Exploring the Tallgrass Prairie

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 and 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.

Fashion & STEM: A Perfect Fit

On the first day of camp you will create your own fantasy apparel design and then you will explore the process of bringing designs to life. First, by bringing your design into a computer aided design (CAD) program and then by testing fabrics in the material science testing lab. You will answer the question - Which fabric is the best fit for your design? Design your own repeating pattern and print it on the campus fabric printer. Create a custom hair bow and backpack in the construction lab and finally use full-sized dress forms to build a wearable non-traditional design that you will model at the end of camp runway show and open house.

Camp MultiMedia

Camp MultiMedia is a week-long summer camp that offers middle-school-aged campers the opportunity to become creators, and not just consumers, of digital media.For almost a decade, CMM has introduced campers to innovative technology that is already related to their interests as consumers of media. Importantly, while campers acquire notable technological skills (in programming or software use or hardware modification) they are also given instruction to apply aesthetic principles to the artifacts that they design. This year's specializations include: 3-D Modeling and Printing, Video Game Design, Advanced Video Game Design (Minecraft & Raspberry Pi) & Photo and Video for Social Media.

Introduction to Robotics

Campers will form teams to design and build Lego EV3 robots. Team members will work together programming their robots to solve a variety of simulated problems. For boys and 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.

Lights, Action, Magic!

Explore science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) through the understanding of magic. This camp is designed for 4th through 9th grade campers who have communication disorders, learning disabilities, or are considered at-risk/low literacy learners. Activities will include demonstrations of magic (discrepant events) that piques the campers’ curiosity and on-campus field trips such as visiting the botanical center. Magic activities will be demonstrated followed by counselors leading campers through steps to be able to explain and demonstrate the magic and the STEM concepts to others. Magic and field trip activities will utilize reading, writing, and theater to retain information learned. On Friday, each team of campers will demonstrate their favorite activity and explain how it works to an audience.
