Engineering Camp: Out of This World – Grades 1-4

  • July 16, 2018 - July 18, 2018
    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 16-18, 9am – 12pm  will be open to campers entering GRADES 1 THROUGH 4*  Campers will be grouped into flexible groups by age, each taught by a certified classroom teacher.

***(The afternoon camp offered this same week, Robotics Camp, will be from 1-4.  Campers who sign up for both are invited to bring a sack lunch and will have a free bonus hour included from 12-1 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 date 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!
