TeachersWhoTech is offering 3 different full-day Summer Camps for students ages 10-14 in Seattle.
Our curriculum challenges students to tinker, make mistakes, problem-solve, and succeed in their creative endeavors.
What is This Camp About?
Imagine it, engineer it, and bring it to life! In this week-long camp, students will explore the exciting world of robotics, engineering and coding. They will be engaging in coding while experiencing the versatility of materials. This camp will have your student working in teams, making friends, and creating from day one.

Day 3: Robotics: Using Hydraulics
Day 4: Robotics: Using Motors
Day 5: Coding Microcontrollers
STEAM and Project-Based Learning Skills Development:
– Creativity and innovation
– Collaborative teamwork
– Adapting to new challenges and being resourceful
- What Will Students Take Home?
Students in this camp will take home a USB with the documentation of the week’s learning and discovery process through their projects. Projects in this class include : prototype robotic hands, hydraulic machines and robotic cars. All projects can be taken home after the camp for continued improvement and tinkering!
- Who is a good fit for this camp?
Do you like to figure out how and why things work?
Are you interested in knowing more about robots?
Are you a “hands-on” learner?
This summer camp is ideal for students who enjoy problem-solving and want to develop interpersonal skills through working in a collaborative team setting. As students have fun designing and building different machines and robots, this camp helps lay a strong foundation for future study in math, computer engineering, electrical and mechanical engineering and other STEM subjects.
