3-D Modeling Camp
Biomedical Services is proud to present the first of many camps for 8-12 grade students. 1/2 day camp students will doing the tests that the Center for Disease Control uses when identifying the causative agent of an epidemic.
This camp will include lab skills such as DNA extraction (removing DNA from cells), PCR (the zerox machine of the DNA world), ELISA (using antibodies to ID a pathogen), and Gel Electrophoresis (you have heard of DNA Fingerprinting!). The scientific method will be stressed.
Very lab intensive! Back to back fun!
In this camp students will be introduced to the same 3D modeling software professionals use worldwide. They will learn the basic fundamentals of 3D modeling using Siemens PLM Solid Edge Design Software. Students will have an opportunity to utilize 3D printing as they explore Engineering Principles of 3D Modeling.
For Rising 9th, 10th and 11th Graders
One Camper said "Best Camp Ever! I went to a camp at Vanderbilt and at the end of the camp we made a poster. I came to Greenpower camp and at the end of the camp we built and drove a car!"
Exploring Engineering with WOW Factor is a two week camp providing 8th - 10th grade students the opportunity to build and drive an electric car. Through this electrifying hands-on project based educational activity, students will use CAD software, collaborative skills, and problem solving to complete their camp project. The last day of camp includes testing the car with parents and friends invited.
This is a two week camp running Monday through Thursday June 18th - 21st and Monday through Thursday June 25th - 28th from 8 -11:30 each day.
Students will experience the day to day operations of a Working Farm! Lots of hands on activities!
Each of the 3 days will focus on a specific aspect of farm operations. Day 1 will highlight pasture and free range poultry (chickens). Day 2 will focus on the organic garden with farm fresh to table organic produce. Day 3 introduces the hooved animals.
A hay ride and a horse and buggy photo op will be a couple of the many activities the participants will experience.
