Ulster BOCES is holding two Nuts, Bolts, & Thingamajig camps for area students entering Grades 7, 8, or 9. Each session will provide students who enjoy math and science with the opportunity to spend four days in the Ulster BOCES’ state-of-the-art Robotics and Advanced Manufacturing Lab working on engaging hands-on, project-based experiences.
The Advanced Manufacturing Camp, which runs July 8-11, will guide students in the design process and building of a C02-powered race car using CAD software. The campers will then watch as the lab’s equipment shapes their vehicle into its final form. Once finished, the car will hit the “pavement” on a C02 race car track. This fun, educational experience will provide the campers with skills including critical thinking, conceptual design, analysis, programming, and brainstorming solutions.
Students interested in learning about designing, building, and coding robots to carry out tasks and master various challenges can attend the Robotics Camp from August 5-8. The young engineers will hone their programming, coding literacy, design thinking, and collaboration competencies.
Both camps are from 8:30 AM to 2 PM and students must provide their own transportation. The deadline for registration is June 14 and enrollment is limited. The cost is $99.99 per participant, per camp. Register here and return your completed application with a check or money order to Ulster BOCES NBT, PO BOX 601, Port Ewen, NY 12466.
