Engineering For Kids of Phoenix Metro Summer Camp @ Uptown Jungle: The Future of Flight: Drone Programming and Biology Games (Grades 3 – 8)

Back by popular demand, our updated drone program will blow campers away!

Our drones can quickly be transformed between hovercraft and aviation modes, granting twice the number of opportunities to tackle tricky engineering and programming challenges. Drift around the tight corners of a camper-designed obstacle course and master the skies in customized, programmed flight contests, all while gaining real-world knowledge of how drones are already shaping our future!

PM Session: Biology Games

Our popular educational video game platform returns! In this special collection of new games, kids will embark on a quest to learn many of the facets of biology, like genealogy and ecology. They’ll work together to tackle several challenging conundrums faced by life on Earth and create solutions to inspire a better world. Our instructors will lead the topic discussions, teach the basics of each game to the campers, and eventually cut the kids loose so they can each play and problem-solve at their own pace. See video games in a new light with this cool week of camp.

 

Engineering For Kids Summer Camp 2020 @ Uptown Jungle in NE Mesa

We are excited to continue our partnership with Uptown Jungle in NE Mesa for a second summer! Uptown Jungle is more than a trampoline park! It’s a city-style, indoor playground metropolis that allows kids to enter a world where they become a superhero, rock-climber, explorer, or even an Uptown ninja warrior all inside a child-safe environment. The indoor park features a huge variety of action-oriented fun activities that guarantee your kid will have a blast while getting an excellent workout. As part of this partnership, our campers will have full access to all the park’s attractions. Please bring a pair of Uptown Jungle-approved non-slip “grip” socks each day as they are required for play. If you need a pair or two, they are available for purchase for a small fee from Uptown Jungle.

If you have questions or require assistance during registration, please email us at phoenixinfo@engineeringforkids.com or call/text us at 480-779-8184. For information on specific activities and curriculum, click on the individual weeks and blue hyperlinks

Regarding Health

The health and well being of your child, our staff, and the public has always been our top concern in running camps. We want you to rest assured that we’re taking many precautions to keep your child safe. These steps include but not limited to:

  • greatly lowered enrollment caps to ensure proper distancing in our camp spaces (8-12 students, size depends on classroom space)
  • sanitizing touch-points and camp materials routinely
  • staff and campers sanitizing hands frequently
  • staff mandated to wear face masks 
  • monitoring facility capacity & policies prior to taking a break (entertainment facilities only)
