Courses

Beginners explore the world of robotics using the LEGO EV3 kits. Campers will work with a partner to build robots with motors and sensors, then program these robots to perform tasks and respond to their environment. Learn about basic programming, problem solving, and teamwork. No prior LEGO Robotics experience is necessary.

The theme of this year's advanced camp is "RoboGames." Learn to build and program robots using the LEGO EV3 robotics kits. Campers will work with a partner to design robots with motors and sensors, then use those robots to compete in various "Olympic Events". Campers should have completed LEGO Robotics I or have comparable LEGO Robotics experience to enroll.

Campers will work in teams to modify four off-the-shelf toy ride-on cars for four local children with mobility challenges. They will receive hands-on training on designing, wiring, soldering, basic construction skills, and following a budget.
Come meet real-life women engineers and do fun hands-on activities as they teach you about the different disciplines of engineering. Campers will get a tour to see a woman engineer at work and become familiar with a variety of possible engineering majors.
This camp will help understand robotics design, problem-solving, project management, team-building, and presentation skills. Campers will spend time on working with the VEX robotic system. This camp will provide good preparation for campers interested in transitioning from LEGO Robotics to Kansas BEST Robotics teams.
Do you love eating cupcakes? Do you like to decorate them using a variety of candy options? Then come and join us as we learn how to reverse engineer your cupcake design using Autodesk Inventor! Campers will create their cupcakes, sketch and take measurements in their notebook and then create a replica using Autodesk Inventor.
Students from 10th through 12th grades will get hands on experience on cutting edge biomedical engineering devices to acquire, process and record human physiological signals. This year's BME summer camp focuses on brain-machine interface, prosthetics and robotics technology used in biomedical engineering. Each session begins with presentation slides to understand concepts behind biomedical principles and then followed by hands on experiments. campers will learn how to build up a setup to control five fingered robotic hand using their muscle signals, how to perform neuroscience experiments using electroencephalography (EEG) technique and how to analyze and record biopotential signals. Campers will demonstrate their project and skills learned from this camp to friends and family at the end.
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.
Learn basic concepts of engineering and computer-assisted design by building your own toy car using CATIA software. Each student will have a design 3D printed for assembling on the wheel base. The final day of camp is Race day allowing campers to see how their designs stack up against the competition.

Campers will learn and work hands-on with electrical components such as resistors, capacitors, inductors, voltage source and diodes.Campers will work on the NI Elvis prototyping board to build simple electrical circuit like resistors in series and parallel combinations, and measure the voltage across each element and current passing through each element, and students are also build simulation diagram on multi-sim software.
Campers will participate in a cyber exercise designed to expose them to cyber defense and offense in a safe and fun environment. They will learn to work as a team, and use cyber skills to accomplish exercise objectives.Copy and paste this link into your browser to apply for a Cybersecurity Boot Camp scholarship: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSf-eKQseSiKcEVVaCF5PpeJpQBPkbM5newBC8ligqMtyW3FVA/viewform
In this camp students are going to write programs by using Arduino software (IDE) to activate the electrical circuit. Students will design electrical circuits by using resistors, sensors, diodes, LEDs on bread board by using UNO R3 controller board. This camps is great for the students who are interested in coding and designing the circuits.
Course Objectives:

Upon completion of the badge students will be able to:

  • Plan, cut prepreg, layup and bag simple laminate and sandwich parts

  • Repair simple composite parts using prepreg and wet repair techniques

  • Interpret the results of commonly used Non-destructive inspection techniques

  • Conduct the adhesive bonding of composite parts and appreciate the importance of key processing steps on the quality of the bonding.


Credit Hours

Success in this 0.5 credit hour course is based on the expectation that students will spend, for each unit of credit, a minimum of 7.5 hours over the length of the course in direct instruction as provided by the instructor and an additional 15 hours outside of class reading, reflecting, and evaluating the topics for a total of 22.5 hours.

This course covers the essential topics pertaining to composites engineering and the certification process.
