Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) is a half day event primarily for girls in middle school. This fifth annual half-day event will include hands-on activities in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Attendees will get a chance to meet STEM role models and learn more about careers in those fields. Our ultimate goal is to motivate girls to consider STEM careers. Find out more about the National Expanding Your Horizons Organization at www.expandingyourhorizons.org. Before you can pay by credit card you must first register online at www.expandingyourhorizons.org/conferences/Wichita.
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.
Campers will learn the basics of aerospace engineering. Participants will perform group activities/experiments that highlight underlying concepts.
The camp is designed for high school students interested in science, mathematics, engineering and medical or health professions. Campers will be introduced to the field of biomedical engineering. Biomedical engineers design and develop machines and materials that can be used to improve human health and well-being. Campers will interact with college instructors and students, engaging in fun and exciting hands-on, team projects, working to address real-life health challenges.
This camp is by scholarship application only. 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.
Campers will learn about and work hands-on with electrical components such as resistors, capacitors, 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.
The same profession that designs assembly lines for airplanes and cars design how fast food it made, packages are delivered and store inventory maintained. This four-day camp will teach the basics of industrial engineering and lean process improvement techniques. Campers will have an actual project at a local organization and will use these tools to improve quality, reduce waste, and create maximum efficiency.
This camp will help teach robotics design, problem-solving, project management, team-building, and presentation skills. Campers will spend work with the VEX robotic system. This camp will provide good preparation for campers interested in transitioning from LEGO Robotics to Kansas BEST Robotics teams.
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 "Robot Driving School." 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 follow the "rules of the road" and obey all traffic laws. Campers should have completed LEGO Robotics I or have comparable LEGO Robotics experience to enroll.

Learn concepts of engineering and computer-assisted design by building your own toy car using software and 3D printing. This camp will meet half-days Monday through Thursday in the morning, and then a follow-up on July 28, 2017. (This is necessary to allow time for 3D printing the cars.)

Remember the game Mousetrap? Come build your own Rube Goldberg cause-and-effect machine using basic circuits and the principles of simple machines.
Scratch is a multimedia learning tool designed to help students learn computer programming fundamentals by creating stories, games, and animations. Scratch provides an engaging environment and workflow, so that students can explore their creativity while learning technical concepts. No computer programming experience necessary for this camp.
