Let imaginations run wild as campers discover the exciting applications of mechanical engineering! Starting with step-by-step builds to introduce each of the simple machines, learners eventually advance their way to constructing creations of their own. They investigate levers, pulleys and inclined planes, and enhance critical thinking skills while building upon existing knowledge every day of camp. Participants learn the importance of engineering and how it influences today’s society while being amazed at the structures designed and created during Simple Machines Camp!
