Our automotive camp program is one of a kind! It incorporates hydraulics projects which include different designs of Hydraulic claws, gas free propulsion cars, catapults and simple machines. Your child gets to participate in competitions such as launching disks to know which travel the fastest and farthest. In the process he/she will learn about the basic concepts vital to fluid power, which includes both hydraulic (liquid) and pneumatic (gas) systems. Our goal is to foster the next generation of young scientists by changing the way they perceive and interacts with the world around them. With a simple challenge, your kid can design and build a machine that solves the problem!
STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOME
- Physics concepts: Hydraulic principles of Pascal’s law
- Acquire knowledge about the evolution of hydraulic energy and how innovative products were built based on the hydraulic principle
- Experience and create a hydraulic system to make a claw, propulsion cars and catapults.
THE BIG PICTURE Hands-on projects related to physics sparks the curiosity to find out how the world around us works. Many of our modern technologies are the results of these scientific discoveries. This journey starts with exploration and having fun but may ultimately lead to solving world problems. On the journey, students of physics build critical thinking, scientific minds, and quantitative skills, which can be applied to all aspects of life.
