Alamo City Moms Blog loves to partner with The DoSeum! Learn more about The DoSeum’s Summer Camps in this sponsored post.
This summer, The DoSeum will offer special tech-themed camps based on their Summer of Tech initiative, where kids will become tech wizards and explore The DoSeum’s digiPlaySpace summer exhibit.
Check out these fun, tech-focused camps from The DoSeum this summer! All still have open spots for registration here.
Designing Bridges: Working as a Civil Engineer (ages 8–11)
Don’t burn bridges—learn how to build them! In Designing Bridges, children will learn the fundamentals to becoming civil engineers through understanding both the requirements of the occupation and the beginnings of the necessary STEM concepts. For example, balance and force are important for a structure to stand alone and function. Whether designing a playground structure, a tent for camping, or a bridge, an engineer must have a good plan, the best materials, and the ability to conduct tests. Campers will leave with knowledge of science, technology, engineering, math, and the engineering design process.
Moving in the Future: A Transportation Engineer’s Journey (ages 9–11)
What will transportation in the future look like? We invite all young transportation engineers to camp as we need your problem solving and creativity skills to design and build models for future transportation needs. Campers will blend science, technology, engineering, and math as they explore the properties of magnets and other objects. Transportation engineers will develop plans and construct a model while the DoSeum provides the materials, space, and fun!
Catching the Wind: Designing Windmills (ages 5–7)
Just because you aren’t supposed to chase windmills doesn’t mean you can’t design them (and then joust all you want)! In Catching the Wind, kids will learn all about the concept of wind and how it can be harnessed into energy to do important work. Children will be introduced to the concept of renewable energy and how it is becoming an incredibly important resource. By the end of camp, each child will plan, create, and improve his or her very own working windmills from various materials.
