NASA Engineering Design Challenge Summer Adventure Camp

This summer, the Indiana Academy hosted several day camps for students in grades 4-10. Each of our week-long camps were full of hands-on and fun-filled activities. Camps included:

  • Starting from Scratch: Computer Programming – Campers learned how to use code to make a range of programs, including animations, stories, and games. Attendees of the Silly Science camp performed simple experiments using household items to learn basic science principles.
  • Virtual Reality: Building Your Own World – Participants learned the basics of 3D programming and learned the history of virtual reality.
  • Let’s Get Baking – Campers learned mixing methods to create decadent desserts, including breads, pies, cakes, and custards. Run Your Own Restaurant – In this camp, the kids had to write a menu then make homemade pasta, sauces, and desserts. All campers also had to practice proper etiquette during the camp.
  • NASA Engineering Design Challenge – This exciting camp was funded in part by a grant from NASA, and it encouraged students to explore the unique challenges faced by NASA scientists and engineers as they design the next generation of aeronautic and space vehicles, habitats, and technology.
