Build robots from junk, program robots to talk, avoid obstacles, and sneak around in the dark. Explore the growing world of robotics and see how fun it can be.  Morning or afternoon sessions are available (9:00 am – 11:30 am and 12:00 – 2:30 pm).  Maximum of 12 students per session.

Dynamic Design Days: 7th and 8th graders, your design career starts at Saint Ursula Academy!  This camp will introduce you to the real world of design, which has a huge impact on your everyday life. Good design has the potential to make a positive difference on the quality of everybody's world, both locally and globally.  Whether you see yourself working in the world of fashion, graphics, illustration, car design, interior design, web design, as an animator at Pixar or even becoming a renowned architect, here is where it all begins.  Did you know that 90% of information to your brain is visual? Because you are bombarded with images around the clock, the need to be able to interpret and send messages is vital.  Join this hands-on design camp to learn how to decipher and generate pictures to persuade, inform and amuse.  We will do simple design exercises to learn to abstract and present ideas, compose, use color to illustrate and develop graphics for a little love story.  No experience necessary!  Two sessions are available (9:00 am – 11:30 am or 12:00 pm – 2:30 pm).  Maximum of 9 students per session.
