Explore aerospace, mechanical, and electrical engineering in the PRISMS makerspace, the PiLab! Our summer course in engineering exploration will excite future engineers with a series of hands on design projects utilizing high-tech tools such as 3D printers, laser engraver, microcontrollers, and computer aided design (CAD). Each class students will use the Engineering Design Process to solve problems and produce unique solutions. During the first half of the course, students will focus on the use of CAD to design, construct, and launch compressed air rockets. Then, during the second half, students will explore autonomous robot design and will conclude with a Sumo robot competition!

Are you looking for fun science experiments for kids? Biology is the study of living things. Understanding the natural world and the things that live in it is really cool. Exploring living things will be more exciting if professional guidance and biological equipment is at hand. Welcome to PRISMS summer camp! Teachers at PRISMS summer camp will provide a safe environment in the well-equipped laboratory for young students to observe, explore, and study life and living organisms around us. Students will do hands-on experiments on DNA, proteins, bacteria, plants, and/or animals and learn exciting biology trivia facts.

What can be cooler than creating some intelligent robots? Not just building robots that can carry out repetitive actions, campers in this camp will install intelligence into robots, virtual or physical robots. Campers will start with exploring the concept of artificial intelligence (AI) and trying out some AI examples, then move on to learning how to build intelligent robots. Intelligent robots should contain the feedback loop of perception, thinking and action. Campers not only will gain some computer programming skills, but also get to experience the state-of-the-art of AI and robotics.

Nature is for poets among the most inspiring of all muses, and PRISMS is lucky enough to find itself situated near beautiful walking trails, open fields, verdant forests, and babbling streams—perfect settings to be inspired by and write in. In this humanities course, students will read some of the important works of the genre by writers like William Wordsworth, Robert Frost, and Mary Oliver. Students will also write their own nature poems too by practicing techniques of close observation and specific description. Together, they will workshop their poems in class, and at the conclusion of the course, they will present their poems in a formal reading for their classmates.

Tuition fee: $1,600 for two weeks (or $800 for one week), including lunch
