Open to rising 8th, 9th and 10th graders in South Carolina.
A one-of-a-kind, four-day immersion into engineering and design thinking for rising 7th, 8th and 9th graders in counties across the state. Students take on the role of NASA engineers charged with developing a sustainable colony on Mars. Working through project-based, hands-on team challenges, students learn what engineering is and what engineers do.
iTEAMS Xtreme: Next Generation
A summer day camp for middle schoolers interested in computer science and technology in partner school districts across the state. Explore the world of microcontrollers, electronics and circuits through Arduino technology. In the Arduino & Robotics track, learn how to program your very own microcontrolled robot and pit it against other students' robots in campwide competitions such as Maze Runner and Robot Wars. In the Game Design track, create and play 2D and 3D multiplatform games in campwide competitions.
