Now in its seventh year, Camp Multimedia is a week-long summer camp that offers middle-school-aged students the opportunity to become creators, and not just consumers, of digital media.

In 2015, Camp Multimedia students will be able to choose specialized instruction in one of four areas:

  • 3-D Animation: Conceive and create 3-D digital projects using movie-quality animation tools.

  • Video Game Design: Create your own game via drag-and-drop programming interfaces.

  • Advanced Video Game Design (for those who have already taken VGD): This specialization takes Minecraft to a new level, using the Raspberry-Pi edition to tap into programming hacks for the world's most popular video game.

  • Video Creation and Production: Work as part of a project team to create and edit short-form videos using special effects software.

As weather and time allows, CMM will also use the CHAS portable iPad lab to take students onto campus to create multimedia projects via built-in features in the iPad 2 that allow for the integration of text, image, and video.

Monday, July 6, 2015 - 8:30 am to 3:00 pm

Campers will form teams to design and build Lego EV3 robots. Team members will work together to program their robots to solve a variety of simulated problems. For girls with no previous through beginner level robotics and programming experience, this camp will build programming, design, and problem solving skills in an exciting and fun environment.

Friday, June 26, 2015 - 9:00 am to 12:00 pm

Come explore the tallgrass prairie through art, science, and technology! We will visit UNI's prairie preserves to learn about the plants and animals that live on the prairie. Then create photographs, sketches, and other art inspired by our exploration. If you love being outdoors and learning about nature and art this camp is for you!

Friday, June 26, 2015 - 9:00 am to 3:00 pm

Curious children, grades K-5, are invited.  Throughout the week, students will be deeply engaged in exploration of hands-on S.T.E.M. (science, technology, engineering and math) projects.  Leadership skills will be integrated through STEAM and arts-based instruction.  The camp's goal is making STEAM fun AND available for all children through camp scholarships. 

Friday, June 26, 2015 - 9:00 am to 3:30 pm

Logistics: $100.00 registration fee includes programming and use of LEGO Renewable Energy kits. Lunch and a snack are provided daily. Campers must wear jeans or other long pants and tennis shoes or other close-toed shoes in the ITC labs.

Spend the week at the UNI Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) facility exploring energy sources, especially renewable energy. Get your hands on EET lab equipment (including solar panels, wind tunnel, and turbine) to investigate circuits, generators, and motors. Once you've got the basics of energy down you'll work in teams with LEGO Renewable Energy Kits to solve a series of challenges.

Friday, June 26, 2015 - 9:00 am to 3:30 pm

Logistics: $345.00 registration fee includes programming, use of lab tools and supplies, and camper's own (to take home) sumo robot kit (to take home). Campers should bring a sack lunch and snacks daily and wear comfortable clothing.

Build your own fighting sumo robot in just one week! Design, build, program, and test your own mini-sumo robot then challenge fellow campers to a match of power and wits in the sumo ring (like Japanese Sumo wrestlers). Can your robot expel all challengers while holding its ground? Everyone will exit the ring and the week with new design and programming skills, knowledge of autonomous vehicle robotics and their own robot to take home.

Special Note: This camp is open to beginner through advanced robotics levels and may be repeated for more advanced experiences. Repeat campers who return with their robot receive a half-price discount on registration.*
