2024 Summer Camps

questions? email info@packofparts.org

Engineering 1 and 2

Engineering 1: 6th - 7th Grade | Aug 5th - 9th

Engineering 2: 8th - 9th Grade | Aug 12th - 16th 

9AM - 12PM | $250

Dive into the world of engineering with our immersive 5-day summer camp! Designed for young innovators, this camp offers hands-on experience in creating a fan-powered car and a functional crane using DC motors, breadboards, MDF, and more. Participants will learn essential manufacturing skills, including the use of scroll saws, drills, and various hand tools. In addition, students will explore the fundamentals of electrical engineering by working with limit switches and other key components such as wires, resistors, LED lights, and breadboards to build simple, yet intriguing circuits. This camp is perfect for aspiring engineers eager to discover the exciting intersection of mechanics and electronics. Don’t miss this opportunity to foster creativity, problem-solving, and technical skills in a fun and supportive environment!

CAD and 3D Printing

6th - 8th Grade | Aug 5th - 8th 

9AM - 12PM | $200

Team 1294 is hosting a CAD and 3D printing summer camp! this 5 day camp from 9am - 12pm will cover the basics of CAD as well as introducing how to use 3D printers! Students will CAD and print a final project that they can take home.

Programming Camp

6th - 8th Grade | Aug 12th - 16th

9AM - 12PM | $250

This camp will last for a week. We will be teaching the kids the same skills we, team 1294, use to program our 125 pound robot. We will start with the basics such as teaching them a bit of the Java Programming Language, how to move a motor, etc. We will then lead up to advanced concepts such as autonomous robot programming and PID controllers. Students will employ this knowledge to program their robot to autonomously complete an obstacle course the fastest. The skills and concepts learned and practiced in this camp will equip students with a solid foundation in robotics programming and control systems, preparing them for future challenges in robotics competitions, STEM education, and potential careers in technology and engineering. This form is to sign up for the programming summer camp. No previous experience is required, these questions are simply asked to see what level the class as a whole currently is at. The student should be entering middle school for the 2024-2025 school year.

Womens Engineering and Leadership

6th - 9th Grade | Aug 19th - 23rd

9AM - 12PM | $250

This summer camp aims to combine technical skills and soft skills that would be helpful for girls and gender minorities in STEM. Kids will work to build an accelerator that uses a light sensor to power an electromagnet that accelerates a steel ball around a 3d printed track. At the end of the week, kids take part in a friendly competition where they can ally with others, putting up to four accelerators in a single track. They will be challenged to complete x laps in as close to y seconds as possible. While doing this, kids will gain an understanding of circuits, ohm's law, basic electrical components (resistors, diodes, electromagnets, MOSFETs, LEDs, light sensitive resistors), and learn how to read the basics of a schematic diagram. The challenge at the end will be a fun way to practice problem solving, iterating, and strategizing. Students will cooperate with others to combine accelerators and tweak their own to create the ideal track. Additionally, 30 mins to 1 hour a day will be dedicated to leadership and giving students tools to help navigate environments in which they might be a minority. Overall, this camp teaches basic electrical concepts and leadership skills.
