets and gizmos to explore new and unknown frontiers.  Just a few of the awesome projects engineers will design, build and/or operate during this camp include:

  • Table-top hovercrafts
  • Full-size hovercraft propelled by leaf blowers that will enable kid engineers to literally float on air
  • Compressed-air rocket launchers
  • Rubber-band propelled vehicles
  • Drones
  • Computer-coded rover robots
  • So many more!

July 22nd-26th, 9am – 12pm daily will be open to campers in two age groups, ages 6-9 and 10+.  We will have multiple teachers, so campers will spend portions of the camp with others in their age group.

(The afternoon camp offered this same week, Robotics Camp, will be from 1pm-4pm.  Campers who sign up for both are invited to bring a sack lunch and will have a free bonus hour included from 12pm-1pm that includes Open Tinker Lab after lunch!  Click here for more information about that camp.)

*Age ranges are recommended ages.  if you have any questions, please reach out to Anna ( and she’d be happy to help you determine if it makes sense for children outside that range.

Before participating in the first day of camp, students must return the signed Family Information Form, which will be emailed prior to the week of camp.

If this class sounds perfect for your child but this day or time of day doesn’t work for you, please contact us at in case another section is added this summer!

Contact us at if you are interested in an early drop-off at 8am or late pick-up at 5pm option.  If there is interest from multiple families, we’ll contact all participants to offer the option for an additional fee.

100% Satisfaction Guaranteed – If after the first day of camp, you decide this is not a great fit for your child, please contact Anna by phone or in person to discuss either a full refund or registration in another Collaboratory camp instead.  Collaboratory reserves the right to cancel (with 100% refund) this session if enrollment is less than 6 kids.  We believe strongly that one of the most important elements to learning at the Collaboratory is the collaboration and teamwork with other students.  We want to ensure there are enough students to create a powerful team and to grow our thinking power!
