STEM Summer Camp 2024
1st - 3rd grade $325 per week
2024 dates coming soon
Designed for the elementary learner, grades 1st–3rd. Lego WeDo introduces students to the world of robotics by using working motors, sensors and age-appropriate computer programming. During the week long program, students will build animals, soccer players and other characters, then add movement with fun, drag and drop software. Your child will have fun while developing his or her skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics!
2nd - 4th grade $325 per week
WeDo 2.0 makes science, technology, engineering, mathematics and coding come to life. The unique combination of the Lego Brick, classroom friendly software and engaging, standards-based projects results in a resource that builds students' confidence to ask questions, define problems and design their own solutions by putting STEM learning directly in their hands.
First Tech Challenge Team Prep
7th - 10th grade $325 per week
FTC Challenge Team prep robotics build is for students in grades 7th-10th. Under the watchful eyes of members of our 2 time NJ First Tech Challenge State Champion Robotics Team 7149, the ENFORCERS, students will use the GoBilda building systems to reverse engineer a FLAWED robot design. Teams will identify flaws prior to rebuilding the robot, redesign their build, and then test the robot to conquer the PAL modified First Tech Challenge course. It is a complete design system for students who are serious about engineering. If you are serious about your engineering future and hope to be on PAL's nationally competitive First Tech Challenge Team, this is a must attend class to give you the edge.
5th - 9th grade $325 per week
With LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 you can turn LEGO creations into live robots that follow your every command. Work with motors, sensors, a programmable brick to create and command robots of your wildest imagination, including 5 cool robot characters. Follow building instructions and use the application to command your robot. Program robots to walk, talk and move via the intuitive software program, the programmable brick and a computer.
This hands-on program allows students to work independently and at their own pace. With the guidance of EHT PAL Robotics counselors, children will learn and develop their skills.
NASA Astro Camp
5th - 9th grade $325 per week
Astro camp is for kids in grades 5-9 loaded with hands on activities and exploration of NASA missions, providing a connection for all youth to science missions, challenges and resources. Earth Science, Planetary Science, Human Explorations with Moon to Mars and Rocketry will be explored. Activities include designing & building a crew exploration vehicle, building wind turbines and moon exploration. EHT PAL will inspire future generations to learn about space exploration and Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics developing pathways to S.T.E.M. fields.
PAL is the only facility in New Jersey to become a certified NASA Astro Camp Partner.
Rocketry & Aviation
6th - 9th grade $325 per week
This is a very hands-on week of flight exploration designed to expose students to aviation and aerospace careers and to promote S.T.E.M. education. Campers will learn the basics forces of flight, paper airplane design, model rocket design and flight, and then build and fly rockets of various sizes and shapes. We will then test their flight capabilities for height and distance. This is a very hands-on week of flight exploration with a variety of fun summer activities as well! We adhere to the National Association of Rocketry's Model Rocket Safety Code
6th - 12th grade $325 per week
SeaPerch is an innovative underwater robotics program that equips students with the resources they need to build an underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV). Students build the ROV from a kit comprised of low-cost, easily accessible parts, following a curriculum that teaches basic engineering and science concepts with a marine engineering theme. The SeaPerch Program provides students with the opportunity to learn about robotics, engineering, science, and mathematics (STEM) while building an underwater ROV as part of a science and engineering technology curriculum. Throughout the project, students will learn engineering concepts, problem solving, teamwork, and technical applications.
