For all those aspiring engineers out there, come to our Young Engineers’ Retreat weekend hosted by Camp Sankanac.
With this installment of Engineering Camp, we will be focusing on Robotics and Programming!
Classes will be conducted by the Weatherly Institute for Robotics and Engineering, (W.I.R.E.) and has been taught on college campuses, in high schools and private schools since 2004. Their website, STEMDreams.com covers more of what they do, stop by and visit.
The Classes at Camp Sankanac are designed for young people 12 to 16 years of age and cover a wide range of engineering disciplines:
- Aerospace (in Atmosphere and Space)
- Alternative Energy Engineering
- Robotics & Programming
- Structural Engineering (Bridges, Towers and Cranes)
About the Speakers –
Stephen and his wife, Deb team up to share their knowledge and experience in engineering to young people who have an interest in that field. They have a passion for young people to use their God-given talents and minds to learn more about how God made man to design things.
WHAT TO BRING:
> Pillow/Sleeping Bag (Campers will stay in our winterized Cliffside cabins…they are toasty warm and have bathrooms)
> Weather Appropriate Clothing: We can get anything from balmy sunshine to snow…please pack according to weather conditions. We’ll most likely be enjoying the outdoors regardless! Boots, jacket/coat/hat/gloves, snow gear/sled if snow is forecasted, rain coat/boots if rain is forecasted etc. Extra clothes are recommended in case we get messy.
> Shoes: We recommend packing solid sneakers or hiking boots (and an extra pair is a great idea!). If rain is forecasted, throw in a pair of rain boots if you have them.
