Girls in Engineering Camp

July 19 - July 23

Event run by Harper College.

In this camp the girls will explore the engineering design process, basic 3D modeling software, 3D printing, programming, and machine learning. They will design a roller coaster using pipe insulation, marbles, and objects within the room, print a 3D model, and create wearable electronics.

Funded by a grant from the Fabricators and Manufacturers Association, this week-long camp for middle-school girls, will dive into the engineering design process, career opportunities, basic 3D modeling software, 3D printing, programming, and machine learning. Students will learn to think and design like an engineer by utilizing the engineering process to design a roller coaster using pipe insulation, marbles, and objects within the room. Additional activities will include designing and printing a 3D model, creating wearable electronics, and experimenting with machine learning/computer vision. The IDEAShop Girls in Engineering camp is perfect for young and creative minds who have interests in engineering.

7/19/21 – 7/23/21 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, daily.

Students will need a laptop (Chromebooks are NOT compatible and PC is preferred) with a USB port as well as access to Google Drive. Students should bring a daily lunch.
