|The engineering design process|
like real energy to build a tunnel through the sand without using our hands as tools and built speedy shelters out of everyday materials.

On Tuesday, we focused on aerospace engineering. We learned about how engineers need to make trade offs and test their designs in order for things to get off the ground.
A rocket going a long distance needs to have a lot of fuel, but that's also a lot more weight that needs to be lost somewhere else. We built our own rovers and for different missions with this in mind. We also made our own stomp rockets to send on these missions from the moon to Pluto!

|Having a blast with bubbles|
Engineers are all about improvements so we used our brains to come up with a new way to hold our soda cans without the plastic rings which can hurt animals. We also used scraps of other materials and upcycled them into our own vehicles.
Campers also had to complete our bubble challenges, outside. Using a series of different materials we tried to make giant bubbles, many bubbles in one blow, bouncy bubbles and more.

Our younger campers built lions and alligators able to follow visual or movement based commands.
