STEM III – Cathedral Heights

Overview

We take Science, Technology, Engineering and Math to the moon and beyond! Our campers launch rockets, design water filtration systems, dust for fingerprints, build roller coasters and robots, and create their own video games with Hopscotch. Each week of camp focuses on a specific topic, which campers explore through various projects and challenges, such as identifying inks and liquids left at a crime scene to find out whodunit in Forensics. All locations enjoy water play and indoor/outdoor games each day, and any experiments that can be done outside will be. After all, it is summer camp

Weekly Themes

LEGO Play-Well Master Engineering

Looking for an exploratory, hands-on STEM program based on building? This is it! Led by trained Play-Well instructors, campers will be guided through daily activities and challenges incorporating physics, engineering, and architecture based on the week’s theme. Each week incorporates a fun, imaginative world that kids already know. Play-Well engineering is about the process, not the result, which means this camp is a great place for kids to learn and discover through play.

Culinary Concoctions

Welcome all that bubbles, fizzes, floats, and EXPLODES during this week of kitchen chemistry and foodie physics! Campers learn the science of combustion and reactions by devising delectable dishes and stirring up surprising snacks! Headfirst Summer Camps is the only place where edible eruption is the goal, not the #fail…don’t try these creative concoctions at home!

Claymation

Is your camper ready to be molded into the next great animator? During Edventures™ Claymation week, campers will collaborate on a storyboard, bring clay characters to life, film, and edit an original stop-motion animation movie! Using Claytoon™ clay, bendy bones, and modeling tools, campers will learn the fundamentals of sculpture. Campers will also explore how to use HUE HD™ cameras and mics to capture the ideal shots, and how to effortlessly weave stills together on HUE Animation Studio™. Claymation week will challenge campers to see themselves as directors, writers, editors, and videographers, and culminate in a celebratory film festival!

Robotics with Dot, Dash and Sphero + Snap Circuits Light

Turn down the lights and the party starts with Snap Circuits Light™! This technicolor technology will keep campers wonder-filled with 175 projects and unlimited experimentation. Campers will be led through scaffolded circuitry projects involving strobe lights, spinners, LED fibers, propeller fans, music players, and even a glowing egg! But that’s not all – campers will also get coding and programming experience working with award-winning educational robots, Dot™, Dash™, and Sphero SPRK™! From robo-jousting to maze races, story-telling to music making, this week is a digital dream!

Patent Pending

Ever had a million-dollar idea? Enjoy taking things apart to see how they work? Wish you could figure out a better or faster way to do something – get to school, pack lunch, or mow the lawn? Join us for this invention themed week. We’ll learn about famous innovators and the obstacles they had to overcome. Campers will plan the blueprint, build the prototype, and pitch inventions using littleBits™ award-winning technology. By incorporating kid-friendly electronic building blocks and circuitry, campers will bring their ideas to life in our digitalized world. It’s the best thing since sliced bread.

LEGO Boost Robotics + iPad Coding

What do a workable guitar, a friendly cat, and a humanoid robot have in common? They’re the beginning of endless creations campers can engineer during LEGO Boost™ Robotics week! This visual learning platform is ‘learn-by-doing’ and will challenge campers to tinker and toggle their way through engaging projects. Once campers finish crafting their robots, they’ll be able to program them to detect light, color, sound, and touch, allowing the experience to be personalized and adapted to the coder’s interests. Awarded the 2018 Tech Toy of the Year for its utility, innovation, and charm, this week is one your camper won’t want to miss!

Swim

This camp includes a daily Water Play session. Water Play is a fun way for campers to cool off in the middle of the day. The water play activity will vary throughout the week, but will always be a fun and active way for campers to cool down from the summer heat.
