Looking for something to do this summer? Dunwoody College of Technology is delighted to offer the following camp opportunities for 2017:
STEM Camp sponsored by Boston Scientific: June 19-22, 2017
Dunwoody College of Technology STEM Camp is for high school students entering grades 10-12 in fall 2017.
During STEM Camp, you’ll:
- Tour Boston Scientific on the first day (transportation provided) and attend a career panel of BSC employees in STEM jobs.
- Design, build, and program a Smart Flashlight using SolidWorks CAD software, Stratasys 3D printers, CNC machining, and Arduino code.
- Use engineering design processes in a team to compete with other teams for engineering dominance while applying physical sciences concepts to real-world scenarios.
- Explore how building designs – both electronically and physically – use STEM to help shape the backdrops of our lives. You’ll explore architecture and civil engineering by making a physical model during a tower design activity and also learn how the sun shapes cities by using SketchUp Make software to digitally study Downtown Minneapolis.
Discover Interior Design Camp: June 19-22, 2017
The Interior Design Camp is for high school students entering grades 10-12 in fall 2017.
Students are taught by professional designers from the design community and those who teach in our undergraduate program. Participants will study color, materials, architectural drawing, and digital media as well as visit design firms and beautiful spaces around the Twin Cities.
Arts-n-Crafts, Robots & Computing Camp: July 17-21, 2017
The Arts-n-Crafts, Robots & Computing Camp is for students entering grades 6-8 in fall 2017.
Hosted by Dunwoody’s Computer Technology department, campers will learn the basics of computing through arts and crafts projects. Build and program robots with LEGO Mindstorms ®, learn about Artbotics, and program with Scratch and other tools. Dunwoody faculty and staff will lead the activities.
Rosie’s Girls: July 25, 2017
In partnership with Dunwoody College of Technology, Girls Scouts River Valleys is for girls entering grades 6-8 in fall 2017.
Rosie’s Girls is a unique educational experience inspired by Rosie the Riveter designed to build strong, confident girls through hands-on learning.
At this day-long workshop, you will practice problem-solving, experiment with technology, develop leadership and communication skills, and take positive risks by trying new things. Led by female Dunwoody instructors, you’ll explore a range of educational and career options in a girl-centered environment and work with a variety of materials—including wood and metal—as well as learn about sustainable design and renewable energy. You will also help design and give voice to future Rosie’s Girls programming.
