Building Cities Camp

Building Cities Camp

This activity has finished and is no longer running.

In Building Cities Camp, students will explore civil, electrical, industrial, and environmental engineering. They will explore energy production, filtering of water filtration, and building structures.
Cities are incredible feats of engineering. Giant skyscrapers made of steel and glass soars thousands of feet into the air. Cities began to form when farmers were able to make more food than they could eat, allowing other people to take up trades. Ancient cities were built to bring people together for protection, to promote trade, and improve efficiency. Over time, centralizing government, having art and culture centers, and bringing industries together to improve productivity all became key in development of cities. While many cities have developed over hundreds or even thousands of years, in modern times some cities, like Songdo in South Korea, are being built from the ground up in a very short time. Students will take up the role of a team of city planners, looking to design the best city in the world from the ground up.

How many instructors would you have?
We keep our class sizes small to maximize our students' experience. Our Junior Camp will have a maximum of 8 kids and our Apprentice/Master camp will have a maximum of 12. There will be two instructors for each group.

I have one child in the older group and another in the younger group. Would they get to be in the same space or are there different rooms?
We will have both age groups (4-7 and 8-14) in the large multipurpose room. This is especially great for siblings! Each group will be led by their respective camp instructors.

Do I need to send a laptop with my child?
Not at all. All equipment and materials will be provided. Most of our activities will have take-home creations (except Robotics)


Please pack your child a nut-free lunch and snacks. Food will not be provided. Bringing a snack for each session is advised.

Bottled water and filtered water refill will be provided.
