Project IGNITE Summer Camp - "Exploring Energy"

Project IGNITE logo


Project IGNITE is a summer camp designed for students to experience science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics through hands-on investigations that promote innovation and creativity.  The focus this year will be “Exploring Energy!”  Students will spend four electrifying days rotating through five learning activities designed to peak interest and explore the wide world of energy.  The week will conclude with a field trip to COSI’s Energy Explorers exhibit.  Students won’t want to miss this opportunity to build new skills that peak curiosity and “ignite” ingenuity.


Artistic Forces:  The world of art and energy collide in Artistic Forces!  Students will create works of art through a variety of mediums.   #strawpaint  #sunprints  #marblepaint

Cool Coasters:  Students will create a small roller coaster and explore potential and kinetic energy. The roller coaster will include hills and loops to demonstrate and measure the conversion of potential and kinetic energy!

Energetic Engineers:  ENERGETIC Engineers Wanted!  Inquiring kids come design, build and experiment with ENERGY through energetic engineering challenges!  We will investigate various forms of energy through hands-on learning experiences.

Kinetic Kids:  Our bodies are in motion all the time!  It’s important to learn and understand how that motion affects us.  During this camp we will learn about healthy habits and fun ways to keep our bodies in motion!

Programming Power:  Have you ever considered what it takes to make the tablet apps you play work?  In this class you will learn the basics of computer coding without the fuss.  Throughout the week, we will learn how to make and publish your own game on an iPad using a free coding app!
