Study ecology, zoology and other sciences at summer camp!

Science camps offer many different activities that will engage the young scientist in your family. In many (but not all) cases, science camps can even specialize in a certain branch or sphere of study. Camps we list here or have listed in the past include ecology camps, technology camps, and camps studying zoology, space, physics and numerous other scientific pursuits.

Be sure to fully investigate the listings below to find the one that will help your child most richly discover their world and come to a deeper scientific understanding and appreciation of their world.

Please note that we also offer listings focusing on technology and computer summer camps.

In many cases, science camps offer limited space so you may want to enroll your child as soon as possible.

Listed below are Science Camps or summer camps with at least some science curricula. Look into each listing to find out to what extent science is taught.

INTRODUCTION TO PROGRAMMING (RG-100)

Students will learn about the amazing features of Scratch graphical programming language available on the Raspberry Pi  that  helps young people to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively.  Scratch was developed at MIT to help young programmers get started.

INTERMEDIATE PROGRAMMING (RG-200)

Students will learn Python with Raspberry Pi; Python is  a high-level programming language that allows programmers concepts in fewer lines of code. Students will create games using Pygame and they will interact with MineCraft to learn how to build 2D and 3D animations.

advanced programming & intro to electronics (RG-300)

PRE-REQUISITE: RG-200

Students will expand their knowledge of Python with Raspberry Pi working with GPIO interface to control electronic modules. Moreover, they  will learn basic concepts of Electronics and Electricity through experimentation and hands-on activities.

intro to robotics (RG-400)

prerequisite: RG-300

​Students love this course! A hands on approach to learning from building the chassis, installing the motors, connecting interfaces, testing camera programs and integrating to have a semi-autonomous robot.

 The robot is controlled remotely from a separate computer and has a camera that transmits real video

computer vision and robotics Part I & II

(RG-500) prerequisite: RG-400

 

Have you ever wonder how face recognition software work? How does Kinect detect movement in real time? How do driver-less cars work? How is the car plates are detected in the 407? How does augmented reality work? Well that's exactly what students will learn in RG-500.

In Part I students will learn the basics of computer vision using a very powerful library Python OpenCV. Students will learn how to manipulate images, the theory behind image processing, pattern detection and real time animation with several fun examples.

​In Part II students will experiment with different type of sensors such as distance and IR sensors. Students will learn the principle of radar and sonar systems by modifying the robot built in RG-400. Moreover students will integrate the programs learned in Part I and apply it in robotics environment.
