Place: Dunwoody College of Technology
Cost: $120

During STEM Camp, you’ll:

  • Tour Boston Scientific on the first day (transportation provided) and attend a career panel of BSC employees in STEM jobs.
  • Design, build, and program a Smart Flashlight using SolidWorks CAD software, Stratasys 3D printers, CNC machining, and Arduino code.

  • Use engineering design processes in a team to compete with other teams for engineering dominance while applying physical sciences concepts to real-world scenarios.
  • Explore how building designs – both electronically and physically – use STEM to help shape the backdrops of our lives. You’ll explore architecture and civil engineering by making a physical model during a tower design activity and also learn how the sun shapes cities by using SketchUp Make software to digitally study Downtown Minneapolis.

Rosie’s Girls

In partnership with Dunwoody College of Technology, Girl Scouts River Valleys is offering a unique educational experience inspired by Rosie the Riveter designed to build strong, confident girls through hands-on learning.

At this day-long workshop, you will practice problem solving, experiment with technology, develop leadership and communication skills, and take positive risks by trying new things. Led by female Dunwoody instructors, you’ll will explore a range of educational and career options in a girl-centered environment and work with a variety of materials—including wood and metal—as well as learn about sustainable design and renewable energy. You will also help design and give voice to future Rosie’s Girls programming.

When: July 25, 2017
Time: 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
Place: Dunwoody College of Technology
Cost for Members: $45
