Drone Academy
Assemble a Drone of your own. After we assemble and name your drone, learn how to fly it using the Four Forces of Flight. Go to Flight School with plenty of flight time to practice the basics of operating a Drone safely. As we get more advanced, we’ll navigate an Aerial Obstacle Course. While on the ground, we explore how the IR Control works and signals to the Drone. Must be entering the 3rd grade to participate in this camp.

Catapults and Backyard Ballista
Throw things… really, really, really far with catapults, trebuchets, and cannons. You’ll build a tabletop wooden trebuchet to start an exploration of Newton’s Laws of Motion. We’ll experiment with trajectory and velocity with our Giant Human Powered Catapult. Enter the modern age and design your own Compressed Air Rocket. If that’s not over the top enough, the Potato cannon will be there to send Spuds with a Thud. Catapults and Backyard Ballista throw things over the top… literally.
