Technology Adventure

Are you a potential entrepreneur? Do you have an idea for a business or product? Bring your dreams to life at this camp, based on the reality show “Shark Tank.” Our “contestants” will use Microsoft Publisher to design a flyer, business cards, and letterhead. In addition, they will use Photoshop to design a company logo and PowerPoint to create a business presentation, which will be shown to a panel of “Shark Tank” investors. Come see if you can make a deal with the sharks!


The basics of every crime scene will be covered as they are used in everyday police and investigative work. From identifying fingerprints to handwriting analysis, all techniques will be examined in order to answer the classic question: Who did it?


Whether you’re an aspiring photographer or an avid social media fan,  you will learn how to create the perfect image with the camera that's always with you: your phone. The week will be filled with hands-on activities and creative challenges that will promote your ability to take bold, eye-catching photos.


Come for an exciting week of exploration, skill building, and testing limits. It’s a hands-on learning experience where we introduce basic engineering concepts, 3D printing, and safe use of hand tools in our state-of-the-art STEM learning lab. Expect activities like a catapult building competition, 3D-printed cars, and soldering basic circuits.
