Aviation Day Camp
Robotics, Circuits and Aircraft Design
Entering Grades 5-7
Full Day Only
Program Dates 2022:
*4-Day session. No camp July 4.
Leap into the world of aerospace engineering, building aircraft, drones, robots, circuits and more in a high-tech adventure in design!
Start in the Hiller Aviation Museum Invention Lab, a unique maker space equipped with authentic tools of science. Learn to use computer aided design, 3D printers and more to solve a range of design challenges.
Put technology in motion using programmable robotics. Learn the basics of robotic design, construction and drag-and-drop coding, then construct a device able to complete a task.
Scale up the experience at the Museum’s Penguin airplane, a small airplane able to be assembled and disassembled by camp participants. Attach wings, stabilizers and control surfaces and rig all necessary control cables to gain exceptional insights into the function of different parts of an airplane and discover the engineering and mechanics required for each and every aircraft to take flight.
