Level 1
"What if?" The question that sparks creativity. Neurons>Bits>Atoms transforms that question from thought to product with design thinking using introductory CAD software, Tinkercad. Bring to this curious mind, a willingness to learn and a solid work ethic and you'll walk out with physical products that you create in your brain (neurons), design with software (bits) and output using digital fabrication tools like 3D printer and laser cutters (atoms).   
     
Level 2
Design Tech Level 2 is a continuation from Level 1. Level 2 transforms that question from thought to product with design thinking using parametric CAD software, OnShape. Bring your curious mind, a willingness to learn and a solid work ethic and you'll walk out with physical products that went from thought to file to real things!  Please note: A camper must have completed a previous Design Tech Level 1 in order to sign up for Level 2.


These camps are being offered in partnership with the Einstein Project.

All supplies you will need for camp will be purchased for you. You have two options to receive those supplies:

  1. Pick-up your kits from the Brown County STEM Innovation Center on the UW-Green Bay Campus on a select date prior to camp.
  2. ​We can ship the camp supplies directly to you for an additional $30 fee.​

nullDisciplinary Policies

The camp reserves the right, upon notification of parents, to dismiss any camper during any session for improper conduct, language, dress or attitude which, in the judgment of the summer camp administrative and counseling staff, is detrimental to the well-being of other campers or smooth operation of the camp.

Cancellation Policy

In the event a camper must cancel, the Camps Office should be notified no later than 10 days before the start date of the camp session in order to receive a refund. Requests received after that date will not receive a refund. No refunds will be made for withdrawal due to disciplinary reasons or after the camp has started.
 
In the event a camper requests to switch camp sessions, an additional $25 processing fee will be applied.
 
We reserve the right to cancel any camp due to low enrollment; in such a case, all fees paid will be refunded or the camper can choose to apply fees to a different camp/class in the same year.
