June 17 - 21, 2019 Mission Mars Exploration Camp Week

Your task this week is to build and program a Mars rover to explore the surface of Mars. The Builder group will design and build crew quarters, an energy source, in addition to vehicles to explore the surface. Engineers will build EV3 rovers to gather rocks to study, search for water, and rescue Opportunity, the rover which went silent during the last dust storm (June -October 2018).

Summer Camp Information

Camps are organized and led by the two experienced teachers and FLL Coaches. Each week has two groups of 12 campers: Builders for children entering grades 1-3 and Engineers for children entering grades 4-7.

The camps meet in several rooms in the upstairs of Westminster UCC church building. Enter on 4th Avenue east door. Campers need to bring along a lunch. The whole group will walk to the Cowley Park (6th + McClellan) for lunch and a play break outside during the lunch hour.
