This camp is conducted by the College of Engineering. Campers will work as part of a team to explore prosthetics. Students will brainstorm,sketch and create a prototype of a missing limb for a patient that has suffered a debilitating loss of a limb. Campers will take this activity a step further and design their prototype using Autodesk Inventor in order to print their prototype on a 3D printer. 

*Due to time constraints, not all prototypes may be printed.

This camp is conducted by the College of Engineering. Many expert coders begin by teaching themselves. In this mini camp, campers will create Scratch accounts, learn the basics of Scratch coding -- working through the same curriculum we bring to elementary schools during the school year  -- and leave being able to continue building their skills on their own.  Each camper will receive a set of Scratch coding cards ($25 value) to take home.
