Summer Engineering Camps Wrap Up

Spring Valley held summer engineering camps for middle school boys (June 13-16) and for middle school girls (June 20-23).  Students had a lot of fun learning about engineering and robotics while working together on projects in teams.  They learned about (1) isometric sketching, electrical circuits, truss bridges, and gear ratios, (2) robot building, programming, and driving, and (3) engineering design, problem-solving, and teamwork.  For their final projects, they worked together on robots to compete in the VEX Nothing But Net game, and they competed with them on the final afternoon of the camps.
