High School STEM Camps for 2017:

STEM High School Boot Camp (Grades 9-12)
June 12th-16th ($200) Students Commuting class hours are 8-4pm
STUDENTS with HOUSING (CHECK-IN ON JUne 11th and check-out on june 16th. total camp cost $275)


Game Design Camp
During this five day residence camp at NDSU, participants will be introduced to game design principles which include the design elements of a good game, storyline, role playing, programming techniques, and game music making. Throughout the week students the game design development process will be emphasized as strategy games are created, tested, and demonstrated. During the week students will work with technologies that include Scratch, GameMaker, the Unity Game Engine, and the Python Programming Language. To register for this class, please click here. (12 seats available)

Shaping a Sustainable Clean Energy Future
Students will understand the challenges of conventional energy sources, and learn how to utilize alternative, renewable energy sources like wind and solar, which are essentially carbon free.  This camp will include hands-on activities that will develop engineering skills and teach students how free sunlight can solve our daily energy needs.  Students will also build and refine an energy transformation system that works within given constraints to convert sunlight to electrical energy. To build a successful system, they will apply science concepts they have learned and also tinker, craft, and experiment.  They will use simple tools to design, test, and evaluate processes.    Successfully making your own Solar power conversion system will be a memorable experience! To register for this class, please click here. (12 seats available)

Materials Science
Materials science is a relatively new and broad field. It uses the principles of chemistry, physics, biology, and math to create innovative “new stuff”. The new stuff is rapidly transforming the way that everything from cars to light bulbs are made. It is helping to develop new, high-performing substances such as exotic alloys and super strong and super light composites, “Smart” materials that can remember their shape, repair themselves or assemble themselves into components. Emerging materials include composites, biomaterials, nanomaterials, graphite materials, prosthetics and implants. This program will help you to understand different kind of material properties (stuff) through characterizing, designing, and testing. To register for this class, please click here.
