Engineering For Kids of Phoenix Metro Summer Camp @ Uptown Jungle: The Science of Superpowers and Sphero Coding: On a Roll (Grades K – 2)

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s… Superheroes Week!

Campers will suit up as they seek ways to protect the world and save mankind in the process. They will join a league of heroes and compete against others by performing engineering-related challenges, such as deflecting hazards with Captain America’s shield, reverse-engineering Batman’s rocket car, and testing Spider-Man’s web strength. They’ll also have the opportunity to create superhero alter egos for themselves by the end of the week. Let your child discover their own STEM superpowers in one of our most popular programs!

PM Session: Sphero Coding: On a Roll

The Sphero Mini is a kid-friendly, rolling robo-ball capable of carrying out custom coded actions. In this camp, Juniors will learn about the bot’s inner mechanisms that let it move as they gain the necessary coding knowledge to tackle some pretty big challenges. Navigating mazes, constructing LEGO carapaces, and speeding through a stunt course with automation are all experiences to be had in “On a Roll.” Check out why kids come for the tech but stay for the thrills!

 

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)
