Digital Circuit Technologies

This is where electrical engineering, the field of designing and developing new equipment, begins. Discover the inner workings of digital circuits by building simple digital electronics. Learn the basics of soldering techniques then move on to more difficult projects. Explore the inner workings of integrated circuit chips to build circuits on computers using logic gates. Completed projects can be brought home after last day of camp.

Magnetic Levitation And Solar Technology

Mag-lev vehicles can provide the high-speed transportation of people and goods to move rapidly and efficiently along the magnetic guide-ways. The aerodynamic efficiency of the vehicle shape is critical to its success . An aerodynamically efficient body shape reduces friction between the air and the vehicle. Jon us to design, build, test and race a vehicle across a track. Campers learn electronic concepts covering direct current obtained through solar cell power and build solar activated devices . Students are instructed in safety methods using tools. Campers will successfully design electronic circuits and build a solar powered device to take home.

Website Building Technology

Begin the week building websites using rapid prototyping tools such as Google Sites. After mastering these skills, campers move on to building websites using raw HTML Hypertext Markup Language. Campers have the option to incorporate technologies such as hyperlinks, cascading style sheets, JavaScript, tables and more in building their websites. Students are encouraged to continue building websites on their own after the camp concludes.
