Project IGNITE Summer Camp - "Exploring AVIATION"

2018 Project Ignite Logo

2018 Camp Flyer

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 AVIATION”!  Students will spend four exhilarating days rotating through five learning activities designed to peak interest and explore the wide world of flight.  The week will conclude with a field trip to the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force in Dayton, Ohio, the birthplace of flight. Students won’t want to miss this opportunity to build new skills that peak curiosity and “ignite” ingenuity.


Aerial Adventures

Cool Your Jets: In this course students will explore several concepts of flight including the Bernoulli Principle.  Students will explore how their body handles air resistance and drag through fun and interactive activities. Students may even learn a new dance or two.

Destination Drones: In the 2018 Winter Olympics over 1000 drones were the stars of the opening ceremony as they lit up the night sky and amazed viewers. In this course students will not only learn how to fly a basic drone, but program it to complete simple tasks using an iPad application.

Earning Your Wings:  Students will learn the basics of flight through an interactive computer simulator.  In addition students will explore the importance of radar and complete activities using the flight alphabet.  Did someone say “Alpha, Bravo, Charley, Delta, Echo...”?

Just Plane Fun:  The art of making a paper airplane takes on a whole new aerial twist in this course.  Students will experiment with various airplane designs and accessories to develop the perfect flight model.  A competition will be held to determine the best design.

Raging Rockets: In this class students will recycle a plastic bottle in a way they never dreamed. With a little ingenuity and adult guidance students will build a rocket and blast it off into outer space (or maybe just a few hundred feet in the air).
