Calling all technology sleuths! If you are interested in robotics and engineering then this camp is for you! Students, rising 7th through 8th grade, will uncover marine technology through hands-on activities including how to build a simple robot, solder components on a circuit board, design and build a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) for a mini competition, and much more!! In this 4-day, 3-night camp students will bring out their inner deTECHtive to discover ‘what is technology?’.

The camp will feature various hands-on group activities encouraging students to think like an engineer. The stakes are high as they design, build and test various technologies in preparation for an underwater robot challenge.
