The Art of Invention: Chain-Reaction STEAM Machines™ Spring Break Camp

Good evening,

I’m excited to announce some new chain-reaction machine camps in Chandler and Mesa during spring break!

The Art of Invention: Chain-Reaction STEAM Machines™ Spring Break Camp

Description: In this exciting hands-on day camp, students will be introduced to the engineering design process while they learn and use basic science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) concepts like simple machines, electric circuits, Arduino microcontroller programming, music, and storytelling. The project-based approach will emphasize problem identification, brainstorming, problem solving, rapid prototyping, teamwork, and communication. The camp will culminate with the design and construction of a giant thematic Rube Goldberg®-style chain-reaction machine! Session 1 of the camp is for ages 10 – 15, and Sessions 2 and 3 are for ages 11 – 16.


Session 1: March 6 – 10, 2017; Registration:
