Model Engineering Camp:

Innovation Force and Bot 

Ann-E

Students will improve in Problem Solving, Coding, and Environmental Science by creating a superhero and gadgets to collect toxic sludge (Slime).

Model Engineering Camp:

First Lego League 

Explorer

First Lego League Explorer will introduce students to creating and coding their designs to solve problems.

Model Engineering Camp:

Great Adventures

Students find ways of helping the main characters and practice recounting an experience using relevant details. This will help to develop their collaborative conversation skills.

Rising  Grades K-6

EKU Camp Invention

July 11 - 15

9:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.

This year’s all-new program is designed to inspire confidence and persistence as campers bring their biggest ideas to life. Your student will engage in fun, collaborative, creative-problem solving activities for the best summer ever!

Rising  Grades 1-4 Word Detective Reading Camp

July 11-15

9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.

Students will learn how to be "word detectives" and use clues to figure out a word's meaning and build new words with fun interactive word study activities (spelling patterns, prefixes, suffixes, and more)! Services provided by EKU graduate students, supervised by nationally certified and Kentucky state-licensed speech-language pathologists. $50 To register, call 859-622-4444 or email eku.slhc@eku.edu

Rising  Grades 2-3

Model Engineering Camp:

Duck Chuck Module

June 27 - July 1

8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.

In this global adventure, students will design, build, and test devices to launch rubber ducks. First, they collect and budget “quack coins” to buy materials for creating their device. Then they launch their ducks

around the world in an exciting effort to visit famous landmarks while putting the physics concepts of trajectory and velocity to the test.

Model Engineering Camp:

Open Mic Module

In this Open Mic module, students voice their ideas as their imaginations are amplified through invention and entrepreneurship. First, they reverse engineer a wireless microphone, and then they follow the Design Process to develop and pitch their own amazing inventions.

Model Engineering Camp:

Crazy Carnival Games

Crazy Carnival Games will develop your students’ understanding of energy, energy transfer, and collision. They’ll explore ways of using observation skills as they anticipate the outcomes of changes in energy during a collision, describe the relationship between energy and speed, and predict how energy moves from place to place. 

Model Engineering Camp:

Happy Traveler

Happy Traveler will develop your students’ understanding of computer science as they create sequences and loops, decompose problems, and improve programs to meet specific needs. They’ll investigate ways of accurately describing the decisions they’ve made when creating a program, carry out fair tests, and develop their ability to generate and debug multiple solutions. 

Rising  Grades 4-5

Model Engineering Camp:

Road Rally Module

June 27 - July 1

8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.

Students will enter a Vehicle Design Lab where they will apply nature-based discoveries to create vehicles that can travel across the land and have morphing prototype elements to how they might adapt to move through the air and even underwater. Students are exploring energy, fuel, and movement. They will modify their designs to take on challenges in an exciting Super Road Rally.

Model Engineering Camp:

Flight Lab

Students will take apart and customize a high-tech flight simulation robot to learn about the principles of flight, reverse engineering, and invention.

Model Engineering Camp:

Prime Kickstart a Business

In Kickstart a Business, students will develop effective problem-solving skills by decomposing problems into smaller parts. They’ll use pseudocode as a tool for sequencing actions, use existing code with attributions in order to recognize patterns, systematically identify and fix bugs, and use conditions and compound conditions to program encoded devices.

Model Engineering Camp:

Life Hacks

In Life Hacks, students will create clearly named variables and lists representing different data types, and perform basic math operations on their values. They’ll learn how to make cloud data useful and reliable, improve their programs to refine a solution, and design projects that combine hardware and software components to collect and exchange data.
