GREAT Summer Camps in Engineering for Kids


Dates: Six one-week camps in June and July

Cost: Varies

The GREAT summer camps are aimed at kids who want to unleash their creativity while learning about computer graphics, robotics, and programming by making games, animations, and robots.

GREAT-Elementary: A week-long camp for entering 4–6th graders who will create animations and games using Scratch, a fun programming environment. No prior experience is necessary. Camp runs from 9 a.m. to noon, M–F; a snack is provided.

GREAT-Middle school: For one week, entering 7–9th graders are immersed in Alice, a 3D programming suite, to create 3D animations and games. Campers will also build, program and compete LEGO® MINDSTORMS® robots in exciting challenges. Camp runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., M–F; lunch is provided.

GREAT-Advanced Robotics: A week-long camp for entering 10–12th graders. Campers will build wacky, useful machines that react to the world (and people) using embedded computers, sensors, and motors. Camp runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., M–F; lunch is provided.

GREAT-Advanced Programming: In this two-week-long camp, entering 10–12th graders will create and write games in the popular Python programming language — in teams and alone. Advanced Programing is ideal those showing an interest in or aptitude for computers, programming, or math. Camp runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., M–F; lunch is provided.

What is Entertainment Arts and Engineering?

Learn the secrets behind video games and animation by creating and building characters for games, animation or machinima. Our Entertainment Arts and Engineering Summer Program (EAESP) combines theory with hands-on practical projects, enabling high school students to understand computer graphics at a high level. EAESP introduces 3D modeling, texturing, rigging, animation and rendering concepts via industry-leading software such as Autodesk® Maya® and Adobe® Photoshop®.

This year, EAE is hosting 25 courses throughout the summer.
