If you have enjoyed some of the design and building activities we have done this year such as the LINX Wind vehicles, the soda bottle rockets, and the MIT Museum field trip activities, you might be interested in the Design Camp 2008 run by the UMass Lowell. They will have 4 , week-long sessions to select from. Some sessions are for girls only! Course offerings for 6th graders include: Electric Jungle, Carnival Contraptions, Crime Science, Electrical & mechanical Gizmos, Flight School, and TechCreation: Food & Games.
To learn more about this wonderful, fun-filled learning experience, see Mr. Williams for a brochure or visit their web site at: http://www.designcamp.org/
