Campers will not only learn how to make and design these vehicles but also learn the science behind how they work. Join us for a week of STEM fun and test your design in our end-of-week competition.
Dates: June 24 - 28 Time: 12:30 - 3:30 p.m. Ages: Rising Grades 3 - 6 Director: Mr. Jack Wren, firstname.lastname@example.org Tuition: $185
StemQuest unplugs campers from the computer screen in this narrative-based program. We have intentionally extracted the wide-array of exhilarating challenges and mysteries from gaming and esports and generated a live adventure. Campers will use rovers, bots, drones, and other autonomous creative technology to jump over obstacles, push down walls, lift up boulders, toss energy balls, and navigate through mazes. Teams of campers work together indoors, outdoors and in open-spaced “arenas” throughout the week, utilizing life skills such as design and systems thinking, collaborative problem solving, curiosity, mindfulness, and imagination to outwit, out-build, and out-smart one another as well as the program instructor, The Wizard. Use your resources wisely to defend the kingdom and lead your clan to victory!
Campers in grades 3 - 5 will work in engineering teams to plan, design, and test their original creations. They will problem-solve to build a project that serves as a solution to an exciting STEM challenge. Students will compete against children from across the USA! Entries made via video will be judged at the local level and at the end of the summer by a team of judges including Sylvan, the K’NEX CEO, K’NEX STEM Engineers, and other STEM community ambassadors. Grand prizes awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners.

Calling all Master Builders! Sylvan is looking for builders eager to learn about simple machines. In this camp, they will learn about gears, pulleys, levers, and wheel & axels. Builders will discover the amazing would of engineering using their imagination to build theme-based creations using LEGOs®. Along the way, they’ll solve problems like real engineers and learn cool new STEM skills!
Ready to build robots? Integrating engineering, technology, computer science, and math, Sylvan Robotics Camp gives students the skills to begin to understand information-based technology for the future. Campers will work with a buddy to build and program LEGO® robots. They will use simple machines such as levers, pulleys and wheels and axles to create movement in their bots. They will learn how to program their robots to move, make sounds, and respond to sensors! Students will build intricate designs like a ferris wheel, a moon rover, and even a few crazy zoo animals! Campers develop critical thinking skill and problem-solving strategies and learn how to collaborate to express their creativity.
Come explore your artistic side with the power of an airbrush at your fingertips! Working with an airbrush is a wonderfully exciting and creative experience.
