The stakes are high in the Discovery Hall Programs new overnight camp. Marine DeTECHtives combines robotics and engineering to encourage campers to think like an engineer. 

Technology sleuths will uncover marine technology through hands-on activities including building a simple robot, piecing together a circuit board and designing a remotely operated vehicle (ROV). Campers will then use what they learn for a mini ROV competition. 

Marine DeTECHtives will only be offered July 5 through the 7. Space is limited for the three day, two night camp, so, register early.

Registration opens for all DHP camps on January 4, 2017.  See list of camps below, and learn more about each camp by clicking here.
