STEAM TechnoCamp

Course Description

Let's go full STEAM-ahead into the Summer with hands-on designing and coding! Campers will cover everything from physical science concepts to engineering design while bringing these science concepts to life. Loaded with relevant & engaging STEAM learning, students will build prototypes along with completing the fun challenges that awaken their imagination! Students will be able to see their SAM Labs prototypes come to life right in front of them through the power of hands-on coding!

Morning session: Incoming 3rd through 6th grade

Afternoon session: Incoming 1st through 3rd grade

What is the SAM Labs STEAM System?

The STEAM solution from SAM Labs is often used across all curriculum settings. Students are guided to innovate systems that power prototypes and create solutions. 

Do I need to bring a STEAM Kit?

No, NISD will provide kits for students to use at camp.

Does get my child get to keep the STEAM kit?

Unfortunately, the STEAM kits are for classroom use only. 

Does my child need to have any programming or robotics experience to enroll in this robotics engineering camp?

No, this camp curriculum is designed for students from beginner level to advanced level. Students with no experience will be given an introduction into both robotics & programming.

Is a snack or lunch provided at NISD TechnoCamps?

No. Students are asked to bring a drink and a snack for the 1/2 day camps.  If your child is attending a full day camp, bring 2 snacks/drinks and a bagged lunch.

What will my child learn in this lego robotics summer camp?

Students will learn to build, design, and program their designs  through a variety of challenges. Students will learn to include sensors, motors, and gears, and complex mechanisms into their designs to complete multiple robotics engineering challenges. Students will also learn the engineering iterative process to completing a new challenge. This camp is also good practice for students looking to participate in campus robotics clubs.  .

My child is not within the age range of this camp. Is this camp appropriate for my child?

The age ranges provided are for informational and guidance purpose only. We feel that parents are the ultimate judge of where their child will comfortable. If parents are uncertain, we encourage parents to call us for appropriate recommendations on placement of their kids.
